Brisbane Roar vs Newcastle Jets Match Preview
Brisbane Roar beat Western Sydney Wanderers (3-1) and Central Coast Mariners (1-0) over the past two outings and they host Newcastle Jets for their Matchday 27 clash on Friday as the series of home outings behind closed doors continues. They will hope to build on the performances and we still expect them in a great mood, promising a strong challenge.
Roar have seen a more unpredictable run on the road but still managed 14 points in last six outings at Cbus Super Stadium, beating Wellington Phoenix (1-0) and Adelaide United (2-1) earlier in 2020 while holding off Melbourne City (2-2) and Perth Glory (1-1) along the way.
Newcastle Jets, on the other hand, sit 9th with 21 points to their name after 20 games. However, they earned 11 of those in five matches since Carl Robinson took over in February and the visitors will now have high hopes they can show off as a reinvigorated side, desperate for points to close the six-point gap to top 6.
Jets beat Perth Glory (2-1) and Adelaide United (0-3) in their last two outings as ex-Brisbane man Roy O’Donovan found his form and bagged two of those goals. They will now surely be tough to outgun as well and we consequently expect an exciting contest for important points at Cbus Super Stadium.
We still feel Brisbane Road should have what it takes to secure the points and we’ll stick with them to do so at 6/5 with bet365. We’ve seen them in fine form in front of the home fans and we hope to see more of the same behind closed doors as well.
As said, both sides have enjoyed a great goalscoring form lately and with that in mind, we’re also backing a high-scoring occasion with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/7 with Paddy Power – which feels like a banker bet for those hoping to see a winner here.
