Hyundai A-League stats preview: Roar v City

Brisbane Roar will be looking to make it three straight wins when they play host to third-placed Melbourne City at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday night. 

And they'll be confident of continuing their impressive run of form having won six of the last eight matches against City at home (W6, D1, L1), including the last three. 

But it won't be an easy task against a City side which has gone five games undefeated, notching three wins in that span. 

Brisbane won the last encounter between the two teams back in November, with Avraam Papadopoulos' double helping them to a 3-1 win. 

Check out some of the other key stats and facts ahead of the final fixture of Round 19.
