By the numbers: Glory v Roar

A month on since their last match, our girls are back for a crucial Westfield W-League clash against Perth Glory on Sunday.

The two teams split the form guide across the last three matches against one other with a win, loss and draw each.

We’ve run through the numbers & taken a look at the key stats that could determine Sunday’s clash in Perth.

Key period
Both sides score most of their goals in the 15 minutes to open the second half. However, the Roar are yet to concede in that period this season so either way, history will be put to the test this weekend.

The Glory are also yet to keep a clean sheet in the 2019/20 season.

Women


First on the board
If history is anything to go off, the team who scores first won’t walk away empty handed on Sunday.

Both sides haven’t lost this season after scoring the opener, while Perth are yet to win after going behind, having only drawn one from eight after conceding the opener.

American flare
Rylee Baisden has been instrumental in the Roar’s successes this season, with the American ranking fifth overall for assists and chances created.

Her fellow countrywoman Carson Pickett is also having an impact when taking the ball forward. The defender is in the top ten players in the league in passes completed in the opposition half with 276 passes at a success rate of 65.2%.

Better yet, we've just added another lethal American to our attack with Connecticut product Shea Connors in contention to make her debut.

Straight from the training ground
Perth are equal first across the league in scoring from the set piece after converting four times from penalties and corners this season.

The Roar don't quite match their opponents from set pieces, but have had more luck building up from open play with 11 of the squad's 14 goals coming from having the ball in motion.

Battle of the goalkeepers
Both Brisbane Roar goalkeeper Mackenzie Arnold and her opposite number Eliza Campbell share a near identical save percentage in the 2019/20 campaign.

Campbell has saved 70.8% of the shots that have been sent her way, while Arnold just about matches her at 70.7%.

The Roar do boast the best shooting accuracy percentage in the competition, with 56.9% of their shots finding their way to the target, while Perth find themselves at the opposite end of the scale.
