Wellington Phoenix vs. Melbourne Victory: Prediction for the Australian Championship match (March 24)
Wellington Phoenix FC
On March 24, in the framework of the Australian A-League, a match between "Wellington Phoenix" and "Melbourne Victory" will take place at the Sky Stadium. Who will be luckier in the battle of the two losers? Read about it in our prediction.
Wellington Phoenix FC
As a whole, "Wellington Phoenix" can be very pleased with how they spent the last month. For the four previous games, Ufuk Talay's wards scored seven points. By the way, after the first eight rounds, there were only five matches played. So the progress is obvious and if the team continues to play at the same level, they may even get involved in the struggle for getting into the Top-6. But this is still a long way off.
So far, we can note that "Wellington" have scored most of the points against opponents of approximately equal class, such as "Newcastle Jets" (2:0), or against those who experience a lot of game problems, such as "Perth Glory" (3:0) and "Brisbane Roar" (1:1).
Upcoming Predictions for Football
"Melbourne Victory" continues to perform terribly, absolutely not pleasing their fans with the game. The team led by Grant Brebner won only twice in eleven matches, gaining only seven points. It is not difficult to guess that the guests of this match occupy the last place of "honor" in the standings.
March has not yet brought a single point for "Melbourne": the club suffered two defeats with a shocking goal difference - 1:9. The greatest contribution was made by the neighbors represented by "City", who sent six unanswered goals to "Victory". "Adelaide United" scored twice less, but that was enough for success - 1:3.
- In the first game between the teams, today's guests turned out to be stronger with a score of 2:0.
- "Phoenix" has not lost at home in the last three matches (one win and two draws).
In this pair, the hosts look much more preferable, as they will probably be eager to return the favor for the defeat a month ago. During this period "Wellington" managed to make a step forward, which cannot be said about their opponent. So we expect to see an act of convincing revenge.
Despite the fact that both teams experience certain difficulties in defending their possessions, today the parties will try to act as carefully as possible since the cost of a mistake can be high, everyone needs three points. Therefore, in this situation, it is wiser to bet on the lower total.
Our prediction is a victory for "Wellington Phoenix" with 1.73 odds on 1xbet.
