Western United vs Wellington Phoenix Prediction

Both teams managed to find some form off late and this definitely make this contest an entertaining affair.

The Nix have been more impressive in recent weeks, not just because of their 6-match unbeaten streak, but also the number of scoring chances they create irrespective of the playing venue.

Ufuk Talay’s men believe in playing attacking football and this has finally started to bear fruits after a drab start to the season.

Western United are on a three-match unbeaten run, yet they do not have a strong home record. They will be looking for their third home win in 7 attempts on Saturday. Consistency is their problem and we cannot foresee which team turn up for the fixture this weekend. This makes it extremely hard to make a call on full-time results.

Despite the overall low turnout of goals from both sides this season, the last three of four games saw the teams adopting a more adventurous approach in the final third.

Thus, we must bank on goals at either end, since the Phoenix netted in every away game this season before their recent visit to Melbourne Victory. Meantime, United are coming to this game after netting 6 goals in their last three A-League games.
