In the next match of the Australian championship, Melbourne City will host Brisbane Roar. Will the leader continue to strengthen his position?
"Melbourne City" so confidently leads the standings of the Australian A-League, which surprises, perhaps, itself. The advantage is really impressive: now the team has 38 points scored and 19 matches, and Adelaide United, which is behind, has 32 and 20 matches. In the previous thirteen games, Melbourne City had lost only once, and had drawn twice and won ten times.
Things are gradually getting better for Brisbane ,which defeated Western United 2-1 in the previous match and entered the playoff zone, sitting on the sixth line. Despite such a low place in the table, it is Brisbane Roar that can be considered one of the main competitors of Melbourne City, since the Roar has played only 18 matches, and if they win the next two, they will gain 36 points and rise to the second position.
Statistics and figures:
- Melbourne City have lost one game out of thirteen;
- Brisbane Roar have been unbeaten for seven games, with four wins and three draws;
- Melbourne City won the previous two head-to-head matches.
Both teams gained momentum and came out, if not at the peak of form, then something like that. I believe that the match will be productive, because Melbourne City and Brisbane Roar know how to score, love and practice.
