Neither of these teams are firing on all cylinders right now but Brisbane remain a formidable opponent on home turf. The Roar have won three and drawn one of their last four at home to Victory and they have to be fancied here.

March 2016 would see the Brisbane Roar carry out an emphatic win over Melbourne Victory. In front of their own fans they would turn in a five star performance and a clean sheet to boot as they strolled to a 5-0 home success.
