On 24th of November, we will see a match between Melbourne City and Brisbane Roar at Suncorp Stadium, the home of Brisbane Roar.
Brisbane Roar are as of now second-last in the league with only 3 points to their name. Their overall record of 0-3-1 is not even close to what they would want and with the upcoming match against Melbourne City, it’s hard to expect that will change. Looking at Brisbane’s most recent match against WS Wanderers, they managed to get a draw in a match that looked like it was lost in the first 20 minutes, but Brisbane managed to come back from a 2 goal deficit. The first goal of the match came only 10 minutes in when Riera got WS Wanderers a lead. Only 6 minutes after Wanderers were given a penalty which was not converted into a goal after the 1st attempt, but Riera fixed his mistake and scored a goal off a deflected shot. This put WS Wanderers in a 2 goal lead only 17 minutes in, and at this point, it seemed like all hope was lost for Brisbane Roar. But that was not the case. In 37′, Lopez scored a spectacular goal from outside the penalty box, which reduced the deficit to only 1 goal. Brisbane continued attacking and got a penalty shot awarded to them in 48′, which was converted into a goal by Taggart. This meant teams were leveled at 2:2. Brisbane roar were the more dangerous team in the 2nd half, with 6 goal attempts, but none of their shots found it’s way into the goal. The match ended with a final score of 2:2, a disappointing draw for WS Wanderers and a spectacular comeback from Brisbane.
The visiting team, Melbourne City are coming into this match as the 3rd team in the A-League. Their overall record stands at 2-1-1, with the only team being able to defeat them being Sydney FC (0:3). After a huge defeat against Sydney, Melbourne City bounced back with a win of their own against Wellington Phoenix in their most recent match (2:0). In the mentioned match, City was a team that created almost 3x as many opportunities than their opponents, Wellington Phoenix and held the ball 57% of the time. It’s clear Melbourne City were the dominant side in that fixture and got a well-deserved win. Final score 2:0.
Comparing these two teams, Brisbane Roar simply are not on the same level as Melbourne CIty from what we have seen so far. They have not yet won a match and except their come back in the match against WS Wanderers, they have nothing to show for. On the other side, Melbourne City not only has a better record this season but arguably has a better team. Expect Brisbane to play another hard match and City to add their 3rd win of the season to their record.
