Sydney FC vs Wellington Phoenix Prediction & Match Preview

Sydney FC vs Wellington Phoenix
Australia A-League
Date: Friday, 17 July 2020
Kick-off at 10:30 UK/ 11:30 CET
Venue: Jubilee Oval.

The Sky Blues are the reigning champions of the competition, and they seem well-placed to finish at the top of the table at the end of the regular season. They have a lead of eight points in the first spot, over the second-placed Melbourne City – who have played three games extra.

The pandemic break also came at the perfect time for the team, as they appeared to be slightly struggling at that time. However, the well-rested players are once again raring to get back on the pitch, and dominate the whole league.

Considering their stature in A-League, their impressive displays in previous h2h fixtures, and the struggles of the Nix on the road all through the season – expect Sydney to resume their campaign with a victory.

Sydney FC vs Wellington Phoenix Prediction

Steve Corica’s men are the best team in the whole country, and they are in pursuit to defend their title – which they had won in style last year.

They were unbeaten in 22 of their last 25 overall match-ups, and had won seven of their preceding ten appearances at this stadium. They had also recorded ten of the former twelve h2h wins, and had won four of the preceding five h2h meetings at this venue.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their last 14 matches away from home, and in the process had even gone through a seven-fixture losing run.

Considering these stats, expect a convincing from the defending champions – Sydney, this Friday.
