Reason For Wellington Phoenix vs Western Sydney Betting Tips

  • Wellington Phoenix are unbeaten in three games, winning their last two, lifting themselves into 9th place after a disastrous start to the season.
  • Western Sydney Wanderers started the new season superbly but their form has taken a huge dip, with three losses in a row leaving them eight points off top spot.
  • Wellington Phoenix games have beaten the 2.5 goal line 71% of the time.
  • Both sides have the found the net in 71% of games involving these two teams this season.

Can Wellington Phoenix keep their form going?

Wellington Phoenix endured a terrible start to the season, failing to find even a point in their first four games but they have been able to turn things around in the past couple of weeks with two 2-1 wins over Adelaide United and Brisbane Roar. This has hauled the side back into the reckoning for the playoffs, leapfrogging both Central Coast and Perth Glory.

In those games they’ve amassed 15 shots on target, they were only able to manage 20 shots on target in the five games before that so things are definitely looking up for the New Zealand club. The arrival of Gary Hooper seems to have given them a competitive edge in the final third and they’ll be keen to keep things rolling this weekend and jump into the top six, something that looked almost impossible just three weeks ago.

Western Sydney Wanderers need to turn things around…quickly!

The excellent start to the season that Western Sydney saw is a distant memory with three losses in a row leaving them eight points behind league leaders, and bitter rivals, Sydney FC. They’ve looked a little lost and seem to lack a cutting edge in the final third, scoring just three times in their last four games.

Pressure is mounting on head coach, Markus Babbel, which seems silly with the side sitting fourth in the league but the demands of the fan base are big and their poor results and less than inspiring displays have some fans calling for a change. They’ll need to find a result soon in order to keep in touch with the teams at the top and, potentially, save their manager’s job.

Do The Wanderers leave New Zealand with all three points?

Things don’t look good for Western Sydney heading into this game but we’re backing them to step up as the pressure mounts and show some of their early season form once again. Wellington Phoenix are looking in good shape and we’re predicting that the 2.5 goal line will be beaten with both teams finding the net.

Its hard to find much between these two teams apart though and, for that reason, we’re predicting a 2-2 scoreline meaning each team leaves with a point. Western Sydney have been in poor form but have the better side overall whilst Wellington Phoenix have the current form to be able to take something from the game.
