Venue: ANZ Stadium (Sydney).
Wanderers are desperate for a win as they face Adelaide United in round14 of the A-league this Friday.
The team from Sydney are 8th in the table after losing 8 of their 13 matches. Over 27 goals have been conceded in that period scoring just 17 in return. At present they are on a 4 match losing streak in the league. Including this, they lost 5 of their last 6 matches and are without a win in the last 7 as well. In 5 of those games, the total score had over 2.5 goals at the full time.
Their only win in the last 5 home games came against the Mariners who are at the bottom of the table. All remaining 4 matches were defeats with 2 or more goals conceded. More than 2.5 goals were scored in total in 3 of those home matches and also all those games saw both teams score.
Meanwhile, Adelaide is coming at the back of a defeat themselves. An away defeat against Sydney FC ended a 4 match unbeaten run for the Reds. More than 2.5 goals were scored and they do not have a clean sheet in 3 of their last 5 matches over Australia.
From their last 5 traveling matches, they have won 3 and lost the remaining 2 games. In 4 of those games, the full-time score had over 2.5 goals in total. They also failed to keep a clean sheet in the last 4 matches on the road.

Reds have conceded goals in the last 4 away games and they scored in 4 of their last 5 travels as well. The hosts also scored in 4of their previous 5 home games. Thus we can bet on both sides to score accounting for their defensive weakness, with 1.60 odds.
