Wellington Phoenix vs Melbourne City
Australia – A-League
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 08:35 UK
Venue: QBE Stadium (North Shore).
Melbourne City are looking to end the regular season with a streak of four consecutive wins. They clinched three in a row without conceding a single time in the process, and getting the last one should be the easiest task since the Citizens are about to play the rock-bottomed Wellington Phoenix on Saturday.
Furthermore, a win here would book the third place and a somewhat easier opponent in the Elimination Finals set to be played next weekend. No9t to mention anything else but a three-pointer against the weakest side in the league would ruin the atmosphere in the dressing room ahead of the most important part of the season.
Wellington made a change on the bench a bit too late, hiring Chris Greenacre as the new head coach only in March. The Englishman however, failed to leave an impact as the team lost three and drew one so far under his leadership. It is obviously very hard for him to find the way to motivate players who did not play defense at all in the last couple of fixtures. The Nix shipped seven goals in last three league affairs and they’ll have hard times arresting such slump in form against the in-form Melbourne City side here.
