Brisbane striker Taggart has scored the same amount on his own as the whole Newcastle Jets team combined this season and needs just one goal to become the A-League’s most prolific scorer in Newcastle’s home ground. Look for him to continue his good run against this struggling Jets side.
Goals seem inevitable in this clash between Sydney and Wellington, as there tends to be plenty of action when these two meet. There have been over 3.5 goals in four of their last five meetings in the A-League, so there are likely to be plenty here.
Perth Glory have their second highest points total after six matches, just one behind the 15 they had after six matches in 2014-15. Melbourne City have really struggled for goals and Fornaroli's absence is not helping them, so Perth should be able to shut out Melbourne and comfortably win at home.
Melbourne Victory are looking to close the gap to Perth Glory at the top of the table, although Adelaide are just two points behind the Victory. Japan's Keisuke Honda has four goals and three assists already, and could add to that against an Adelaide defence missing starting centre-back Regan.
This is a game between the two leakiest defences in the A-League. Wanderers will want to bounce back after being humiliated last week and the Mariners have been playing well recently. It has been over a year since the Mariners last won away from home, so a score-draw is on the cards here.
Any other result than an away win seems unlikely here as unbeaten Perth Glory make the distance with four wins from four on the road. Wellington Phoenix have lost their last three A-League matches by two or more goals, and now they face the league's top-scorers.
Two points separate Melbourne City and Newcastle Jets in fifth and seventh respectively, with neither team's season really taking off as of yet. City have won four of their last five at home, but both teams tend to score when the Jets are involved and this could end a score draw.
Melbourne Victory appear to have their mojo back after three wins on the spin, and Western Sydney Wanderers visit Marvel Stadium in patchy form. Goals, however, are common in Melbourne, as there have been over two goals scored in Victory's last 11 A-League matches.
Central Coast Mariners have lost nine and drawn two of their 11 last A-League matches and conceded at least two goals in six of their last eight at home, while Sydney are unbeaten on the road in five. What is for certain however, is that neither team is shy of a goal or two.
These two have similar records at this stage, with both teams having only lost to league leaders Perth Glory. The man in form however is Roar's Adam Taggart, who has five goals in as many games, and as both teams have scored in seven of Adelaide's last eight at home, expect him to get one.
Two of the most exciting teams go head-to-head on Sunday with goals almost a certainty. Melbourne Victory are the joint hightest scorers in the league while Sydney FC are just one goal behind. Although they are playing away from home, Victory should be able to breach Syndey's defence.
This match on Sunday sees two teams face-off undergoing completely different fortunes. Perth have scored the most goals in the league whilst Central Coast have conceded the most. Therefore, Perth are worth backing for a handsome victory in this one.
As these are two teams who will be looking to kick on after mediocre starts to the season, there could be goals in this one. At home, Wellington will be expected to come out and try to win the game but with their leaky defence, Craig Goodwin could fill his boots after an excellent start this season.
Despite their winless start to the season, Saturday offers the perfect opportunity for Brisbane to get off the mark. On the back of Adam Taggart's good start to the season, Brisbane should be able to claim that elusive first win, although Bruno Fornaroli could keep Melbourne City in the game.
