This is the game between two in-form teams in A-League. Brisbane Roar are certainly amongst the teams with a puffed-up profile these days, all thanks to former Liverpool superstar Robbie Fowler who has done a marvellous job with the team. He has more than tripled the number of wins in just 11 games, guiding the team to fourth on the table, as well as making them a genuine contender for the ultimate thing. Roar have collected 10 points from the last five games, and have won the last two as well.
Newcastle Jets will also fancy their chances in this game, as they are also hot, last winning 0-3 at Adelaide United. Jets will also be motivated by the fact that they need to win this game to keep their post-season hopes alive. Jets are unbeaten in five games, winning three times in that period.
Things to keep in mind:
There are factors you must consider while making your champion football team on Dream11. Current run, home and away form must be taken into consideration. Then comes the players. You must have the idea about the players' form, or how they are performing, the minutes they are getting on the pitch, the players who are getting substituted too often, and the impact they're having on team's overall performance.
So what should be the approach here?
This really is a dicey game, for both the teams have momentum, but you have to give Roar advantage here because they are hosts and boasts a very good home record, losing just once in the last seven games at Robina Stadium. That said, Jets must be fresh after dismantling Adelaide United 0-3 on the road in what was their best away performance of the season. The visitors will be looking for a repeat here.

But as mentioned, Roar are at home and they hardly drop games in front of the home fans. So our approach is to go with at last three defenders from the home team, and one from the away side. The goalkeeper should be from jets as well.
Players who can make the difference:
Dimitri Petratos: Newcastle Jets' player of the season. He has been a phenom for the team. His creativity at part with his teammates, while his output in front of the goal makes him a very very dangerous player.
Scott McDonald: A worthy captain option in Dream11 Small League teams, certainly on current form. After going without a goal in his first six games for the club, he has scored three times in the last two games.
Brad Inman: Roar's Number-10 is also a very good option for captain in Dream11 Small League competitions. In fact, he is more of a threat, for he can set-up his teammates and can find the back of the net for himself as well. Goals: 04. Assists: 05.
Mirza Muratovic: Just 20, but Fowler certainly trusts his ability for he has been leading the attack for Roar. But he is not finishing games, that why he is not a captain option for the Dream11 Small league competition but is certainly worth the risk. Games: 11. Goals: 02. Assist: 01.
Roy O'Donovan: He is hot at the moment. The 34-year-old has scored three times in his first five games for the Jets. He should be on your team.
