Western Sydney Wanderers and the Wellington Phoenix

Two sides riding high in confidence clash when Wellington Phoenix and Western Sydney Wanderers meet at Westpac Stadium on Sunday.

Phoenix v Wanderers kicks off at 5.00pm AEST at Westpac Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on Fox Sports in Australia.

Prediction


Match Preview


Wellington Phoenix come into the game fresh on the back of last weekend's 8-2 demolition over Central Coast Mariners and strengthened their grip on a finals spot as a result.

Phoenix sit in fourth spot heading into Round 22 and can take a step closer to the finals when they host Western Sydney Wanderers.

The Wanderers won just one game during a troublesome first half of the season - that coming at Westpac Stadium in Round 3. But they have really found their feet in recent times.

Markus Babbel's Western Sydney side are unbeaten in their last four and clinging on to slim hopes of making the finals, although victory in Wellington will be needing if they are to continue that late surge.

Wanderers beat Brisbane Roar 4-1 in their last game to make it back-to-back away wins and they now go in search of three in a row on the road for the first time in more than three years.

But things won't be easy on Sunday with Phoenix having won four of their last five home games at Westpac. In their current form, though, Western Sydney can claim a point.

Western Sydney have lost just one of the last nine meetings between the sides, the most recent encounter in Sydney in January, and that good record against Phoenix can count. Only two of those have had under 2.5 goals so expect plenty of action in this one.
