The Australian A-League returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Melbourne Victory welcome Brisbane Roar to the AAMI Park on Tuesday.

Anthony Popovic’s men are on a three-game winning streak and will seek to pick up a fourth consecutive A-League victory for the first time since 2018.

Melbourne Victory maintained their impressive run of results as they claimed a 3-0 victory over rivals Melbourne City on Saturday. They head into Tuesday’s game unbeaten in nine games. This fine form has seen Victory rise to third place in the A-League table, with 34 points from 20 games.

Meanwhile, Brisbane Roar failed to make it two wins from two as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Western Sydney Wanderers. That followed a 2-0 win over Newcastle Jets on April 3 that saw their three-game losing streak come to an end.

With 21 points from 20 games, the Roar are tenth in the standings, level on points with second-bottom Western Sydney Wanderers.
