Wellington Phoenix vs Perth Glory Preview and Prediction


Following a frantic month to conclude the regular season, the A-League finals commence this weekend, starting with an elimination showdown between third-placed Wellington and sixth-placed Perth.

Both teams have struggled since the A-Leagueโ€™s resumption, with Wellington winning just one of their six games, while Perth come into the finals on the back of 0-4 and 0-2 defeats to Melbourne Victory and Western United respectively.

Phoenix were also disappointing in their last game before the finals, going down 3-0 against the Newcastle Jets.

However, for me, Wellington were clearly the better side throughout the entire campaign, and if they can find their best form for this clash, they will be tough to beat.

Wellington can also draw confidence from their 2-1 win over Perth back on July 22, with Gary Hooper and Ulises Davila getting on the scoresheet and handing the Kiwi club the victory.

Hooper is out of this encounter, so it will fall on the shoulders of Davila and David Ball to create some spark in the final third.

Perth meanwhile have struggled without star striker Diego Castro and need Bruno Fornaroli to step up and produce his best if they are to make an impact in the finals.

With both teams out of sorts, I think we can expect a tight affair and low-scoring tussle. In saying that, Wellington are the better team for me and thereโ€™s some value in backing them home and into the preliminary finals.
