Talking Points Preview: Brisbane Roar Double Header

We’re just hours away from a 2020/21 season that’ll be 3.8% 2020, 96.2% 2021 and it goes without saying that we’ve never had a campaign anything like what we’re about to experience as fans.

In what is a welcomed move by many, Australia’s premier men’s and women’s campaigns will kick off together, with Melbourne City’s senior sides set to get things underway in a double-header against Brisbane Roar on Tuesday evening.

Nathaniel Atkinson will be the only player missing for City’s A-League side, staying in Melbourne to continue his recovery from a hamstring injury, whilst Sofia Sakalis (ACL – will return later in season), Chelsea Blissett (ACL – out for season) and Alex Chidiac (quarantine) will miss for the W-League side.
