Foot Predictions shows the Australian A-League clash on Sunday between Brisbane Roar and Newcastle Jets, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Brisbane Roar entertain Newcastle Jets in the Australian A-League on Sunday morning, with the hosts trying to recover from a disappointing defeat last time.
Craig Deans The side, on the other hand, has been three games undefeated and intends to move up to the first half of the table this weekend.
The team at Suncorp Stadium made a good start to the season, adding 12 points in six initial games, placing in third place.
A shocking 2-0 loss at home to the new boys in the Macarthur division midweek was just Brisbane’s second loss of the season and left them behind league leader Central Coast Mariners by three points, albeit with a game love us.
Warren MoonThe team’s players made it to the playoffs in 2019-20, where they were defeated by Western United. Three points over the weekend could take Roar to the top of the table, and they will try to consolidate their status as one of the best teams in the country by doing just that.
Brisbane hasn’t been able to lift the league title since 2014, and a fourth A-League title would have been the goal earlier in the season.
A victory on Sunday would send a declaration of intent to its domestic rivals and renew the club’s confidence that a place in the Grand Final is within reach.
The Jets had a disastrous start to the 2020-21 campaign, losing their first four league games, including a 2-1 loss to the next opponent.
However, a victory over New Zealand’s Wellington Phoenix on January 24 transformed the club’s fortunes.
The deans have won seven points out of nine possible in the past few weeks to rise from the foot of the table, rising to seventh place in the league standings.
The McDonald Jones Stadium team narrowly missed the playoffs last season and will be looking to do even better this time.
A victory over the weekend would give them real hopes of doing just that, and would represent a turnaround from their difficulties in the opening games.

All news from the teams
Roar has no injury problems, but Moon can still make some changes to his starting XI after a 2-0 loss on Tuesday.
A man who is sure to start, however, is the star striker Dylan Wenzel-Halls. The 23-year-old has scored five goals and made two assists in his six league appearances this season and will be crucial to his team’s opportunities.
Newcastle Jets will run out Ben Kantaroxi, with the steering wheel excluded due to injury to it.
He is accompanied by a versatile defender John Koutroumbis since the 22 year old also remains on the treatment table.
Possible initial lineup of Brisbane Roar:
Young; Aldred, Gillesphey, Trewin; Brindell-South, Brown, O’Shea, Akbari; McDonald, Danzaki, Wenzel-Halls
Possible initial lineup for Newcastle Jets:
Duncan; O’Toole, Topor-Stanley, Jackson, Hoffman; Ugarkovic, Petratos, Thurgate; Najjarine, O’Donovan, Yuel
Probability: Brisbane Roar 3-1 Newcastle Jets
Although Brisbane lost last time, we imagine that they will recover from this surprising result and take their fifth victory of the season on Sunday. Moon’s cargoes must have a lot of quality for this side of Newcastle, and Roar could end the weekend at the top of the table.
