Bringing you your stats fix, courtesy of proud partner Oxford, but in a new format.

Let’s look at the head to head stats between each club, and next in line is Brisbane Roar.

The Sky Blues and Roar (formerly Queensland Roar) first met in the Hyundai A-League in Round 5 of Season 2005/06, on September 23 2005. Played at Aussie Stadium (Allianz Stadium), Sydney FC triumphed 3-1 courtesy of a brace to Steve Corica, and a second half Terry McFlynn goal.

In total, the two clubs have met 46 times across the Hyundai A-League, Finals Series and FFA Cup, with Sydney FC winning 16 games, drawing 13 and losing 17 of those encounters.

The Sky Blues have scored 60 goals against the Roar, conceding 59 in the process, with the breakdown seeing 37 of those goals scored at home and the remainder away from home.

Kosta Barbarouses holds the record for most goals scored against the Roar, notching 10 goals in 21 appearances across all competitions, while fellow Sky Blue Adam Le Fondre has scored seven goals against the Queenslanders.


Barbarouses also leads the stats for assists against the Reds, having laid on four assists in his encounters against his former club.

Matches against the Roar are usually hard-fought affairs, with only a goal or two to separate the sides at the end of 90 minutes, however, on rare occasions, there have been some big scorelines too.

Sydney FC’s largest win against Brisbane Roar came this season in December 2019, as the Sky Blues’ record a 5-1 victory at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, with Adam Le Fondre bagging a hattrick on the night.
