The team from New Zealand have started their season well with 2 games undefeated and are in 4th spot on the number of goals scored.

In the last 6 matches they have lost 3 and won twice. In 5 of the last 7 games a score of over 2.5 goals were scored.

At home they are better with 3 wins and only 1 lost in last 5 games, in which 4 saw over 2.5 goals.

The Wanderers do not have a win this season. With a defeat and a draw in their 2 games they are badly in need for a win to pick up momentum.

The team from Sydney have won 3 of their last 6 away games but they are struggling this season with both their games being away matches.

This match is the third game on the road for the Wanderers and maybe a home game would give them the lift they need.

It is still early in the season and with a long way to go the hosts will want to continue their unbeaten run which may prove crucial in the business end of the league.

Wellington Phoenix vs Western Sydney Wanderers: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The Nix are winless against this opposition in the last 9 games on the trot, while Wanderers have clinched victory in 6 games from those 9.
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in 6 of the last 8 h2h matches.
  • None of the last 10 h2h matches between them ended as a goalless draw.
  • At Westpac Stadium Wellington have been winless in last 5 games. Three of those games had a scoreline of over 2.5 goals.

Wellington Phoenix vs Western Sydney Wanderers: Prediction

Over 2.5 goals came from 4 of the previous 5 home games and in 6 of the last 10 games across all venues for the Nix. The team managed by Markus Babbel has 7 of their last 10 matches from all competitions end with a score of over 2.5 goals and 3 of the last 5 away matches also have the same trend. So we can bet on the score to be over 2.5 goals on Saturday.

Babbel’s team has scored in 8 of their last 10 games and also scored in 4 of their previous games on the road. The hosts have found the net in 6 of the previous 9 games. So both the teams have an eye for goal and we can assume both of them to score in this match with 1.57 odd.

Wellington Phoenix vs Western Sydney Wanderers: Betting Tips

  • Over 2.5 goals @ 1.70 (7/10).
  • Both teams to score @ 1.57 (4/7).
