Wellington Phoenix vs Brisbane Roar FC Prediction

Brisbane has conceded exactly two goals in their last six away matches in a row, and in seven of their last eight fixtures on the road. The team has conceded at least a goal in each of their last 13 away ties, and in 20 of their last 22 attempts away from home. The trend highly suggests that Brisbane will concede at least two goals.

Wellington Phoenix is one of the best teams in the league on basis of home records, meanwhile, Brisbane is one of the worst considering away stats. Brisbane has not yet won a single game away from home. Only the Mariners have conceded more away goals than Brisbane in the competition. It’s easy to infer that Wellington will win the match.

The winning margin was two in four of Wellington’s last five games. The same held true for three of Brisbane’s last four fixtures. Considering Wellington’s habit of preferring to be on the safe side during the final stage of matches, a two-goal winning margin is highly likely.
