Wellington Phoenix to Win

Offering a prediction on this match is a difficult task since both teams are in a similar type of form with three wins in the previous five A-League games. Furthermore, they are really close in the standings as well, with Western United having two points more than Wellington Phoenix. So, we’ve decided to focus on their recent h2h history and back Wellington to win, as they have done in the last three meetings between these two teams.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The Australian football league is known for an offensive style of play and many goals scored in most matches. The same goes for both Western United and Wellington Phoenix since we have seen 3.07 and 3.29 goals per match in games by these teams, respectively. Wellington has been particularly efficient in recent games since they’ve gone over 3.5 total goals in four of their last five league games.

Over 1.5 Total Goals at Half Time

If you want to bet on goals in this game, but you also want better odds than those offered on over 2.5 total goals, we suggest betting on over 1.5 total goals at half time. Wellington Phoenix is second in the league with an average of 1.41 goals per game at half time, while Western United averages 1.27 goals at half time per game. Also, we have seen two goals at half time in their last duel.

Western United vs Wellington Phoenix preview: A fight for the playoffs

These two teams are both looking to make a push for a spot in the playoffs, so a win in this match could turn out to be crucial at the end of the regular season. So, let’s take a look at these teams in more detail.

Western United

With two points ahead of their upcoming rivals, Western United is also two points behind the last playoff spot. The team from Melbourne has been pretty inconsistent this season, but there is still a long way to go. They’ve also been quite good lately, with four wins and two losses in their last six league matches. Another positive is the clean bill of health that Western United has, so we can expect them at full force on Thursday.

Wellington Phoenix

The team from New Zealand is not having a great season so far, although they still have a chance to make it to the post-season since they are only four points away from Western Sydney in 6th place. But they will have to improve on their form even more, although they are doing ok in recent games with three wins in the last five matches. Hudson-Wihongi, De Vere, and Piscopo are likely to miss the game due to injuries.
