Wellington Phoenix vs Melbourne Victory Preview


Wellington Phoenix head into the second-leg of their semi-final with Melbourne Victory all square after a 0-0 draw last weekend. I'm backing them to make home advantage count, but it could be another cagey one.

Head To Head


The Phoenix have won three of their last 10 against Melbourne, with Victory securing four wins and the other three ending in draws including last week's 0-0 stalemate in the first leg.

Wellington Phoenix Form 


Wellington Phoenix finished second on the ladder in the regular season but a place in the Grand Final remains in the balance. 

Their 0-0 draw with Melbourne in the first-leg was hardly a vintage performance from Phoenix, although they were excellent defensively as they held firm despite Victory's 20 efforts on goal.

It continued a theme with Phoenix having made a habit out of keeping clean sheets of late, snaring three shutouts in their last four.

Wellington have also won their last six home matches.

Melbourne Victory Form 


The Melbourne Victory were left frustrated by their inability to score in the first-leg and were left to rue these missed opportunities this week. 

The 0-0 draw with Wellington last week made it two without defeat for Melbourne, but they have now failed to win any of their last five matches in 90 minutes.

In that time they have lost twice and drawn three times, including coming through an Elimination Final with Melbourne City on penalties. 

Verdict

I am backing another cagey affair between these sides with Phoenix to edge a low-scoring match.
