Our prediction for this A League match:
A place in the A-League playoffs semis will be at stake when Brisbane Roar and Western United face each other at Bankwest Stadium (neutral location) on Sunday morning. Brisbane Roar finished the regular season in 4th place in the standings, only one point clear of their rivals. Warren Moon’s men are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, and you should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in five of their last six games.
Western United, on the other hand, were producing fine performances in the regular season finale before suffering a 3-1 loss to Melbourne City. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards as the two teams seem to be evenly matched ahead of the A-League quarter-final. Considering that three goals in total have been netted in the previous two meetings between Brisbane Roar and Western United, a close encounter is on the horizon.
