Wellington Phoenix odds: 28/25 (2.12) – 46.5%

Draw odds: 27/10 (3.70) – 23.0%

Adelaide United odds: 43/20 (3.15) – 30.5%

Despite a rather lackluster success probability of 23.0%, we believe that a Draw is the likeliest outcome at Wellington Regional Stadium this week, due to the head-to-head history between these two. Sure, Wellington have been crushing it this season and they are the expected winners, with a 46.5% win probability, but we are convinced that we are headed toward a dull affair on the 3rd of March.

Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United Lineups & Team News

Wellington Phoenix

Wellington Phoenix are at the top of the A-League ranking, with 10 wins, seven draws, and only two matches lost. Coach Giancarlo Italiano couldn’t be more pleased with his boys’ contribution, but if he wants to get the three points this week, he’d have to make some changes to prove our Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United predictions wrong.

Predicted lineup – Paulsen (GK), Hughes, Wootton, Surman, Payne, Al-Taay, Rufer, Kelly-Heald, Old, Ball & Conchie

Adelaide United

Lachlan Barr, Joshua Cavallo, Jay Barnett, Jonny Yull, and key goalscorer Hiroshi Ibusuki won’t partake for coach Carl Veart in the upcoming A-League match. Ibusuki’s injury is a massive blow for the manager, but a huge plus in favor of our key Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United predictions.

Predicted lineup – Delianov (GK), Lopez, Kikianis, Warland, Kitto, Alagich, Isaias, Van der Saag, Mauk, Clough & Jovanovic

Player to Watch: Luka Jovanovic

We have an unexpected player as the player to watch in our Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United prediction, as coach Carl Veart is undoubtedly wondering what to do about the injury and suspension issues in front of him. First, top goalscorer Ibusuki got injured, which is horrible news to begin with. Then, Ben Halloran earned himself a red card in the match against Western Sydney Wanderes last week. That’s why it’s up to 18-year-old youngster Jovanovic to step up and be the hero coach Veart desperately needs right now.
