Redlands United vs Brisbane Roar
@ Compass Grounds 1- 6:00PM- SUN 8 NOV
This Season/ Last RD- Redlands have won 5/21 games this season as they sit in a disappointing whipping spot, AKA last place. Brisbane have won 8/22, as they currently occupy 6th spot on the NPL QLD ladder. Redlands have also drawn twice and lost a BIG 13 encounters. As for the Roar, they’ve drawn 3 games and lost 11. The two sides are on 16 and 27 points respectively. Redlands have lost 4 of their past 5 clashes. With that sole one proving to be a victory. As for Brisbane, they’ve lost 3 of their past 5. There’s also a win and a draw in there as well. And finally, when it comes to scoring and conceding, there are some notable statistics in here. Redlands have scored just 26 and conceded a massive 63 so far this campaign. And as for the Brisbane Roar, they have scored 38 and conceded 36, with their numbers being pretty similar to one another.
Redlands latest affair was a tough 3-0 loss to Capalaba, at Compass Grounds 1. They leaked goals in the 19th, 55th and 89th minutes of the game, in what was a rough performance by them. All season long it’s been a struggle for them and they’ll try to bounce back against a Brisbane side. A side whom they have a small, but still legitimate chance of causing an upset over. Whilst for the Roar, at Ballinger Park, they went down 3-0 to the Knights. That was at the Croatian Sports Centre 1. They leaked goals in the 25th, 53rd and 83rd minutes of the game. Against Redlands who’ve been poor all season long, they’ll view this as an opportunity to post a big score-line right here.
Key Players- Redlands- Their entire team. Attacking-wise and defensively-wise, the entire cohesive unit of the team needs to step up together and sort their s**t out. If they can do that, then they can put in a whole-heartened performance this game. If not then …….
Brisbane- Cai Tipaldo. Mans got 13 goals for the Roar this campaign. If they smash them, which is a likely scenario to occur, then he’ll have a fine goal or two to his name. No doubt.
Betting Tip- back the Roar to win at $1.75 (Bet365)
Other Betting Tips- With Bet365 back all of Moreton Bay United at $1.72, Gold Coast Knights at $2.40, Brisbane Strikers at $2.25 and Olympic FC at $2.37 to win their respective fixtures.
