Melbourne Victory vs Wellington Phoenix Prediction
Melbourne Victory is right now stuck at the seventh spot in the league table with 4 points in the account of one win and draw each in the campaign. The previous loss at home against Western United impeded with Melbourne Victory’s chance to move into the top five spots.
Their only win in the contest so far is against Brisbane Roar. Also, the Victory has held the reins on the current table toppers, Melbourne City, in the opening home match.
In the meantime, the host will be having enough breathing space when hosting Wellington Phoenix. The visiting side is the worst-performing team in the league with zero points in their account. Even so, they have been facing the teams in the top 5 of the league table.
Although, they have scored only 4 goals in the 4 matches while conceding 8 in the process.
In their previous outing with Melbourne City, they opened and closed the scoring but failed in slotting in the equalizer or the winning goal in the game.
As such, the host has more chance of keeping the three points in the game. Also, we can expect the match to be a high scoring affair.
