Neither team come into this upcoming clash with anything resembling good form. Brisbane Roar have lost their last three league outings while Perth Glory have lost their last four. Something will have to give on Thursday but with the way both teams are playing as of late, do not be surprised if it ends up in a draw.

February 2016 saw the Brisbane Roar travel to Perth and it was a journey that would have felt even longer on the way back. That is because although they scored three goals of their own in this entertaining encounter, they would go on to concede double that amount as the Glory hit them for six and in turn picked up maximum points.
