Reason For Brisbane Roar vs Adelaide United Betting Tips

Brisbane Roar have seen big changes throughout the off-season, but they didn’t get off to the best start last weekend as they opened the new Hyundai A-League campaign with a 2-0 loss away to Melbourne City. Their strengths have never been on the road though, and back at the Suncorp Stadium they will be expecting to put in a much improved performance on Friday.

There are some questions over Roar’s credentials this season though. Their dominant forward line has been dismantled over the summer, with mainstay attacker Broich retiring in the summer, just as they were coming to terms with the mid-season departure of Dimitri Petratos. A trio of youngsters in Maclaren, Oar, and Borrello have all departed for European soil too, leaving Brett Holman alone to rebuild a forward line around him.

Brisbane’s incoming players certainly have the experience to succeed though. Massimo Maccarone may be 38 years of age but he’s been plying his trade in Serie A for years now, and the likes of Corey Gameiro, Eric Bautheac, and Fahid Ben Khalfallah are promising acquisitions.

A lot of eyes will be on the potential of Petros Skapetis though. The summer trialist has netted six times in pre-season and showed some bright touches in his A-League debut last week, so backing him to find the back of the net again looks a good choice for our goalscorer predictions.

Adelaide United are a bit of an enigma if truth be told. They finished as shock A-League Premiers just two seasons ago but collapsed last season to finish 9th, scoring just 25 goals in the process. They did get off to a better start with a 1-1 draw against Wellington Phoenix last weekend, but until they can start to repay some of the disappointment of last season, there will always be question marks over them.

The visitors have brought in some strong players, with the proven quality in midfield of Isaias, joined by former Germany Under 21 player Daniel Adlung and former international players Johan Absalonsen and Karim Matmour. However, with goals at a premium last season, there will be a lot of eyes on Babe Diawara, who was resigned to the bench last weekend.

It may be the start of a new season but old habits die hard. Adelaide United won just one away game last season and lost eight of their other 12, whilst Brisbane Roar won seven of their 13 home games and lost just twice. This makes odds of 4/6 for a Brisbane Roar Draw No Bet look fantastic value for money, so we’re backing that along with a 2-1 correct score predictions.
