    The Brisbane Roar return home after an opening round loss, and they will be host to Adelaide United who were good value for their opening Round 1 draw away from home. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage from 7:50pm (AEDT).

    Brisbane will be looking to put in a much more impressive performance at home than the one they offered on the first Friday night of season 2017/18. Melbourne City held the game on their terms, and Brisbane were always chasing the game.

    Adelaide on the other hand will be asking questions of the FFA about an opening two rounds that has seen them have to make two of their longest away trips back to back, with only a five day turnaround.

    Karim Matmour looked good in the first round, if unable to get on the scoresheet, so he will be hoping to get off the mark for his new club.

    The same will be the case for Massimo Maccarone, who gesticulated with the best of them in Round 1, but other than two minor shots on target, created little of note. You would think he is hoping that on the back of good home crowd support, he will receive better distribution than he got against Melbourne.

    John Aloisi should expect a very, very big response from his side. Undoubtedly, Aloisi will have advised Matt McKay (who is still searching for his 100th A League career win) and Ben Khalfallah during the week exactly what he demands in round 2, and they should be eager to deliver.

    Prediction
    The real question will be how well Adelaide back up from a first up trip to Wellington. If they can find a way to recover from a short turnaround from an overseas trip, they should trouble Brisbane.

    Meanwhile, the Roar, at home, eager to redeem themselves after round 1, could take advantage of a travel-weary side, with the likes of Khalfallah turning it on.

    While Adelaide have won three of their last five games against Brisbane, Brisbane have won three of the last five against Adelaide in Brisbane. Will history mean anything though?

    Brisbane 3-1.
