Melbourne City vs Wellington Phoenix Preview & Prediction

The Premiers Plate will be decided on the penultimate day of the A-League regular season as Melbourne City play host to Wellington Phoenix on Monday night.

City looked all but certain to finish the season with their second consecutive Premiers Plate, but they suffered a shock 2-0 upset loss to last-placed Perth Glory to throw their plans in disarray.

Bitter cross-town rivals Melbourne Victory have seized the opportunity with both hands and thumped Sydney FC 2-1 on Saturday night to leapfrog City on the ladder and take a two-point lead at the top.

That means City must defeat Phoenix in order to clinch the silverware – but given their poor showing against Perth and a failed Champions League campaign, the win certainly isn’t assured.

Wellington have been in good form themselves with four wins from their last six games, including a 2-1 victory over the Wanderers that secured them finals football last week.

It’s been another outstanding effort from Phoenix after they were again forced to play the bulk of their matches away from New Zealand.

However, they don’t have much to compete for here other than play spoiler to City’s party, with the side guaranteed to finish fifth or sixth.

VERDICT:

City haven’t been at their best lately, but with so much on the line, you get the feeling they will lift here.

They are heavy favourites for a reason and demolished Wellington 6-0 in their last meeting. Over 2.5 goals has landed in five of the last six A-League games between the sides and we’re backing that to continue on Monday night (Best City win & over 2.5 goals odds $1.75 with bet365.)
