Wellington Phoenix vs Western United FC Prediction

Phoenix recorded a 1-0 win at home against Melbourne City in their latest match-up. The win against the second-best team in the competition, that too with an accompanied clean sheet has raised the confidence levels of the Wellington players.

Meanwhile, Western United lost 0-1 at home against Brisbane Roar, and this was their fourth loss in the past six games, and the sixth winless fixture in the previous seven match-ups. The streak has further indicated the recent loss of form for Western United.

On the other hand, Wellington were unbeaten in 11 of their last 13 overall games, and eight of these were wins. At home, they are on a run of four wins on the trot, and had won six of the last seven games as well. Moreover, since the beginning of 2019, the team has lost just four times at this venue.

Two of those losses had come against Sydney – the absolute best team in the league, and another one against Perth Glory – a podium contender this season, and the reigning Premiers. Moreover, Phoenix had won the latest h2h encounter 1-3 (that too on the road), and most importantly, Western United are severely inexperienced.

Taking all these observations into account, expect a dominating victory by Wellington Phoenix this Friday.
