Adelaide United vs Wellington Phoenix Preview & Prediction

Adelaide United attempt to return to the winners circle when they play host to a resurgent Wellington Phoenix outfit on Friday night in the A-League.

Adelaide have been in great form for most of the season and are sitting pretty in fourth spot on the ladder, but they’ve only won one of their last six games and will be determined to take all three points in this clash as a result.

The Reds have been one of the most entertaining teams to watch all season, with both sides scoring in 11 of their last 12 games – however, their last outing resulted in a 0-0 stalemate at home against Western United.

In saying that, both sides had a man sent off and Western United were twice denied a goal by the VAR, so how it ended 0-0 is anyone’s guess!

Adelaide are unbeaten in their last six home games and have won four of them, so they will be confident of coming out on top here.

However, Wellington will certainly be no pushovers. The Phoenix have improved out of sight over the last month or so and come into this showdown unbeaten in their last five fixtures.

Wellington have won three of those games, prevailing 3-2 over Western United, 3-1 over Perth Glory and 2-1 over Adelaide in their last meeting just a couple of weeks ago.

Phoenix are now just two points off the top six, although they’ve played more games than most of the sides above them, so they need to keep winning in order to continue their finals push.

It’s shaping as an entertaining clash with both sides needing all three points. Wellington have been impressive recently, but Adelaide have been more consistent this season and their strong home form gives them the slight edge on Friday night.
