Melbourne Victory’s form has been patchy as of late and consequently Kevin Muscat and his players find themselves currently lying 5th in the A-League table. This weekend they play host to a Brisbane Roar side who have lost four of their last six league outings. It may be a close-run thing, but the signs do point to a home win at AAMI Park this Friday.

January 2017 conjured up an entertaining encounter between Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar with there being no fewer than five goals scored come full time. It looked as if the Melbourne based outfit would cruise to the win after taking a 3-0 lead, but the Roar did at least offer a fightback as they clawed their way back into the game with two unanswered goals. All this action came before the break and try as the visitors might to get something out of the game, they could not get that all important third and therefore travelled back to the Suncorp Stadium empty handed.
