Wellington sit bottom of the A-League table and they are yet to pick up a point on Australian soil this season. Brisbane are currently eighth in the table and although they are not in the best of form themselves they should have enough to make sure Wellingtonā€™s poor away form continues.

April 2017 served up a sensational game between the two sides at the Suncorp Stadium. With Wellington 3-1 up at half time it looked as if they would go back to New Zealand with all three points but the Roar fought back and completed a dramatic second half turnaround to win the game 4-3.
