It was a poor start to the 2021/22 A-League campaign by Wellington Phoenix, who could only claim a 1-1 draw at Macarthur, the same team they defeated by a 0-3 scoreline in the last game of last season. The fans will be hoping for an improved performance at home as Central Coast Mariners pay them a visit.

Wellington Phoenix to Win

Games between Wellington Phoenix and Central Coast Mariners have been combative and unpredictable of late. The hosts have won three of the last five fixtures at Sky Stadium, but their two losses have been huge, one being a 2-8 drubbing. Nevertheless, the Nix seem to be in fine form, unbeaten in twelve competitive outings. We are backing them to claim the three points on offer but be wary as the Mariners can spring a surprise.

Total Goals – Over 2.5

While predicting the winners of meetings between the Nix and Mariners has been difficult, there is one thing that can be taken for granted, and that is goals. Four of the last five duels have concluded with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline as both teams shared 22 goals between them. We believe this trend will continue into the 2021/22 A-League campaign as both sides arrive to claim the three points on offer.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Take the last 0-2 win Central Coast Mariners claimed at the Sky Stadium out of consideration and we get five successive fixtures where both sides had gotten on the scoreboard. Interestingly, the fixture in question was an anomaly as the only low scoring affair in the time period. With both teams scoring in their season openers, they will be getting on the scoreboard again as early season mistakes play their part.

Match Preview of Wellington Phoenix vs Central Coast Mariners: Nix look to avenge last season's distasteful defeat

The Nix disappointed fans and pundits with their seventh-placed finish last campaign. Ufuk Talay has the explicit charge of returning them to the top half of the points table and the former midfielder has his work cut out for him as Central Coast Mariners pay him a visit. The Mariners have had their fair share of impressive performances at the Sky Stadium and will be looking to relive that glory.

With the season yet to get in its full groove and both teams having a couple of competitive games under their belts, it looks unlikely that their true self is revealed. However, one thing is for certain that goals will be featured. Both sides scored in their season openers but also showed signs of nerves at the back. Mariners allowed a late surge by their rivals and Nick Montgomery would have surely worked to iron out the chinks in their armour.
