Wellington Phoenix vs Perth Glory Predictions 


Bruno Fornaroli has returned to his best and has helped turned Perth into an exciting team this season. They face a Phoenix side who have been competitive despite a plethora of injuries. I’m backing BTTS and a Perth win, with value on Fornaroli scoring.

  • Wellington have lost 4 of their last 7 matches (A-League).
  • Wellington have seen BTTS in 3 of their last 4 matches against Perth (A-League).
  • Perth Glory have seen BTTS in 7 of their last 8 matches (A-League).
  • Perth Glory have 4 of their last 5 matches against Wellington (A-League).
  • Bruno Fornaroli has scored 6 goals in his last 7 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Perth Glory have a 20-14 advantage in the head-to-head with eight draws in 42 matches. 

Midfielder Joel Chianese scored the only goal the last time these two sides met, as Perth went on to record a 1-0 win in the Sydney hub.

Wellington Phoenix Form


Injuries and suspensions to key players, coupled with the side playing home games in Wollongong, have seen the Phoenix struggle in 2021.

After consecutive losses to Sydney FC and Central Coast, Wellington showed some promise in their 2-2 draw with Western Sydney. Striker Mirza Muratovic opened the scoring before midfielder Louis Fenton rescued a point with his 79th minute goal. 

A 2-0 loss away to Melbourne Victory followed which saw the Phoenix finish the round in last position on the table. Though this was quickly rectified in their 2-0 win away to Newcastle. 

Striker David Ball scored on return from suspension, while young forward Ben Waine sealed the win with his debut goal for the club.

Wellington Phoenix Injuries & Team News


Ball made an impactful return from a two-match suspension in the win against Newcastle. 

Israeli international Tomer Hemed came off the bench after recovering from a hamstring injury and will be in contention to start.

Defender Luke DeVere is still out with a knee injury, with the centre back set to be sidelined for another 10 weeks.

Perth Glory Form


Perth Glory are shaping up as a contender this season with their incredibly potent front third.

After a three week break due to border restrictions, the Glory returned in emphatic style defeating Brisbane Roar 3-1.

Spanish midfielder Diego Castro starred with a brace, while Bruno Fornaroli also scored in the win at home. 

While Fornaroli found himself on the scoresheet in the next match against Central Coast, the Glory fell short to the Mariners in a 2-1 defeat. 

Perth Glory Injuries & Team News


Winger Chris Ikonomidis is still two weeks away from an ankle injury which has kept him out for over a year. 

Defender Osama Malik will also miss the match due to a shoulder injury.
