Melbourne Victory, who are 13/5 with bookmaker to defeat Brisbane Roar this weekend, were frightened when watching the league leaders thrash Adelaide United 7-1 last weekend.
In a recent interview, Victory skipper Adrian Leijer said: “They were, yeah, quite scary. We were in Wellington watching the game and I suppose we started thinking about next week already.”
Victory were finally able to get their first win of the season against Wellington Phoenix last weekend and Leijer revealed that everyone at the club has since been trying to mastermind a game plan to defeat the Roar.
Talking about Saturday’s crucial match, he added: “Maybe this week there’s a little bit less pressure on us because we’re probably not expected to win. But we’ll take this in our stride and hopefully use that to our advantage.”
