Brisbane to bounce back against Heart
Melbourne Heart captain Fred remains in doubt with a hamstring injury and could miss another round. Meanwhile, Jonatan Germano, Golgol Mehbratu and Vince Grella have to prove their fitness in order to be selected with Ben Garuccio and David Vrankovic on international duty with the Australian youth team.
Brisbane Roar’s Besart Berisha is set to miss with an abdominal strain.
Doubtful: Jonatan Germano (fitness), Golgol Mehbratu (groin), Vince Grella (fitness), Fred (hamstring).
Injured/unavailable: Ben Garuccio (international duty), David Vrankovic (international duty).
Injured/unavailable: Besart Berisha (abdominal strain).
Melbourne Heart and Brisbane Roar sit at the bottom of the A-League table with a win and a draw each, which means this match is crucial for their respective seasons.
Heart went down to Western Sydney away from home last round, yet again struggling in the front third and missing captain Fred. With just four goals this season, Melbourne needs to step up in attack if it’s to get its season going.
The pressure is mounting on rookie coach John Aloisi and his club faces a stern test against the defending premiers eager to get back to winning ways.
For the second consecutive match Brisbane was unable to claw back a goal deficit at home against a tight defensive opponent. With three losses this season, there is also pressure on coach Rado Vidosic.
However, Brisbane has been playing better football than the Heart. Brisbane dominated possession last round against Adelaide United and was unlucky not to score and could find it easier to breakdown the weaker Heart defense.
Heart lacks the creativity and attacking threat of Brisbane, who despite being without striker Berisha still has the depth to score away from home. Given how important this match is, look for Brisbane’s big-game experience to shine through to claim an away win.
HEAD TO HEAD
Melbourne Heart won 2-1 in this corresponding fixture in Brisbane last season, also scoring two draws against the eventual champions. Brisbane has defeated Heart in three of their six previous matches, winning once in four matches played at the Heart’s home ground, AAMI Stadium.
