Ins & Outs - Brisbane Roar v Melbourne Victory
Brisbane Roar will play their first game of the Westfield W-League 2019/20 Season when they host Melbourne Victory at Dolphin Stadium in Redcliffe on Thursday night.
An opening round bye meant Jake Goodship's side have had an extra week to prepare for their clash against the defending premiers and they'll be keen to make a strong start to the campaign.
Victory began their premiership defence with a disappointing 3-0 loss to Sydney FC on Sunday and won't want to begin the season with back-to-back defeats.
Check out all the team news for Thursday's clash - which can be seen live on Fox Sports - below.
