Exclusive Sydney FC vs Wellington Phoenix prediction, tips, and odds

Sydney FC are trailing nine points for 1st place in the A-League as Melbourne City are pulling ahead. This means that coach Steve Corica’s boys will have to work extra hard on Saturday if they are to retain chances for the trophy.

Sydney FC to win

Four years have passed since Wellington Phoenix last defeated Sydney FC. The clash on the 8th of December, 2018, ended with an impressive 1:3 victory for Wellington Phoenix but the following nine games were almost completely dominated by Sydney FC. The home team enjoyed seven victories and two draws against this opponent and we feel comfortable that they will get a much-needed victory against Wellington Phoenix.

Sydney FC – Over 1.5 goals

Sydney FC scored in each one of the last 10 games versus Wellington Phoenix and are expected to continue with this high-flying display on Saturday as well. Six of those games had Sydney FC scoring at least twice and there’s nothing that indicates a change of quality in Wellington Phoenix’s defensive line. After all, Wellington Phoenix have the 3rd-weakest defense in the league with 18 goals conceded in the 2022/23 campaign.

It’s clear for all to see at 91/100 (1.91) and 52.0% that Sydney FC are clear favorites to win this game. A draw is the least plausible outcome in this game at only 23% and at 25% we have Wellington Phoenix seeking to poach the victory underneath Sydney FC. The 18/25 (1.78) odds for Sydney FC to score at least two goals means that there’s a 56% chance for coach Steve Corica’s boys to find the net twice.

Predicted lineups, team news, and last result

Sydney FC

Yes, Sydney FC won their last clash in the A-League with a 0:2 result but there’s not good we can say about their display on Sunday. Newcastle Jets were the superior team as they completely dominated Sydney FC in every aspect – more possession, more shots on target, more shots at target, and more passes. Well-placed shots by Adam Le Fondre and Robert Mak were decisive as Sydney FC snatched the three points.

Predicted lineup – Redmayne (GK), Caballo, Rodwell, Donachie, Grant, Burgess, Retre, Brattan, Mak, Caceres & le Fondre

Wellington Phoenix

Wellington Phoenix were unlucky to get defeated by Melbourne City on the 2nd of January as they weren’t so poor on the pitch. Coach Ufuk Talay’s boys were hosting their opponents at Sky Stadium and they were the better of the two teams. Wellington Phoenix had 20 shots at target, seven on target, 52% possession, and a total of 552 passes. Yet, it was Melbourne City who emerged victoriously from this clash.

Predicted lineup – Sail (GK), Elliot, Wootton, Payne, Mauragis, Yan, Ugarkovic, Lewis, Kraev, Ball & Zawada

Player to watch: Bozhidar Kraev

The young Bulgarian attacking midfielder has been sensational for Wellington Phoenix this season. He pulled off a remarkable piece of goalscoring by finding the net on five occasions. Furthermore, he provided his teammates with two assists. He’s definitely no one-trick pony as he seems the kind of player who can do it all – score and create. The former Levski Sofia player is without a doubt the most important player on coach Ufuk Talay and we expect him to be in the starting XI for this game.
