    Date: Friday, April 21
    Time: 7:50pm (AEST)
    Venue: Suncorp Stadium

    These two sides took part in a stunning semi-final last season. In front of a full house at Parramatta’s Pirtek Stadium, the Roar raced out to a 3-0 lead just 23 minutes in after Dimitri Petratos, Andreu and Jamie Maclaren all struck for the visitors.

    But the match was turned on its head soon after, with goals to Romeo Castelen and Brendon Šantalab making it 3-2 at half-time, before Castelen struck twice more in six minutes to complete the hat trick and put the Wanderers up 4-3. Jamie Maclaren notched a second in the 81st minute to level the scores and send the match to extra time, but Dario Vidošić ensured the home fans went happy with a 102nd-minute winner for the red and black.

    These two sides were very evenly matched in their three clashes this season, with their first two clashes resulting in 1-1 draws.

    Their third and final meeting in January saw someone finally break through, with the Roar claiming a dramatic 2-1 victory at home courtesy of a stoppage time winner from Brett Holman.
