Melbourne City 13/8 to beat Brisbane Roar and both teams to score in Friday’s A-League contest
Market: Melbourne City win and both teams to score
Odds: 13/8 @ Bet 365
Looking to renfind some form at the back end of the season, Melbourne City will host a struggling Brisbane Roar on Friday morning.
Starting with the hosts, while Melbourne City have been far from at their best at the back end of the A-League campaign, the Blues will be glad to make a return to AAMI Park. In their 23 matches this season, they have won nine, drawn six and lost eight, scoring 28 and conceding 28 in return. With a points tally of 33, a victory on Friday morning would see them leapfrog Adelaide in the table. As for their recent run of form, while Melbourne have picked up just one win in their last seven outings, they are unbeaten in their last eight matches at AAMI Park. However, the Blues have failed to record a clean sheet in any of their last three matches on home soil.
As for the visitors, continuing with their worrying run of form at the back end of the campaign, Brisbane have spent the entire season battling it out at the foot of the table. In their 23 A-League matches this year, they have recorded just three wins, six draws and 14 defeats, scoring 31 and conceding 55 in return. Sat way down in ninth with a points tally of just 15, they also hold the second worse defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of form, while the Oranges have lost their last three matches on the bounce they have found the net in each of those defeats.
