A-League Tips & Preview Elimination Finals

Melbourne City v Brisbane Roar – (Fri 7:50pm)
Brisbane got the better of Perth in the winner takes all battle last week but replicating that performance in Melbourne will not be easy. City on the other hand switched off late away to Wellington in what looked like an attempt to conserve energy for the finals. Fornaroli was on target for the 5th time in his last 6 games and shutting him down will be close to impossible for the Roar. He is a proven scorer and will provide the combination of Pepper and O’Toole nightmares. This does promise to be a very open encounter with the Roar having scored multiple goals in 7 of their last 9 away games. City have been relying on their defence in recent weeks but that will have to change. This will will be open and played at break neck speed.
Best Bet: Over 3.5 goals ($2.60)
Value Bet: Brisbane Over 1.5 goals ($3.10)

Melbourne Victory v Adelaide Utd – (Sun 6:00pm)
The Victory have been very difficult to break down over the last two months. They have won 5 of their last 7 A-League matches and their two losses have come via a 1-0 scoreline. They have conceded more than once in just one of those matches and have a dominant record against the Reds. Melbourne have won 4 of the last 6 meetings between the two clubs with multiple goals in all but one of those clashes. That being said, Adelaide have finally found their mojo on the offensive end. They have scored at least three time in 3 of their last 4 with Diawara being well supported by Absalonsen and Mileusnic. The Wolf believes that the Victory have a distinct edge in the centre of the park and it is where this one will be won. The Victory to control the tempo and limit the Reds opportunities in front of goal.
Best Bet: Melbourne Victory WIN ($1.95)
Value Bet: Teams To Score – Melbourne Victory Only ($3.40)
