The 2015/16 A-League season kicks off with Western Sydney Wanderers hosting Brisbane Roar at Pirtek Stadium. Both sides are looking to put difficult campaigns behind them and go into the new season with a fresh look as they seek to reclaim their places at the top end of the table.
New marquee signing Federico Piovaccari will be looked upon to fire in the goals that were desperately lacking last season for the Wanderers. Creativity will come from experienced A-League duo Mitch Nicholls and Dario Vidosic, while Spaniards Andreu and Dimas Delgado will anchor the midfield.
Brisbane will go into the weekend with a number of key men unavailable. Shane Stefanutto, Henrique, Jean Carlos Solarzano and Luke De Vere are all injured, while skipper Matt McKay is on international duty.
With the optimism of a new look and a visiting Brisbane outfit missing some of their stars, the Wanderers have an ideal opportunity to win an opening round match for the first time in their history. Pre-purchased tickets include return travel via public transport to Pirtek Stadium.
