A man who has done so much for the A-League, Ange Postecoglou, will coach his last A-League match for some time and it is fitting his current side Melbourne Victory face his former side Brisbane Roar. Join us for live scores and commentary from 7.30pm AEDT.

Earlier in the week I wrote A testament to Ange Postecoglou prior to his Socceroos appointment and that Friday night might be his last game in charge of Melbourne.

Although it is Ange Postecoglou’s farewell match, there are still three points on offer in what will prove another important clash in season 2013/14.

As of Monday, Postecoglou will officially become the coach of the Socceroos, but he remains focused to the task at hand, and that is to help Victory notch their first win of the season.

“It doesn’t feel like a final game, it didn’t feel like a final training session,” Postecoglou said to the Herald Sun after his last training session with the team.

“It probably hit me on Monday when I … walked out there and I shouldn’t have been out there.

“It’s obviously been a big week, but I’ve really been conscious of making sure that everyone within here has been focused on Friday night’s game because it’s a big game for us.

“Training has been good, everyone’s ticking along well so I’m looking forward to it.”

Mike Mulvey spoke to the Courier Mail and was perplexed as to why Ange was coaching this match, but also didn’t stray too far away from the focus he and Brisbane Roar have heading into the match.

“Seriously, it’s just another game. It’s the third game of the season, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for us to test ourselves against the team everybody’s tipped to the champions,” he said.

“So we’ve got to go down to their backyard, and we’re going down there to try and win.”

Both sides have gotten off to very different starts to the season as Roar have won both of their fixtures, while Victory are yet to record their first win.

In what may be viewed as a positive for Melbourne Victory, Brisbane Roar have not won a match against Victory away from home since 2009/10 but on the flip side for Roar supporters, Victory have also not defeated the Roar since round six of 2010/11.

With it being Ange Postecoglou’s last match in charge we should be in for a good crowd but as always between these two teams, and a great contest as well.

Prediction: Melbourne Victory 3-3 Brisbane Roar
