Adelaide United vs Wellington Phoenix: Predictions
Both teams want to go back to winning ways so 3 points is important for either side.
United have already beaten the Phoenix this season at home so they will be looking to replicate the same result for their fans so they can see consecutive home wins for the Reds.
The Phoenix were playing good football in the past month until their loss to Brisbane Roar last round. They need to find that form again if they want to reach finals at the end of the season.
If United can win this game, they can move away from bottom placed Central Coast Mariners.
A win for the Phoenix will see them jump back into the top 6.
It should be a close contest but with a good record in these matches and at home, Adelaide United should do enough to get the win against Wellington Phoenix in this fixture.
