Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 25 July 2020
Kick-Off at 08:00 UK/ 09:00 CET
Venue: Sky Stadium (Wellington)
The hosts are coming into this match after the win over Perth Glory. Currently, they are placed third in the table but have a long way behind in the title race. From the 22 games, they have 12 wins and lost seven in return.
The Reds are in the last playoff spot right now. But they are currently under pressure from Western United and Newcastle Jets who are just three points behind them. The defense needs to improve if they wish to win more games.

Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United: Prediction
The visitors are losing consecutive games on their trips away from home. In their last eight games, they have lost six. From the 11 away games, they have lost seven until now. So even though they have a head to head domination over this opposition, it will be very unlikely for them to pick up three points in this game.
At the same time, the Nix is the second-best home team in this league season. They have 8 wins and have lost only twice in the 11 home games so far.
Also, they have kept a clean defensive performance with only 9 goals conceded in their home games. There is a chance of this game turning out to be a high scoring affair. The majority of their head to head matches in recent times had a final score with more than 2.5 goals.
In the last four league matches played by the hosts, the final score had a similar trend. This was also the case in for previous games of Adelaide as well. So I am backing the hosts to win and the game to have more than 2.5 goals.
