Macarthur odds: 23/20 (2.15) – 46.1%

Draw odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 25.9%

Wellington Phoenix odds: 21/10 (3.10) – 29.0%

According to the odds above, we have the Bulls down as the expected winners, with a staggering 46.1% win probability at 23/20 (2.15). However, we believe coach Italiano’s troops are more likely to make something happen. That’s why we prefer the odds at 21/10 (3.10), as despite the 29.0% win probability, Wellington Phoenix look like the expected winners to us. Moreover, we also think we will get to see over 2.5 goals (58.14% chance at 18/25 (1.72)).

Macarthur vs Wellington Phoenix Lineups & Team News

Macarthur

The Bulls may have put an end to Melbourne Victory’s unbeaten run, but coach Sterjovski should be aware of the fact that his players were by far the weaker of the two sides at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium. They only managed to produce one shot on target, and they should count their blessings that shot-stopper Izzo didn’t had an off night.

Predicted lineup – Kurto (GK), Vujica, Jones, Uskok, Adamson, Lewis, Oliveira, Hollman, Rodrigues, Rose & Germain

Wellington Phoenix

Lined up in an experimental 4-3-2-1 formation, Wellington Phoenix were consistent with their display at Wellington Regional Stadium last week. They earned their 2-0 win over lackluster Western United. The fans are now hoping for more of the same from Kraev and his partners.

Predicted lineup – Paulsen (GK), Payne, Surman, Wootton, Kelly-Heald, Al-Taay, Rufer, Pennington, Ball, Kraev & Barbarouses

Player to Watch: Valere Germain

Why do we have Valere Germain as the player to watch in our Macarthur vs Wellington Phoenix prediction? Because Valere is the top finisher at his manager’s disposal this season. With a whopping 10 goals scored, he’s putting pressure on the likes of Melbourne Victory’s Fornaroli and Newcastle Jets’ Stamatelopoulos for the Top Goalscorer Award at the end of the season. If Germain can produce a solid display against Wellington Phoenix this week, perhaps he can go all the way and win the prestigious individual award.
