Sydney FC have not lost to Brisbane Roar in any of their last three A-League meetings (W1, D2).

Sydney FC sit top of the A-League having earned 16 points from a possible 21 available. They currently find themselves two points clear of Newcastle Jets in second.

Sydney FC have the best home record in the A-League after picking up 10 points from a possible 12. They have scored nine goals in front of their own fans - an average of 2.25 per game.

Bobo is Sydney FC’s top scorer in the A-League this season with five goals; he has contributed 45% of all their league goals during this campaign.

Sydney FC have the second meanest defence in the A-League, conceding just seven goals - an average of a goal against per game.

Brisbane Roar picked up their first win of the season last week with a 3-1 home win over Melbourne City.

Former Middlesbrough forward Massimo Maccarone and Greek teammate Avraam Papadopoulos share the mantle of joint top goalscorers for Brisbane Roar with three goals each. These two have been responsible for 66% of Brisbane’s A-League goals this season.

The Roar have conceded 11 goals this season after seven matches - an average of 1.57 goals against per game.

March 2015 would certainly provide an unforgettable encounter as the two sides played out a nine-goal thriller. It would be the home side Sydney FC who would gain the bragging rights that day thanks to their 5-4 win.
