Wellington Phoenix vs Perth Glory Predictions 


Football returns to Eden Park, a venue where the Phoenix have enjoyed plenty of success. While Perth have been dominant at home, they have not travelled well at all this season. 

I’m tipping Wellington to win and Tomer Hemed to score.

  • Wellington have won their last 2 matches (A-League).
  • Wellington have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 3 matches (A-League).
  • Wellington have won 3 of their last 4 matches against Perth (A-League).
  • Wellington's Tomer Hemed has scored 9 goals in his last 12 matches (A-League).
  • Perth have lost 4 of their last 6 away matches (A-League).
  • Perth have seen over 2.5 goals in 5 of their last 6 matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Perth have a 20-16 advantage against Wellington in the head-to-head with eight draws in 44 encounters. 

The Phoenix picked up a shock 3-1 win in Perth the last time these two sides met. 

Striker Ben Waine opened the scoring before midfielders Louis Fenton and Jaushua Sotirio added second half goals.

Wellington Phoenix Form


Wellington come into this clash as the league’s form team after going nine matches unbeaten.

The Phoenix held league leaders Melbourne City to a 2-2 draw away from home, with Israeli forward Tomer Hemed netting a double. 

The side then picked up a triumphant 3-0 win against Western United, as they returned to New Zealand for the first time this season. 

Midfielder Clayton Lewis opened the scoring in the 39th minute, while forwards Reno Piscopo and Hemed sealed the win with second half strikes.

Buoyed by this happy homecoming, the Phoenix secured a 2-1 win in their next match against Western Sydney. Striker David Ball opened the scoring, before Hemed popped up once again to score the winner.

A come-from-behind win against Adelaide United followed. Strikers Bruno Fornaroli and Chris Ikonomidis scored inside the last ten minutes to guide the side to a 2-1 win.

Perth’s run of four straight wins came to an end as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Macarthur. Captain Diego Castro opened the scoring in the 13th minute before the Bulls hit back just before the break with an equaliser.
