Tip Reasoning

  • Melbourne finished top of the A-League and won the play-offs last season.
  • Melbourne won each of the last six home H2Hs.
  • Brisbane lost three of their last four A-League away games, including a 3-2 defeat here.

Melbourne to get the new campaign off to a flyer

After winning their first ever title last season, Melbourne City return to A-League action with a fire in their collective bellies, ready to do it all over again. I am backing the home side to get their campaign off to a winning start here after their home form contributed in no small part to their title success last term. Indeed, Melbourne lost just twice in home league games last season (W10, D1) and that included a hard-fought 3-2 home H2H victory. In turn, that victory extended Melbourne’s run of home H2H wins to six consecutive clashes.

On the other hand we have Brisbane Roar, who lost just one more game than Melbourne last term though they often proved more bark than bite as they finished nine points behind the champions. However, the Roar are nothing if not consistent as they picked up 20 of their last 40 points on their travels, though achieving victory here in Melbourne is a much tougher challenge than your run of the mill A-League side. Furthermore, Warren Moon’s men failed to win six of their last nine league games.

In conclusion, I am predicting Brisbane’s tough patch to continue, though they could sneak a goal past Melbourne here just as they did in two of their last three defeats here.
