Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne Victory
When: Saturday, February 6 at 17:05 AEDT
Where: Dolphin Stadium
Weather: Cloudy, 29°C
Last time out, Brisbane Roar trashed Adelaide United 3-1 at Dolphin Stadium in Redcliffe, which marked their third consecutive victory of the campaign. Roar’s goals came in 37th, 45th and 78th minute from Jay O’Shea and twice via Dylan Wenzel-Halls.
Brisbane put their foot off the gas slightly towards the end of the game and leaked a consolation goal in 82nd, but at that point, it didn’t matter since they were three goals up with a W already in their pocket. It goes without saying Wenzel-Halls was the man of the match with his two goals which now puts him on four goals this season.
Brisbane ended the game with 47% ball possession and shot the ball 7/18. They also completed 83% of their passes, gave up 11 fouls and received three yellows.
Their next opponents, Melbourne Victory are not looking too sharp this season, having won only one game and played one stalemate in four tries. Their four points of the campaign e came against Perth Glory (2:1) and most recently against Western United (0:0).
We would go even so far to say Victory can count themselves lucky for securing a point last Saturday at AAMI Park, considering Western United had a couple of goals ruled out by VAR. Victory ended the game with 47% ball possession and shot the ball 4/15 which is not terrible. They also completed 82% of their passes, but gave up 16 fouls and received two yellows.
Brisbane have won both of their last two meetings with Victory in July (2:1) and in January (3:1), but it’s important to note that Victory won the previous four head-to-head bouts with 4:2, 5:0, 2:1 and 1:0. Regardless, those numbers don’t mean much considering Roar won this bout just over a month ago, whereas Victory’s last victory over Brisbane came in October 2019.
It’s very difficult to find arguments against Brisbane for this match. They have won three out of four games this season and are entering this match straight off a commanding 3:1 victory against Adelaide, which both proves Roar’s quality and serves as a morale booster to keep their streak alive.
Victory might field talented players, but they’re far too inconsistent for us to view them as a threat for the surging Roar. And if Roar’s win-streak is not enough to convince you, you just need to look at the form of Wenzel-Halls, who has already scored four goals this season, including one against Victory earlier in January.
Prediction: Brisbane Roar to win
