Western Sydney Wanderers v Brisbane Roar A-League Match Preview and Predictions - Wanderers must avoid defeat

Gary Emmerson 5 Apr 2018
  • Brisbane Roar are unbeaten in their last four games
  • Western Sydney Wanderers have won just one of their last six
  • Both meetings this season ended in 2-0 wins for the away side

Western Sydney Wanderers head into Saturday's clash with finals rivals Brisbane Roar knowing they simply can't afford to lose at ANZ Stadium.


Wanderers v Roar kicks off at 5.35pm at ANZ Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction



Match Preview


It is sixth placed Brisbane Roar facing seventh placed Western Sydney Wanderers in a crucial contest between the finals rivals that could spell an end to top six hopes for the hosts.

The Wanderers trail Roar by two points and a defeat at ANZ Stadium would spell an end to Western Sydney's finals hopes. A point apiece would take things to the final weekend of the season in the battle for sixth spot.

Perth Glory also remain in the mix ahead of their Round 26 opener with Newcastle Jets on Friday night, but the significance of that game doesn't affect the Wanderers' need to avoid defeat to Brisbane.

Western Sydney have been in ordinary form of late, winning just one of their last six games. That came against bottom side Wellington Phoenix, but was heavy defeats to Melbourne City and Melbourne Victory in the last two weeks.

Roar have leapfrogged the Wanderers into sixth place courtesy of collecting 10 points from the last 12 in a four-game unbeaten run that includes defeat Premiers Plate winners Sydney FC on the road.

Both sides scored 2-0 wins away from home in the previous meetings this season and in current form I expect that to be repeating with Roar taking the three points back to Brisbane and sealing their spot in the finals.

Stats


  • Brisbane Roar are unbeaten in their last four games
