Western Sydney Wanderers v Brisbane Roar: match preview

Western Sydney Wanderers’ sensational start to the Hyundai A-League 2019/20 Season goes on the line again on Saturday with the visit of Brisbane Roar.

The Wanderers are the last team with a 100% record after their gripping 1-0 win over local rivals Sydney FC in Round 3.

Fans of the Red and Black are beginning to dream big for their side’s title hopes this season and Markus Babbel’s troops can make another statement of intent at Bankwest Stadium.

Roar are still searching for their first win of the campaign after their narrow 1-0 loss to Melbourne Victory last time out.

Robbie Fowler has certainly instilled a hard edge to his Roar side but they’ll need to find their groove in the front third to have any hope of ending the Wanderers’ winning run.
