Melbourne Victory vs Wellington Phoenix Preview & Prediction

Melbourne Victory hold the longest unbeaten run of any side in the A-League as they prepare to face the enigmatic Wellington Phoenix on Friday night.

Victory are unbeaten in their last 13 games and have surged up to third spot on the ladder, one point behind Western United and four adrift of Melbourne City at the top.

Tony Popovic’s side need to win both their remaining games against Wellington and Sydney FC and hope Western and City suffer unlikely slip ups to have any chance of taking the minor premiership.

Regardless, Victory will want to keep their momentum going into the finals. They were on a two-match winning run after beating the Jets and Macarthur 2-1 and 4-1, but were held to a 1-1 draw with Brisbane on Anzac Day.

Meanwhile, Phoenix continue to run hot and cold – you don’t quite know which team you’re going to get any given game.

Wellington have won three and lost three from their last six outings, losing those games by 6-0, 5-0 and 4-0 scores, while they defeated second-placed Western 4-1 and edged battlers Perth and the Wanderers 1-0.

It doesn’t get much more unpredictable than that!

VERDICT:

Phoenix are always a chance, but their counter-attacking style leaves them open to heavy defeats, which we’ve seen recently.

Victory are disciplined and should be too classy at home, so we’ll back the hosts in an entertaining and open affair (Best Victory win H2H odds $1.54 with bet365.)
