Macarthur 11/10 to beat Brisbane Roar in Friday’s A-League showdown
Market: Macarthur win
Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on what has been a real purple patch of late, Macarthur will host a struggling Brisbane Roar on Friday morning.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a hugely impressive run of form, the A-League’s latest outfit still have their sights set on a title charge. In their opening 15 matchups so far this season, they have recorded eight wins, a pair of draws and five defeats, scoring 19 and conceding 19 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 26 and knowing that can break into the AFC Champions League spots this week, they also find themselves sat just four points adrift of top spot. As for their recent run of results, last seen collecting a 2-0 win against former champions Perth Glory, Macarthur have won each of their last three A-League contests on the spin by an aggregate score of 5-1. More impressive, Friday’s hosts have also collected 10 points from their last four matchups on home soil, including three wins on the bounce.
As for the visitors, still struggling to find much stability of late, Brisbane Roar really have the feel of a club who is seeking a much-needed boost. In their opening 13 A-League contests so far this season, they have recorded four wins, five draws and four defeats, scoring 17 and conceding 15 in return. Along with opening this weekend’s fixtures sat eight points adrift of finding a route into the top-half of the table, it should be noted that The Oranges hold the third-worst attacking tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, Brisbane have failed to win any of their last eight straight A-League matchups, a run that stems back to the start of February. Also without a win in their last four fixtures on the road and suffering a 2-0 loss when they faced off against Friday’s hosts earlier in the campaign, we’re backing a similar outcome this week.
