Adelaide United vs Wellington Phoenix Prediction
Adelaide United recorded their fifth straight win of the season in their previous clash after breezed past Melbourne Victory with a 3-1 scorecard at home. The hosts were much the better side in that matchup and took twenty-three shots at goal, as opposed to their foes who managed just five.
It is also worth mentioning that the home side are on a four-match winning streak as of now. With twelve points in the bag, the hosts are now sitting third on the ladder, three points behind second-placed Sydney FC.
Meanwhile, Wellington Phoenix had their maiden taste of success last week after they took down Brisbane Roar with a narrow 2-1 scoreline. Be that as it may, the visitors are still stuck to the bottom of the ladder.
To make matters worse, the guests have admitted defeat in two of their last three outings, and have garnered no more than a point so far on the road as well.
In sharp contrast, Adelaide United have been picking up back to back wins in their previous three games on home soil, that too in all competitions. Taking into account that they are also unbeaten in their last six clashes with this foe here, Wellington Phoenix’s chances of salvaging even a point are certainly looking bleak.
Furthermore, half of the last twelve goals for Adelaide United so far have come from their matchups at Coopers Stadium. In addition, despite missing out on the win, Wellington Phoenix have bagged a consolation goal at the least in each of their outings this season.
Considering that three out of their previous four h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs, count on both teams to be keen on racking up the goals tally in this one.
