PREDICTION
Perth have not been great on their travels and they do not have a great record against Brisbane. Both sides have struggled for consistency in recent weeks but the hosts have to be favoured and expect both teams to score if star striker Andy Keogh is passed fit to play for Perth.

MEMORABLE MEETING
February 2016 saw the two sides play out a fixture with no fewer than nine goals scored that afternoon, it would be Perth Glory who would pick up all three points in front of their own fans thanks to a 6-3 win.
