Venue: AAMI Park (56347 seats)

It's the second try for points this league season as Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar bump heads at AAMI Park.

These are hustling days for the team playing at home, as they played only four days ago in the Ffa Cup. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at Perth Glory.

These teams have little in common geographically as Brisbane Roar have to travel 1600 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

Melbourne Victory form and stats

The previous season, Melbourne Victory's league stats were 5 wins, 4 draws and 17 losses, leading to 12th spot in the A-League. Over these 26 matches they scored 31 goals and gave away 60. Playing as the home team in the previous season Melbourne Victory produced 3-2-8 (win-draw-lost) with 17 goals and 30 conceded.

The home team returns to AAMI Park after being equal after 90 minutes with Perth Glory (after extra-time, 3-4 on penalties) (placed 6th) on their last time out; the Ffa Cup game ended 1-1.

In the game before, an away victory in the A-League match versus Western United with a 1-0 scoreline.

This is expected to be a close game, with Melbourne Victory perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Melbourne as a small favourite), we find 14 games. Melbourne Victory has won five of these, drawn two and lost seven.

Brisbane Roar form and stats

Let's have a look at how Brisbane Roar performed last season in the A-League: They landed a 4th position in the league table after playing out 11 victories, 7 draws and 8 defeats. In total they scored 36 and conceded 28 goals in these matches. The numbers for away games only are: Won 6 - drew 2 and lost 5 with 19/16 goals scored/conceded. The visitors' first away game in the A-League ended in defeat. Last season Brisbane Roar had these away match statistics: Played 13; won 6, drew 2 and lost 5.

Brisbane lost away at Melbourne City (1-2) in their previous game and are perhaps starting to feel homesick. Jay O'Shea got a match rating of 7.84 in that game, top player of the team. O'Shea served one assist, hit three key passes and had 65 successful passes (of 79 total).

Preceding that game was the away Ffa Cup victory against Queensland Lions with the score of 4-0.

The A-League is the top level of the Australian football league system. Seasons run from October to May.

The league winner is called the “premier” while the playoff winner is the “champion”. There is no set system for relegation, unlike most leagues in the world.
