Hyundai A-League stats preview: Brisbane Roar v Sydney FC

Brisbane Roar will be desperate to turn their season around when they host league-leaders Sydney FC in Monday night football at Suncorp Stadium. 

It won't be easy against a red-hot Sky Blues outfit but Roar can take solace from their impressive record against Graham Arnold's men at home. 

Sydney FC have won just one of their last 15 games at Suncorp Stadium (D4 L10), averaging fewer than one goal per game in their history at the venue in the A-League (16 goals in 19 games).
