Brisbane Roar host Western United in an A-League fixture at the Moreton Daily Stadium. Both teams are vying for a place in the final series playoff but Western United have been poor on the road and should find things difficult against Brisbane.

Goalkeeper Jamie Young was the hero as Brisbane Roar played out a 0-0 draw against Wellington Phoenix last time out in the A-League. He made a string of fine saves late in the contest to ensure Brisbane earned a share of the spoils.

A win would have taken Brisbane into the final series playoff but as it stands, they sit just outside the top six. They are one point behind sixth place Western United and could leapfrog their opponents with a win on Wednesday.

Warren Moon’s men have been in good form lately with three wins from their last four matches. However, they often struggle to keep things tight at the back and have conceded in nine of their last 11 home matches.

Western United also played out a 0-0 draw against Adelaide United in their previous A-League fixture. They played much of the contest with 10 men following Victor Sanchez’s sending off and put up a resilient defensive display to earn the point.

United have been erratic in recent weeks and travel to the Moreton Daily Stadium with just two wins in their last five matches. They are sixth on the table and will need to find some consistency to hold on to their spot in the final series playoff.

Mark Rudan will be worried about his team’s form on the road having claimed just one win in their last five away matches. They lost 2-0 to Sydney FC while a 3-2 defeat against Wellington Phoenix is also among their results in that run.

How the bookies view it

Brisbane Roar go into Wednesday’s match as favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 13/10 by Unibet. BetVictor is offering 2/1 for a victory for Western United while a draw is set at odds of 13/5 by betway.

Western United’s poor away form means I am backing Brisbane to claim the win here.

Head to head

Western United have a 3-1 advantage from four previous matches against Brisbane Roar. They claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture in March.

Players to watch

Dylan Wenzel-Halls remains the top scorer for Brisbane Roar and will be the one to watch on Wednesday. The striker is due a goal and could be worth a punt in the anytime goalscorer market at 7/5 with bet365.

Bersat Berisha also has seven goals this season and will be the one to watch for Western United. Bet365 has the striker at 21/20 in the anytime goalscorer market.

Anything else catch the eye?

With both team boasting quality in attack, a punt in the goals market could provide some rewards. Over 2.5 goals is priced at 13/17 by Sport Nation while Over 3.5 goals is valued at 15/8 by BetVictor.

The second half is also expected to be the highest scoring half at 15/13 with Red Zone.
