Perth Glory vs Wellington Phoenix Prediction
It has been a good run from both teams in the A-league this season. Since both are in good form and dire need of the three points, we can expect an exciting match at the HBF Park.
Perth Glory drew 2-2 with Melbourne Victory at home in their prior clash. Meanwhile, Wellington Phoenix grabbed all three points from the 2-1 encounter at home with Newcastle Jets.
Another three points would take Perth Glory to the second place. Even one point will be enough for Tony Popovic and the team, but they would want to strengthen their lead in the league table. Meanwhile, the Nix will need three points and a good goal difference to get into the top two.
Considering their away handicap and their dip in form on the road recently, it will not be wise to put the wager upon Wellington Phoenix. Perth Glory will be the better option to stand as the favorites in the game with their home ground advantage.
The Glory has stayed unbeaten in their recent four home matches in the campaign with three wins in it. Also, the host has lost only two of their seven home fixtures so far. With their home ground advantage, it is sure Glory can create more chances in the game.
Phoenix has recorded only two wins in their last five league fixtures. Even in their prior trip on the road, the Nix lost to Brisbane Roar with a 1-0 score on the board. Also, the visitor has marked only two wins in their seven away fixtures so far in the campaign.
Considering these stats, the punters can go with Perth Glory as the favorites to win in the clash. Since the Glory is on a scoring spree with 16 goals scored in 7 home matches, we can probably expect over 2.5 goals in ninety minutes.
