Roar faces Victory test
League leader Brisbane Roar will have their credentials tested when they play Melbourne Victory at Aami Park in round 13 of the A-League.
With Western Sydney having already surprisingly lost to the Wellington Phoenix in the first match of the round, there are huge gains to be made by either team in the event of a win.
Victory is currently third on the table and could narrow the gap to second placed Western Sydney Wanderers by one point with a win against the runaway leaders.
The Roar can increase its lead at the top to seven points and also increase the gap between itself and the hosts to a staggering eleven points.
