Matchweek 9 preview: Sydney FC v Brisbane Roar

Brisbane Roar will be determined to end a two-game winless run and rediscover their early season form against Sydney FC at Nestrata Jubilee Stadium on Saturday night.

After losing their first fixture of the new campaign Warren Moon's Roar outfit went on a four-game winning streak before faltering of late, losing to Macarthur FC in Matchweek 7 and playing out a 0-0 stalemate with Newcastle Jets in their last outing.

Brisbane sit in third on the A-League table despite the stagnation, ahead of the Sky Blues in fifth by three points leading into the Matchweek 9 clash.

Sydney FC have two games in hand over the Roar and the significant ascendancy throughout recent fixtures between the two sides, having won four and drawn one of their last six games against the Queenslanders.

Steve Corica will welcome Brazilian striker Bobô back into the fold in Matchweek 9. The A-League icon returned for his second stint in Sky Blue for the 2020/21 campaign and is in line to make his first appearance of the season against the Roar, intent on building on the 52 goals struck throughout his 71 previous appearances for Sydney FC.
