M1 derby: Roar vs Gold Coast
In round 20 of the A-League the M1 derby between the Bribane Roar and Gold Coast United will take place.
Table topping Roar are 14 points ahead of Gold Coast but they have played three more matches.
But being a derby means that the match could be unpredictable and for the visitors three points will be vital to keep in touch with the top four teams.
The Gold Coast is currently six points ahead Melbourne Heart in fifth place and a win will increase that gap to nine points.
The Roar seem to be marching onto their first minor premiership and a place in Asian Champions League next season and a win against their near neighbours will help them get there quicker.
