The Big V will be massive favourites to clinch a three-pointer in the last home game of the regular season.

Kevin Muscat’s men will also be hoping to raise the spirits after a tough 6-2 loss to South Korean Ulsan in the fifth round of the AFC Champions League. This defeat has taken away Melbourne’s hopes for making the top two in the Group F. The team can now entirely focus on domestic affairs where they have generally done well recently. The Big V have won four out of last five in A-League and they’ll come into this off the back of three subsequent victories at AAMI Park.

The Nix will likely finish the regular season at the very foot of the standings. They’ve claimed only 18 points in 25 games so far. Additionally, they have been struggling to keep things tight at the back lately losing four and drawing one of last five matches in the competition. Away from home, the Nix have lost five on the bounce in A-League, netting just twice in the process.

Melbourne Victory vs Wellington Phoenix: Head-to-head

Melbourne Victory have dominated this match-up over the history (19 wins to Wellington’s 6).

However, the Nix have managed to clinch one of rare wins in this term of the A-League just against the Big V (2-1 in January this year).

Melbourne have won 11, drawn 3 and lost 3 of 17 home ties against the Nix.

Melbourne Victory vs Wellington Phoenix: Prediction

The hosts have been red-hot in the final third at AAMI Park recently. They have scored the total of 11 goals in last three home games in the A-League.

Given they are now up against the competition’s weakest outfit, we have to back the home win by two or more goals as the main betting option.
