  • Olympic have the second-best home record in the league, winning seven and drawing twice (NPL Queensland)
  • Queensland Lions sit eight points above their next opponents at the top (NPL Queensland)
  • The Lions have the best away record in the league, winning seven and drawing three times (NPL Queensland)

Head to Head


The Lions have won the last two games between the sides, including a 3-1 win on the road in November 2021. The Lions have looked far better than every other side in the league this season, and Olympic will have to do something special to win this one. 

Olympic FC Form 


The home side have not managed to win any of their last two matches, losing to Peninsula and Capalaba. Before this, the had hammered Moreton Bay 5-2, although it is worth noting that they have struggled for consistency. If Olympic can get ahead in the game then they will have a really chance of winning the match, but question marks remain over whether they can match the all-conquering Lions. 

Olympic boast the second-best home record in the league, but this will be the first time they have played the Lions at home this season. Victory here would be massive, but they have it all to do to contain the best team in the league. 

Queensland Lions Form 


The Lions have been brilliant this season. Two defeats in 19 matches have come alongside 14 wins and three draws, while they have scored a massive 67 goals, conceding only 26 times. With an eight point gap between themselves and Olympic in second, the Lions can afford to drop points, but such is the quality of this team, we believe they will want to end the season with an ever bigger lead. 

Their ability to score goals and keep them out of their own net means they are incredibly tough to beat. Incredibly, their away record is actually better than their home record. Seven wins and three draws in 10 matches shows they are unbeaten on the road, while they have won their last three away games on the bounce.

Verdict

Both sides are incredibly close in the betting, with some bookies making Olympic the favourites, while others favour the Lions. We are backing the away side in this one, with their away record speaking for itself. While we do not believe they will have it easy, we are predicting a 15th win of the season for the Lions.
