Key Stats

Pre-game odds and win probability: Surprise favorites Melbourne

  • HOME: 13/5 (3.60) – 24.0%
  • DRAW: 49/20 (3.45) – 27.5%
  • AWAY: 107/100 (2.07) – 47.5%

*These Wellington Phoenix vs Melbourne Victory odds are subject to change

According to the odds above, we have Melbourne Victory down as the expected winners, with a staggering 47.5% win probability at 107/100 (2.07). Everyone pegged them to be the underdogs a few weeks ago, but it seems that recent good form forced the bookies to say Wellington Phoenix are the underdogs with a lackluster 24.0% chance of scooping the three points on the 12th of April.

BTTS is also quite plausible, as our favorite Wellington Phoenix vs Melbourne Victory prediction stands a massive 58.82% success chance at 7/10 (1.70).

Melbourne Victory are crushing Wellington Phoenix at almost every chance they get. How can our Wellington Phoenix vs Melbourne Victory predictions possibly favor the home team?

Wellington Phoenix team news and form: Inconsistency plagues Wellington

Coach Giancarlo Italiano’s boys were at the top of the table for the better part of the last two months. However, recently they dropped their guard down and lost plenty of points. As a result, the team is now down 2nd place.

Predicted lineup: Paulsen (GK), Kelly-Heald, Sutton, Wootton, Surman, Sheridan, Pennington, Old, Salas, Kraev & Barbarouses

With three victories and a draw in the last four A-League matches, Melbourne Victory are undoubtedly key favorites for the three points. Coach Anthony Popovic doesn’t have any major injury or suspension issues to deal with, so we should see a win for the Boys in Blue on the 12th of April.

Player to watch: Bruno Fornaroli

We fancy Fornaroli’s chances of making something happen at Melbourne Regional Stadium, as he’s by far coach Anthony Popovic’s key weapon this season. Bruno bagged a total of 18 goals since the start of the campaign. Not only is he the best finisher for Melbourne Victory, but also the key one in the A-League in general.

Top Goalscorer Award up for grabs

Melbourne Victory’s second-best finisher has only six goals to his name, which means Fornaroli scored three times more goals than Machach.
