Competition: A-League

Market: Wellington Phoenix win and over 1.5 goals

Odds: 20/21 @ Bet 365

Knowing that three points on Friday morning would see them break into the top-two, Wellington will welcome Western United to the Westpac Stadium.

Starting with the hosts, picking up a 1-0 win over fellow top-two hopefuls Melbourne City last week and continuing on what has been a stellar run of form at the Westpac Stadium, the mood in Wellington’s camp will be on the rise. Sat within three points of breaking into the AFC Champions League spots, Ufuk Talay’s men have won five of their last six matches on home soil and are unbeaten in front of their own supporters since the 27th of November. With a growing reputation across the A-League for their recent displays in the final third, Wellington picked up what was a deserved 3-0 win when they faced off against Western United earlier in the season and they should be looking to make another statement on Friday morning.

As for the visitors, hit with a 1-0 defeat against Brisbane last week and with their top half deficit only growing, Western United find themselves in the midst of what is another extended rut. Along with now failing to find the net in back-to-back A-League outings, fans around Geelong have seen their side record just a sole victory in their last seven attempts, a run that stems back to the 13th of December. Still struggling to find their feet after a bright start to the season, Head Coach Mark Rudan will be most concerned by his side’s issues on the road. Including a 3-2 defeat away at Melbourne City last month, Friday’s guests have landed just one win on the road over the past two months.
