Brisbane Roar vs Western Sydney Wanderers Predictions 


Two of the more defensive outfits go head-to-head in the A-League on Saturday. Brisbane have failed to recapture that attacking flair from earlier in the season, while the Wanderers continue to grind out results away from home. 

I’m backing under 2.5 goals and a draw.

  • Brisbane Roar have drawn 4 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Brisbane Roar have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches (A-League).
  • Brisbane Roar are unbeaten in 5 of their last 6 against Western Sydney (A-League).
  • Western Sydney are unbeaten in 3 of their last 4 matches (A-League)
  • Western Sydney are unbeaten in 6 of their last 7 away matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Western Sydney have an 11-10 advantage in the head-to-head with eight draws in 29 encounters. 

Their last meeting saw Brisbane record a 3-1 win. Scott McDonald netted a brace while midfielder Jay O’Shea slotted a penalty to seal the result.

Brisbane Roar Form


While Brisbane are winless in their last seven matches, they have walked away with a draw from four of those.

The Roar managed to hold reigning champions Sydney FC to a 1-1 draw at home with forward Dylan Wenzel-Halls scoring and goalkeeper Jamie Young making several crucial saves. 

A 1-0 loss away to Western United followed, before Brisbane shared the points with Wellington in another 1-1 draw. Forward Golgol Mebrahtu’s 86th minute equaliser ensured Brisbane would snatch a point after Wellington took the lead just before the break.

Brisbane Roar Injuries & Team News


Forward Scott McDonald is Brisbane’s only notable absentee. The 37-year-old will spend another week on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Western Sydney Wanderers Form


It appears Western Sydney have regained their impressive form from earlier in the season.

A late goal from forward Kwame Yeboah helped the Wanderers to a 4-3 win over Wellington. Captain Mitchell Duke scored a contender for goal of the season with his volley from distance, while ex-Cardiff midfielder Jordon Mutch also contributed on the scoresheet. 

This was followed by a 3-0 win at home against Perth. Duke starred with a brace while ex-Melbourne Victory attacker James Troisi scored his second goal for the club. 

Though this winning run would come to an abrupt end in the form of a 4-1 loss away to Melbourne City.

The Wanderers will once again be without veteran goalkeeper Vedran Janjetovic due to a shoulder injury.

Verdict

Both sides have defended well this season, with Brisbane’s problem being a lack of goals in recent weeks. The Wanderers have been very good on the road this season, I’m backing under 2.5 goals and a draw.
