Wellington Phoenix vs Sydney FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Wellington Phoenix had yet another disappointing performance as they lost 1-0 against Perth Glory. Perth Glory were able to come up with the decisive goal just before the hour mark through Diego Castro. Sydney made it six consecutive wins in all competitions after beating Melbourne City 3-1 at home. Luke Brattan provided City with a shock lead in the 37th minute, but quick goals from Adrian Mierzejewski and Bobo put Sydney in front just before half-time. A late goal from Alex Brosque made the game safe for the hosts, who watched City go down to 10-men after Emmanuel Muscat’s sending-off. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This Sydney outfit are still not able to keep clean sheets on a consistent basis. Even though things looked on the up in this regard after clean sheets against Adelaide and Western Sydney, Melbourne City were able to score in the recent league match against Graham Arnold’s team. Wellington Phoenix have scored in five out of the last six games against this team. I see decent value in backing both teams to score.

Bobo has scored in Sydney’s last three matches against Wellington. In fact, he has come up with the opening goal in the last two games against this team. The Brazilian’s recent form has not been outstanding, but he has scored in three out of the last four appearances. I would go with Bobo to score anytime in the game.

Both teams to score – 7/10

Bobo to score anytime – 8/13

Wellington Phoenix Preview

The Wellington Phoenix outfit are now in danger of being cut off from the rest of the table, as they have already fallen a whopping four points behind Brisbane Roar – albeit with a game in hand. Wellington Phoenix have conceded 21 goals – at least three more than Perth Glory in the second spot. Such has been their poor defensive record this season, and there appears to be no improvement in sight with the team letting in 13 over the last six matches. Even though the team did score twice against the likes of Melbourne Victory and five against Perth Glory, Wellington have been unable to score in the last two league matches. Andrija Kaludjerovic is Wellington’s top scorer with seven goals in 10 games.

Wellington Phoenix Team News

Wellington Phoenix have no injury or suspension issues ahead of this match.

Sydney FC Preview

Sydney have been able to get some positive results over the last few weeks to maintain the five point advantage over Newcastle Jets, who appear to have moved away from the recent slump in form. It is imperative for Sydney to keep the winning run going in order to maintain this decisive advantage. Sydney are fast catching up Newcastle Jets in terms of scoring goals with Graham Arnold’s team now just two goals behind Jets’ tally of 25 goals so far. However, Sydney are better off Newcastle when it comes to scoring form over the last six matches. Bobo hitting form is a key factor behind this improvement, and the Brazilian is now on to 7 goals in 11 appearances this season.

There are no injury or suspension worries for Sydney coming into the game.
