Western Sydney Wanderers – Can Wanderers end a frustrating run with their first win in five?

It’s been a really frustrating spell for Western Sydney Wanderers and their head coach Carl Robinson. Their last win in the A-League came a month ago when defeating Perth Glory – a win which many thought would see them kick on and climb up the table. As it is, they have failed to win any of their next four games and have actually drawn their last three. What will be more annoying for Robinson is that his team have taken the lead in three of those four games.

Wanderers remain in the top six which – if they finish there at the end of the regular season – would see them reach the playoffs.

Robinson will be well aware of how competitive the race for the top six is, however, and tomorrow’s opponents are leading the charge of the teams who are currently on the outside looking in. The coach will know he has to get his group back to winning ways soon.

There’s no shortage of experience in this squad of players with the likes of Graeme Dorrans, Sean Cox, Jordan Mutch and Ziggy Gordon all familiar to audiences in the UK.

Brisbane Roar Preview – Will Brisbane build on their first win in nine to improve their hopes of the playoffs?

There will be few more relieved than Warren Moon as his Brisbane Roar team managed to end a run of eight games without a win when defeating Macarthur last time out. The 2-1 success was Brisbane’s first three points since the beginning of February and it gets them closer to the top six once again.

Roar are five points behind Wanderers but do have the significant advantage of three games in hand over their opponents, meaning a win here would be a real boost to their hopes of overtaking their rivals between now and the end of the season.

Brisbane have been more productive on their travels than at home to this point in the season and that’s down in large part to their defensive record. Despite being seventh in the league coming into this game, Moon’s team have the second best defence – only Sydney have conceded fewer.

If Brisbane can add a bit more threat going forward then there’s no doubt they have the foundations to kick on and improve, not only to get into the playoffs but also be a threat for the final series themselves.

Western Sydney Wanderers vs Brisbane Roar Betting Advice

Whatever happens in this one Brisbane will remain below Western Sydney in the table but a win for the visitors would change the complexion of things, particularly as they have three games in hand.

There was nothing to separate the two teams when they met earlier this month, a match ending 1-1. Due to how competitive the race for the top six is then a draw probably doesn’t suit either team but particularly the hosts.


Key Facts – Western Sydney Wanderers vs Brisbane Roar Betting Tip

  • Western Sydney have drawn more games than any other team in the division (seven draws in 17 games)
  • Brisbane Roar’s win away to Macarthur last week was their first success in nine league games
  • It was 1-1 when the teams last met, a game that took place just two weeks ago in Brisbane


Both teams to score is the selection in this game. Brisbane do have a good defensive record but they have conceded in five of their last six which is also the same for their opponents. The bet would have landed on each of those occasions and it can go in again here.
