Brisbane Roar vs Melbourne City match preview
Melbourne City have won 5 of the last 6 meetings between these 2 sides and have scored in 9 of the last 10 meetings.
Brisbane look to have improved their squad in the off-season coming off a low base. They were well-organised last week despite a scoreless draw.
This does look like another step up though for the Roar. Despite the fixture being on home turf, we think City will have too much firepower.
For Melbourne, it's a case of reducing the lapses in games that ultimately cost them a title last year.
This should be another step in the right direction for them.
