Bitesize Prediction: Melbourne City vs Brisbane Roar – 12/03/23
Market: Melbourne City win
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
Looking to make an immediate return to winning ways in the early hours of Sunday morning, Melbourne City will welcome Brisbane to AAMI Park.
Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of a nightmare display on their travels last weekend, Melbourne City will be seeking an immediate response here. Eventually getting hit with an action-packed 4-2 defeat at the hands of Adelaide, Rado Vidosic’s men will be glad to make a return to home soil on Sunday. Still holding a six-point buffer at the top of the A-League table and tipped as a runaway pick to defend their domestic crown this season, the Blues have gained a reputation for their continued success at AAMI Park. In fact, on a run that is highlighted by a famous 6-1 romp against Macarthur on February 3rd, Melbourne have not suffered a single defeat in front of their own supporters since way back on August 17th. Likewise, Vidosic’s side have also collected 16 points from their last six A-League showdowns on home soil.
As for the visitors, making an immediate return to losing ways last weekend as they fell to a lively 3-2 loss away at Macarthur, Brisbane find themselves in the midst of yet another extended struggle. Still in a real battle to avoid lifting the wooden spoon this season, the Queensland-based outfit have bagged just a single win from any of their last nine domestic showdowns. With that rut highlighted by a 4-0 drumming at the hands of Newcastle on January 27th, Sunday’s guests should be bracing themselves for yet another real test here. It should also be noted, Brisbane hold a woeful record away at the defending A-League champions. In fact, on a run that stems all the way back to 2017, the Roar have lost each of their last seven straight trips to AAMI Park. Taking just one-point from their last five appearances away from the Suncorp Stadium, we’re backing a home victory here.
