Western United vs Wellington Phoenix Preview & Prediction
Western United don’t head into this elimination clash in the form that they would have desired. They gained just one point in their last three league matches, all of which were on the road. In fact, their last A-League victory came almost a month ago.
The man-mountain Leo Lacroix has been a big reason for John Aloisi’s success this season and was missed in the loss against Adelaide United. They will be a tricky team to beat at AAMI Park, a stadium where United has had a lot of success this season.
Meanwhile, the Wellington Phoenix have been in inconsistent form as of late, with a WL record in their last six matches. Most recently, they couldn’t prevent the reigning champions from winning the premier’s plate on the final day of the regular season.
Although Ufuk Talay’s side will be full of confidence that they will be able to defy the odds, considering they have won the previous four meetings in all competitions, including an undefeated streak in the last eight.
It will be a tough ask for the Phoenix on Saturday night considering the match is being played at AAMI Park. So, we’ll back the green and black to prevail. However, meetings between the two sides suggest otherwise.
Both teams have scored in the two meetings this calendar year. (Best BTTS – Yes odds: $1.61 with bet365).
