Newcastle Jets vs Wellington Phoenix
Australia – A-League
Date: Thursday, 13 August 2020
Kick-off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: Jubilee Oval (Sydney).
Newcastle Jets is on an unbeaten run in the league for the last four fixtures. Their triumphs include victories over the top two teams in the table as it stands. The Nix will be at trouble in their last match in the regular season despite having a 10 points lead over the host, as their recent clashes in the campaign haven’t turned to their favor.
The Jets had their previous encounter at home and they won it against Western United with a 1-0 score on the board. Wellington Phoenix has confirmed a berth in the quarter-final play-offs, but the semi-final spot looks distant as Melbourne City has two more games in hand. The Nix will visit after a 1-1 draw at home against Brisbane Roar in the last league clash.
