5 things to look forward to: City v Brisbane


Melbourne City FC return to AAMI Park for their final match of the regular season when they host Brisbane Roar on Sunday. Ahead of the clash, we take a look at the five things we’re looking forward to. 


Premiers Plate presentation

After securing the Premiership with a 0-4 win over Western Sydney Wanderers at Marconi Stadium last Thursday night, Melbourne City will return home for the first time since being crowned premiers. 

Following City’s final match of the regular season against Brisbane, there will be a plate presentation for City fans and players alike to celebrate the team’s tremendous achievement and their second Premiership for the Club. 

Watt a start! 

Ally Watt has wasted no time settling in to life in Melbourne. 

The speedy youngster has made two appearances off the bench since her arrival, making an immediate impact in City blue. 

Following her debut in the Melbourne Derby, Watt scored her first professional goal after she capped off an intelligent team combination with a typical strikers-instinct finish against the Wanderers last Thursday. 

The promising star is beaming with confidence and City fans will be excited to see her on our home deck for the first time this weekend. 


Head Coach Rado Vidosic and his team will have the opportunity to create history and become the competition’s invincibles when they head into this Sunday’s encounter. 

With one match of the regular season remaining, City remain undefeated. After drawing their Round 1 encounter, City have gone on a phenomenal run, claiming 10 straight wins on their way to securing the 2019/20 Premiership. 

Minutes away from breaking their own record set in the Club’s inaugural season, City will be eager to break the league’s record for consecutive minutes without conceding on their way to achieving an undefeated regular season. 

Best defence is attack 

City has built their game and their incredible run of form off the back of defending from the first line of attack. Wherever the ball is lost, City will press hard and do everything in their power to win it back as fast as possible. 

From attackers to defenders, every player defends for the team, which is one of the sides greatest strengths. 

Strength in defence also allows City’s attackers to press forwards with confidence and back their own individual abilities and creativity in the attacking third. 

Final Preparations 

City’s clash with Brisbane will be their final hit out before the upcoming finals series. 

With details to be confirmed, City booked a home semi final after clinching the premiership last week. 

With up to nine players jetting off on international duty ahead of the finals series, Sunday’s clash becomes all the more important in the lead up to the knockout stage of the competition.
