Brisbane Roar Win

Brisbane have had the better season overall compared to Wellington, sitting 4 places and 12 points above the latter team. In terms of their most recent games vs each other, Brisbane didn’t lose in 4 of their last 5 ties vs Wellington, as well as being unbeaten in the last 3. Historically, the Roar have won over 50% of the 30+ games in which both teams have faced off, whilst Wellington have won less than 20%. Brisbane to take the points.  

Double Chance: Brisbane Roar or Draw

Both teams have won 3 of their last 5 games and come into the tie with some measure of consistency. However, Brisbane are in better form as they are unbeaten in 5 and won their last 3 consecutively. Also, the last two games between the sides ended in draws so that is certainly possible considering the recency. Roar are the more prestigious team, however, and as they’ve won more historically, Brisbane will most likely win this one.

Total Goals Over/Under: Under 3.5 goals

Games between Brisbane and Wellington have been cagey in recent times, with the last 5 games seeing less than 3 goals scored in each. This season, the Roar have scored 1.6 goals per game whilst Wellington have scored ~1.5 goals per game. There is certainly the potential for goals but as the last two games between both sides ended in 1-1 draws, I expect a tight game.

Brisbane Roar vs Wellington Phoenix Preview and Team News

Brisbane Roar

Centre-back Tom Aldred is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury, so will certainly miss this game. This is a big blow for Brisbane, as Aldred is in the team’s top 10 for league minutes played this season with 1000+. The Roar are managed by 38-year old coach Warren Moon. He has over 10 years of men’s coaching experience and has been in the job since July 2020.

Wellington Phoenix

No key players are missing for this game, but rotational options such as centre-back Luke DeVere and winger Rene Piscopo will be out due to injuries. Australian Ufuk Talay is at the helm of Wellington and has been since May 2019. This was his first senior role in management; his win percentage is currently 40.5% from over 35 games in charge.
