Wellington Phoenix get a 2-2 away draw against Newcastle Jets in their last round fixture.

Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United: Predictions

Both sides will be desperate to get the win so they can move up the table.

Gui Finkler and Kosta Barbourouses are now showing the class of creativity and scoring but need to continue this form if they want to get a win here.

Adelaide United did win their last game in Wellington Phoenix when they made a charge to the A-League title but now, the team is different and not going as well.

But United were poor last game and they need to sort out defensive lapses of concentration and scoring goals to put instant pressure on the opposition. Given Adelaide United’s form right now, Wellington Phoenix should do enough to get the win in this fixture.
