Prediction

Match Preview


The only team yet to win this season, can Wellington get off the mark when they come up against Brisbane on Saturday?

Phoenix haven’t been too bad this season and come into this clash on the back of a 1-1 draw with Melbourne Victory before last week’s bye, but they find themselves anchored to the bottom of the ladder and three points off their nearest rival.

Wellington last went eight games winless back in 2016 and will be desperate to avoid the same fate on Saturday. It may be early in the season, but another loss here would leave the Kiwi club with a huge mountain to climb if they are to replicate last season’s finals finish.



Meanwhile, Brisbane secured their first win of the season last week in stunning fashion, twice coming from two goals down to beat Melbourne City 4-3 in Redcliffe.

The Roar hadn’t scored a goal since Round 1 heading into that game, but Roy O’Donovan had a blinder, netting a second-half hat-trick to propel his side to victory and seventh spot on the ladder.

Depending on other results, a win over Wellington could fire Brisbane into the top six. The Roar haven’t won at Westpac since January 2017, but this is a great chance for them to snap that run. Robbie Fowler’s side should be confident on the back of last week, and if they reproduce that form, Brisbane will be too strong.
