Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 06:35 UK/ 07:35 CET
Venue: Wellington Regional Stadium (Wellington).
The Nix has started the season well winning their opener. But then things went downwards. At present they are on a 2 match losing streak in the league and are without a win in 3. They have scored only 2 goals but conceded 6 in return. With this, they are 7th in the points table.
In their last 7 competitive matches, the team from New Zealand lost 4 and has 2 wins to cover it up. But they have not got 3 points in their last 3 matches. Over 2.5 goals were scored in total in 6 of their last 9 matches across all venues. Recent home form is nothing like impressive. They have 2 wins and defeats in the last 5 home games in all competitions. Over 2.5 goals came in 4 games they played in front of their home crowd.
Adelaide had an unbeaten run of 3 matches up to the last game which was lost 2-0 to Perth Glory. They have one win and defeat till now scoring 5 and giving away 4 goals in return.
The Reds are 6th with just 1 point above their opponents for Saturday. The recent defeat has hit them hard, and a win is much needed in this game or else they will be left at the bottom half of the table. An 8 match unbeaten streak which had 6 wins was broken with their recent defeat at home. Also under 2.5 goals came in 6 of their last 9 matches across all grounds.
But Coach Marco Kurz will be happy that his team are on a 4 game win streak in matches on the road. This will prove crucial in this upcoming game against a struggling Nix side.

Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United: Prediction
We are looking at a possible away win on Saturday. The Reds are on a 4 match winning streak in away fixtures and I do not think they will let that go, well not against this opponents. The h2h stats are also in their favor as they have not lost to the Nix in 8 previous occasions.
The hosts have found the net in 4 of their last 6 home matches. Adelaide has also scored in 6 of their recent games on the road. So there is ample chance for both the teams to score in this match as well. Thus a bet can be placed on both teams to score with 1.66 odd.
