Semi Final preview: Brisbane Roar v Melbourne Victory

Brisbane Roar may be without Clare Polkinghorne and Emily Gielnik, but they're not without the confidence to overcome Melbourne Victory in a Semi Final clash at Lions Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Westfield Matildas pair departed Brisbane at the conclusion of the Westfield W-League regular season, leaving Jake Goodship without two of his best players heading into the Finals Series. 

Sunny Franco joined Brisbane's ranks from Newcastle Jets ahead of the post-season. The 23-year-old winger will add attacking spark to a Brisbane line-up hoping to beat Victory for the second time in 2020/21, after smashing Jeff Hopkins' team 6-0 in Round 5. That result followed a 0-0 draw between the teams in Round 2.

Victory come into the Semi Finals after a loss to Sydney FC - a result which handed the Sky Blues the Premiership at Victory's expense.

A win to the Victorian outfit over Brisbane would send them into the Grand Final, where another matchup with the Sky Blues potentially awaits should Sydney beat Canberra United on Monday, April 5.
