On January 10, within the framework of the third round of the Australian League A, the match between Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory will take place at Suncorp Stadium. Will the guests have their first victory in the new season? Read about it in our forecast.
Brisbane Roar didn’t get off to a great start to the season, losing 0-1 at home against Melbourne City. It is clear that the opponents of Warren Moon’s charges were stronger, but there were chances for a draw, especially since the hosts had one more player on the field for more than twenty minutes.
But the second game turned out to be the best possible. Last week, today’s rivals had a face-to-face match with each other, in which Brisbane Roar turned out to be stronger. Now these guys are facing a difficult task – to repeat that success, but within their own walls.
“Melbourne Victory” had an advantage over its opponent for the reason that the players had at least some playing practice in December, but at the same time, almost one month had passed since the last match in the Champions League at that time.
However, this did not help the Grant Brebner team. If in the first half the game was still held on a collision course, then in its second half there was no intrigue. The vis-a-vis regularly created tension at the Melbourne goal, as a result of which 1: 1 on the scoreboard changed to 1: 3. Callum McManaman is the only goal scored by Victory. Should we expect revenge?
“Brisbane” has been losing to visitors at home for five meetings in a row;
Melbourne won only two away games last year.
02.01.21 Melbourne Victory Brisbane Roar 13

10/25/19 Brisbane Roar Melbourne Victory 0: 1
03/16/19 Melbourne Victory Brisbane Roar 2: 1
01/15/19 Brisbane Roar Melbourne Victory 0: 5
For a very long time, the hosts played zero for the last time, back on March 20. Since then, each opponent has hit their goal at least once. And given the fact that the guests will come to avenge the defeat a few days earlier, it is very likely that Victory will not remain on starvation rations.
Our forecast is that individual total of Melbourne Victory is over (1) goal with odds 1.76 from BC Winline.
