Western United vs Brisbane Roar match information

Time: 13:00 (GMT+8) on February 16th

Venue: Mars Stadium

Competition: A-League 2020

Western United is having an acceptable inaugural season, gaining 21 points after 16 matches and settling at 7th position. However, the rookies have demonstrated a poor form in the last 6 ties with only one win and three defeats.

The return of their skipper Alessandro Diamanti from a foot injury in the 3-0 win over Central Coast Mariners will bring hope to Western United. The fans of the team in green and black will also count on their leading striker  Besart Berisha, who is ranking 3rd among the league’s top scorers with 11 goals, to get back to his stellar form.

On the contrary to their opponent’s recent bad results, Brisbane Roar is on a good streak with 4 triumphs in the last 6 matches. The former champions are ranking 6th with just one more point more than Western United.

Hardly suffered from any injury, Brisbane Roar will surely bring their best to recover from the 0-2 loss to Western United in their first meeting.

Considering the two clubs’ close margin on the table, it will most likely be an exciting clash but The Roar is the favorite to prevail based on their good form.
