Macarthur FC vs Wellington Phoenix Preview & Prediction

Wellington have put together a fantastic late-season surge, but they might have left their run a little too late as they prepare to face Macarthur in their final regular season clash on Friday night.

Phoenix bring a 10-game unbeaten run into this encounter, but their finals destiny remains out of their hands after they were held to a 2-2 draw with Perth in their last outing.

Currently in seventh spot on the ladder, Wellington must win this game against Macarthur and either hope Brisbane lose both of their remaining matches or Adelaide go down to the Wanderers on Thursday night.

Either way, the Phoenix should know by kick off on Friday night if they are a chance of qualifying for the finals.

Meanwhile, Macarthur have experienced a successful debut season in the A-League and will almost certainly be featuring in the finals.

Macarthur are sitting in fourth position on the ladder, four points clear of Wellington and six ahead of Perth, who must win both of their remaining matches to have a chance of breaking into the six.

In saying that, Macarthur do need to find some form ahead of the finals – they’ve only won three of their last 10 matches, with two of those coming against Melbourne Victory and the other against a woefully out-of-form Western United.

VERDICT:

Wellington are in better form and have been extremely impressive over the last couple of months, while Macarthur haven’t beaten a team currently in the top six since February 28.

It might not be enough to propel them into the top six depending on other results, but Phoenix are looking good to pull off the ‘upset’ on Friday night (Wellington win at $3.05 best odds with Ladbrokes).
