Women’s Match Preview: Gearing Up For Round One

Women’s Match Preview:  Gearing Up For Round One

Melbourne Victory gearing up for a blockbuster season opener as we take on Brisbane Roar in Round One of the 2023/24 Liberty A-League.

Jeff Hopkins’ side will look to kickstart the new campaign in style in what is expected to be a packed-out home opener at The Home of the Matildas on Sunday.

Key Players to Watch:

  1. Lydia Williams: The most capped Matildas goalkeeper makes her return home and is set to bring invaluable experience in our push for the title.
  2. Kurea Okino: The leading goalscorer and Golden Medal winner in the NPLW Victoria will look to recreate her form at the next level and create problems for defences throughout the league.
  3. Emma Checker: Another Matilda returning home providing leadership and experience as we try and go one step further than last season.

Recent history against the Roar

It’s all tied against Brisbane in the head-to-head with both teams recording three wins each and four draws.
