Perth Glory v Brisbane Roar A-League Match Preview and Predictions - Sixth spot at stake

Gary Emmerson 13 Apr 2018
  • Both sides realistically need a win to move into sixth place
  • Perth Glory have won four of their last five games at home
  • Brisbane Roar have not won in Perth for five seasons

Perth Glory and Brisbane Roar clash at nib Stadium on Saturday night knowing that sixth spot is at stake for the winner and a potential spot in the A-League finals.

Glory v Roar kicks off at 10.00pm AEST. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction


Match Preview 


It is a possible case of winner takes all when eighth placed Perth Glory take on seventh ranked Brisbane Roar in the final game of the regular season.

Both sides sit a point behind Western Sydney Wanderers, who occupy the last of the finals spots in sixth. A win for either Glory and Roar would move them into the top six and turn the pressure on the Wanderers ahead of their meeting with fifth placed Adelaide United on Sunday.

A draw could be good enough for Roar, who boast a goal difference of -8. Western Sydney also have the same goal difference but would be worse off should they lose - a scenario that would lead to Brisbane securing sixth spot.

Roar have been in good form prior to last week's disappointing defeat to the Wanderers, but they have struggled on road trips to Perth with no win at nib Stadium for five seasons.

Glory have been in equally eye-catching form and have an identical record to Roar over the last six games with four wins and a draw and that sets this one up to be a blockbuster.

Home advantage has been crucial to Perth this season and I expect nib Stadium to play host to another victory for Kenny Lowe's side with plenty of goals, and the pressure will all be on Western Sydney 24 hours later.

Stats
