Reason For Wellington Phoenix vs Western United Predictions

  • Wellington Phoenix have won three of their last five but have lost their other two games in recent weeks.
  • Western United have dropped out of the top six after losing three of their last five.
  • Wellington are unbeaten in seven at home, winning six of those and scoring 14 goals.
  • Western United have only won one of their last five games away from home.

Can Wellington Phoenix keep their excellent home form going?

Wellington Phoenix have been the overachievers of the A-League season so far, currently sitting in fifth place after many thought they’d struggle to compete for finals series football. They sit only three points off of second place though in what looks to be a very tight race for the sides chasing Sydney FC at the top.

Wellington have scored 25 goals this season, at a rate of 1.47 goals per game and this figure doesn’t change much over their recent games, consistently hovering around that mark. The same can be said about their defensive output too with their season average of 1.29 goals conceded per game, almost matching their recent numbers of 1.20.

Are Western United able to cut the gap to sixth place?

Western United looked in a good position a few weeks ago, sitting comfortably in the top six and being in with a great chance of qualifying for the finals series in their inaugural season. Recently though they’ve lost all form, picking up just four points from a possible 15 and dropping out of the all important top six.

Western United have identical offensive and defensive stats this season, both scoring and conceding 23 goals, an average of 1.35 goals per game. Despite their poor form, they’ve actually been able to increase their goal numbers over the past five weeks to 1.6 goals scored per game. But, once again, their defensive numbers match their offensive with the team scoring and conceding 8 goals in their last five games.

Who wins the battle of Westpac Stadium?

Wellington Phoenix carry a little bit more form into this match and with the long trip east for Western United also being a factor, we think Phoenix have the edge on this match. With that in mind, we’re backing Wellington to come away with all three points in a vital match when it comes to the top six places.

There shouldn’t be too many goals within this game with both sides struggling for form a little in recent weeks. Western United haven’t scored in their last two matches however and look a little devoid of confidence. As a result of that we’re backing Wellington Phoenix to be a little comfortable in their win and pick up a 2-0 victory.
