Preview: Western Sydney Wanderers v Brisbane Roar (semi finals)

after regular season Wester Sydney Wanderers was first (57pts), Brisbane Roar finished 5th (35pts)

hosts won all tree h2h games and they have tre important players back, roar has two players fit (which was doubtful)..

The Game:
Despite being up-and-down for most of the season, Brisbane aren’t about to give their title up without a fight and are just one game away from a third straight decider. Mike Mulvey has got his side firing at the right time, with last Sunday’s 2-1 win over Adelaide their third in a row. But if the Roar are to play for another championship they will need to knock off the in-form premiers.

Western Sydney are on a remarkable 12-game unbeaten run, have had the benefit of a week’s break and will play in front of their hostile and parochial home fans.

The busiest men at both clubs this week have been the medical staff with a host of key players from the respective sides racing the clock to be fit. Shinji Ono (groin), Aaron Mooy (knee) and Jerome Polenz (calf) all missed the title-winning clash with Newcastle a fortnight ago but are expected to line-up on Friday night.

Brisbane defender Jack Hingert is out for the season with an ankle injury picked up against Adelaide but skipper Thomas Broich (Achilles) and midfielder Luke Brattan (calf) are likely to play despite failing to finish the match against the Reds.

The big issue:
Wanderers – They took out the Premiers’ Plate in their debut season but there will be no second chances for Tony Popovic’s side from now on. This is sudden death football. While Brisbane have been there and done it over the last couple of years, for many of the Wanderers squad this will be a new experience. Just how they handle the pressure could determine if they move through to the decider.

Roar – Brisbane may have some momentum heading into this clash but the short turnaround and injury clouds over a couple of key players could prove pivotal. While the Wanderers will be fresh from a week off and had the opportunity to get a few of their stars over niggling injuries, the Roar head into this one just five days after a bruising win over Adelaide and that could take its toll late in this encounter.

Helsingborg palyed before 3 days Champions elague game with Celtic, loose 2-0 but still hope they can make mirracle and come into CL groups so rotations are important. Also they have some important missings: defenders Hanstveit (15/0), Edman (6/0), Atta (12/2), Wahlstedt (6/0) and probably Sadiku (18/0) + midfielders Bergholtz (5/0) and Lindstrom (14/0) all out.

Leuven – Anderlecht

Anderlecht loose very important CL game but they have one more chance, 2nd game and coach decide to rest some players:

Badeend: value on the side of leuven. 1.58 average for Anderlecht is just so wrong. I see OHL +1 already dropped from 2.00, a pitty. Since OHL is in the jupiler league they only lost 5 games at home. The atmosphere is always great, more spectators then clubs like Lokeren, Kortrijk, Zulte … that already play in the JPL for years. Goals is another option, in all those games at home they didnt score in only 2 games and only kept the 0 once. 

Selectie van Anderlecht voor de match tegen OHL:

Bedi, Bruno, Canesin Matos, De Sutter, Deschacht, Hawsawi, Iakovenko, Jovanovic, Juhasz, Kaminski, Kanu, Kljestan, Marecek, Molins, Odoi, Praet, Roef, Safari, Wasilewski

No Biglia, Proto, Kouyaté, Mbokani and Gille

On the other side Palmeiras in problems.
