Perth Glory vs Wellington Phoenix
Date: Sunday, 28 April 2019
Kick-Off 10:00 UK / 11:00 CET
Venue: HBF Park (Perth).
Regular season champions Perth Glory will play host to Wellington Phoenix in the last game of the campaign on Sunday at HBF Park. The match will by no means affect the final look of the standings and we can expect both managers to make some changes to their starting line-ups in order to keep main stars fresh for the play-offs.
The hosts enjoyed a scintillating campaign in this term of A-League. They are five points clear at the top of the standings coming into this last round fixture. The gap was even bigger, but they fell 1-0 to main challengers Sydney last weekend. The head coach Tony Popovich rested his main players and the loss did not make any impact on the atmosphere in the dressing room whatsoever.
Perth Glory vs Wellington Phoenix: Head-to-head
Perth Glory lead the head to head tie by two wins ahead of 38th clash against Wellington.
The Glory were much better in the history of home encounters with the Phoenix (12 wins and 5 defeats).
Three or more goals were scored in five of last seven head to head ties between these two likes.
Perth celebrated a demolishing 3-0 victory when these two teams last met each other in early-February this year.
Perth Glory vs Wellington Phoenix: Prediction
Wellington also had an overwhelming campaign this season. They made it to the play-offs which is a huge accomplishment for the team led by Mark Rudan. He has a deadly line-up of strikers in the likes of David Williams and Roy Krishna who have combined the total of 29 goals this season.
However, Wellington’s main issue is the lack of meticulousness at the back, especially when they go up against stronger teams. You should thus not be surprised to know each of last six games they played saw goals scored at both ends.
We have reasons to expect fireworks in the clash where defensive lines won’t make big impact. Over 2.5 goals FT is a banker at 1.40 odds, while you won’t make mistake backing the both teams to core option either at 1.50.
