A-League Men's Rd 2 - Melbourne City will face Brisbane Roar on Friday

Brisbane Roar will host Melbourne City at the Suncorp Stadium on Friday (October 14) in the second gameweek of the A-League.

The Roar endured a poor finish to theie previous campaign but have started the new one on a positive note, reaching the Australian Cup semifinals. They were held to a goalless draw by cup champions Macarthur FC in their league opener last weekend, where former Southampton man Charlie Austin made his A-League debut for the club. Brisbane are sixth in the standings with one point from one game.

Melbourne, meanwhile, are the holders after finishing top of the pile in the 2021-22 regular season. They beat Adelaide United 2-1 in the semifinals of the playoffs but fell short in the final, losing 2-0 to Western United.

The visitors exacted their revenge on Western United in their league opener last week, though. Melbourne beat the Truganina outfit 2-1 and will look for back-to-back wins.
