Wellington Phoenix vs Western United Predictions 


Western United are back in form after two straight wins. While Wellington have had no issues scoring, they have struggled to translate this into results. 

I’m backing BTTS and over 2.5 goals with Western United to win 2-1.

  • Wellington have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Wellington have lost 3 of their last 5 matches (A-League).
  • Wellington have seen over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 6 matches (A-League).
  • Western United have won 3 of their last 4 matches (A-League).
  • Western United have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 6 away matches (A-League).

Head to Head


Wellington have a 2-1 record in the head-to-head with no draws from three meetings. 

The Phoenix got the better of Western in a 2-0 win the last time they met. Left back Liberato Cacace opened the scoring before striker David Ball sealed the win with a 90th minute goal.

Wellington Phoenix Form


Wellington have lost consecutive games after recording a big win over Melbourne Victory. 

The Phoenix could not do a thing wrong as they defeated the Victory 4-1. Strikers Tomer Hemed and David Ball scored, as well as captain Ulises Davila.

But Wellington failed to back this up as they went down 1-0 to Macarthur at home the following week.

A much improved performance followed albeit one which ended in a 3-2 loss to Melbourne City. Hemed and Davila were again on the scoresheet for the Phoenix.

Centre back Luke DeVere remains sidelined with a knee injury. 

Western United Form


Western United have turned their season around after several wins. 

Mark Rudan’s side responded well after going down 2-1 to Macarthur by defeating rivals Melbourne City for the first time ever. 

Striker Besart Berisha equalised after City took the lead, before winger Lachlan Wales netted his first goal for the club to seal a 2-1 win. 

Western then recorded their first interstate win of the season as they defeated Newcastle 1-0. Wales scored inside the first minute as the side went on to record a narrow away victory.

Midfielder Seb Pasquali returned from a hip injury last week and is likely to be involved once again. 

Right-back Josh Risdon is the only other injury with the Socceroo recovering from a fractured tibia.
