Show Preview

Brisbane Roar are still in search of their first win of the new season when they host Melbourne City. Join The Roar for live scores from the match and a blog of the game on Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium in Round 5 of the 2018-19 A-League season, starting from 7:50pm AEDT.

The Roar are off to something of a slow start in the new season having only three draws and a loss to their name so far, and sitting second from last on the table.

They opened their season with draws against the Central Coast Mariners and Wellington Phoenix before a 1-2 loss to league leaders Perth Glory, then another draw – 2-2 against the Western Sydney Wanderers – last week.

The game against the Wanderers was a sign of increased scoring power after fall behind early.

Even if it didn’t result in a win, the Roar will be hoping it’s the beginning of finding a good groove of form.

Melbourne City on the other hand famously started the season with a 2-1 win in the derby over Melbourne Victory, this was followed by a draw with the Mariners and an 0-3 loss to Sydney FC.

City got things back on track a 2-0 win over the Wellington Phoenix last week.

Prediction
It’s hard to argue that City have been in superior form and with Bruno Fornaroli getting into good touch last week, they look dangerous.

Melbourne City 2-1
