BRB Vs NJ Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Newcastle’s resurgence comes across its biggest test today.
Clawing their way out on the trenches of the A-League 2019-20 with some tenacious performances, for Newcastle Jets, the last month in the showpiece league has been the side’s best period all campaign. From sitting right in the bottom of the league to now within an earshot of making it into the ensuing round, the fight and character shown by the outfit has been telling.
Undefeated in its last five clashes with the 3-0 win over Adelaide the last time around taking the side to three wins and two draws, Newcastle Jets have to be immensely hailed for their immense turnaround this season. From being treated as nothing else than pushovers, the side has punched above its weight to be in with an outside chance of moving into the quarter-finals.
However, their biggest test awaits them today when they go visiting Brisbane Roar on the day with the fourth placed opposition set to make for a dicey test for them. On a two match winning spree at the moment after putting down Central Cost 1-0 the last time around, Brisbane Roar moved one step closing between themselves and a direct spot in the semi-finals.
Although there is a colossal difference in the league between the two, the match is going to be way more closely contested than that. This will be a tie where either side will spare no expense in coming out with the three points with us envisioning Brisbane just about squirming their way to a win courtesy of the opposition’s paper thin defence.
