Wellington Phoenix vs Western United Tips


Wellington return home for the first time this season when they host the out of form Western United. The Phoenix are unbeaten in seven and sit three points outside the top six. 

I’m backing BTTS and a Wellington win.

  • Wellington have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 7 matches (A-League).
  • Wellington have won 3 of their last 4 matches against Western United (A-League).
  • Western United have lost their last 4 matches (A-League).
  • Western United have lost their last 3 away matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Wellington have a 3-1 record against Western United in the head-to-head with one draw in five encounters. 

Their last meeting ended in a 1-1 draw in Tasmania. Phoenix striker Ben Waine opened the scoring in the seventh minute before Western winger Lachie Wales equalised just before the break.

Wellington Phoenix Form


Wellington are unbeaten in their last seven matches and have an eye on this season’s finals series. 

The Phoenix held the in-form Brisbane Roar to a goalless draw in extremely wet conditions away from home. 

A second goalless draw followed with Wellington sharing the points with Adelaide. The Phoenix were unable to capitalise after Adelaide’s Ryan Strain was sent off in the 79th minute, with Reds goalkeeper Joe Gauci making several impressive saves.

Wellington would then draw for a third consecutive match when they forced a point out of league leaders Melbourne City. Striker Tomer Hemed scored a brace as the Phoenix held on for a 2-2 draw away from home.

Wellington Phoenix Team News


Captain Ulises Davila will miss the match due to injury, as will defender Luke DeVere who hurt his knee three months ago.

Western United Form


The pressure continues to mount for Western United, who have lost their last four matches. 

The club suffered their greatest ever defeat when they went down 5-0 away to Western Sydney. The green-and-black conceded three second half goals in the tie. 

A 3-0 loss followed against Perth Glory, with Western once again heading into half time two goals down. 

An improved performance followed against Sydney in Ballarat. The Sky Blues escaped with a 1-0 win after being awarded a controversial penalty in the second half.

Western United Team News


Defender Dalibor Markovic is still out with an ankle injury. 

Veteran Andrew Durante announced his retirement for the end of the season after over 400 professional appearances.

Verdict

Wellington have their sights set on the top six and return home for the first time this season. Western United have lost their last four and while they have plenty of attacking options, have conceded heavily recently.
