Head to Head


Adelaide have a 20-10 advantage in the head-to-head with 11 draws in 41 encounters. 

Their last meeting saw Wellington escape with a 2-1 win at home. The Phoenix responded through strikers Ben Waine and Tomer Hemed after the Reds took the lead early. 

Adelaide United Form


Adelaide have been far from their best over the last few weeks. 

The Reds rectified a two goal deficit to force a 2-2 draw out of Sydney FC away from home. Defender Jordan Elsey got Adelaide back into the game before striker Tomi Juric’s free kick drew the visitors level. 

A 2-1 loss away to Wellington followed before they were held to a controversial 0-0 draw by Western United. The Reds were lucky to escape with a draw after Western had a goal disallowed by the VAR. 

Adelaide United Injuries & Team News


Forward Mohamed Toure will miss the match due to suspension after he was sent off last week. 

Goalkeeper James Delianov is still out with a hamstring injury, while Spanish recruit Javi Lopez will also miss with a knee injury.

Wellington Phoenix Form


Wellington are unbeaten in their last five matches and have turned their season around. 

Striker Ben Waine was on target as the Phoenix held Western United to a 1-1 draw in Tasmania. 

Wellington then defeated Adelaide at home 2-1 with Waine and striker Tomer Hemed scoring the goals. 

A 0-0 draw with Brisbane Roar followed, with the Phoenix finishing with a well earned point in extremely wet conditions.
