Over 1.5 first half goals
First match of the Australian A-league on this season. Both of the teams did not have the best praparation matches under this and they had lots of problems in defensive gameplay. Hosts are still in my eyes lots of better team and i expect them to score.
These two teams is used to play very high goal line matches in the past. Last season they played 3 times and the scoreline was 2-3, 2-1 and 2-2. Especially on the first half the scoreline is used to be more than 1 goal.
Especially if we look up the pre-season results and halftime scoreline, it is easy to expect offensive gameplay to come at the first minutes of match. That is the reason of picking over 1.5 first half goals.
