How to watch Perth Glory vs Brisbane Roar A-League live and match preview
Both Brisbane Roar and Perth Glory are in desperate need of a win as they face off this week.
It's the two cellar dwellars facing off in the A-League this week, with both Perth and Brisbane languishing in 12th and 11th respectively. A late stoppage time goal from Daniel Stynes last week did at least secure the Glory a point. The Roar however come into this game on the back of a 3-0 loss to the Phoenix.
Roar coach Warren Moon would have to be frustrated after his side defeated Macarthur 3-1 just 3 days before the clash with Wellington.

Glory vs Roar kicks-off at 4:05pm AEDT on Sunday 20 February at University of Tasmania Stadium, Launceston. The two sides were originally scheduled to play back on 18 December, but it was postponed due to covid.

Perth Glory vs Brisbane Roar match preview
Both sides come into this as two of the worst goal scoring teams in the competition. Perth are currently the only team in the A-League averaging less than a goal per game with just 7 goals in 8 fixtures. While the Roar only fair slightly better with 11 goals from 11 games, but do have scored 4 in their last 2 outings.
Where there is a stark difference though is on the defensive side. Just like their attack Perth have only conceded 7 goals in 8 matches. The Roar however have conceded 16 in 11 fixtures.
Despite not being able to find the back of the net as frequently as some teams, the Roar's Jay O'Shea has notched up 3 assists so far this season. That ties O'Shea for 6th in assists this season. Meanwhile for Perth, while they don't have anyone setting them up Bruno Fornaroli is still prolific having netted 3 goals in the 7 games he's played.
With both clubs below their best both O'Shea and Fornaroli are likely to be the key men who can influence the score on Sunday.
Thanks to having Fornaroli up front and the Roar's leaky defence we're leaning towards a 2-1 Glory win.
