Melbourne City vs Wellington Phoenix Preview & Prediction

Runaway competition leaders Melbourne City look to continue their fantastic form when they square off against Wellington Phoenix on Sunday.

City have opened up an 11-point lead at the top of the ladder courtesy of four consecutive wins, including a last-start 4-1 crushing of Adelaide United on Thursday night.

Jamie Maclaren scored another brace to take his season tally to a staggering 24 goals from 19 games.

City have now scored a whopping 52 goals this season, while they’ve only conceded 24. It’s no surprise that they are top of the table with daylight second.

Scoring at least three goals in their last four wins, City will look to keep their momentum rolling into this clash with Wellington.

Phoenix have improved considerably from the start of the season and head into this encounter undefeated in eight of their last 10 games – although one of those losses was against City.

Wellington have failed to score in their last two matches, drawing 0-0 against both Brisbane and Adelaide. They are four points off the top six and need to go on a winning run soon in order to make up some ground.

However, it’s unlikely to come against City. The A-League leaders are on fire at the moment and should be able to continue their irresistible form on Sunday (City to win & over 2.5 goals best odds $1.80 with TAB).
