Wellington Phoenix to Win or Draw

It is a return to the basics for Wester United who have been out of action since late December 2021. On the other hand, Wellington Phoenix has seen action with participation in two more competitive matches than their rivals. They have claimed three wins in their last five matches at home. Moreover, their last three meetings with Western United at the Sky Stadium have concluded in their favour. We have kept our options open and going with a conservative Double Chance selection in their favour.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Three of the last four meetings between Wellington Phoenix and Western United at the Sky Stadium have only seen one set of supporters happy with their goal scoring antics. We believe this trend will be buckled in this meeting given both teams' recent form. Given their past heroics, the Nix will surely get on the scoreboard against their rivals but will have to be wary of their defensive output. They have conceded a whopping 13 goals in their last five outings and Western United will surely use one of the many ways to score against them.

Wellington Phoenix vs Western United: Check out the team lineups

Wellington Phoenix Predicted Lineup

While enjoying success in the FFA Cup, Wellington Phoenix has taken their focus away from the A-League. The Nix has struggled in Australian top-flight football. The prognosis for Ufuk Talay is simple, his attackers are not scoring enough, only three goals in their last five outings. On the other hand, the defence is shipping in too many as Alex Paulsen has been forced to pick the ball from his net 13 times.

Predicted XI: Alex Paulsen; Sam Sutton, Joshua Laws, Tim Payne, Louis Fenton; Alex Rufer, Clayton Lewis, Reno Piscopo, Jaushua Sotirio; Ben Waine, David Ball

Western United Predicted Lineup

Wellington Phoenix dumped Western United out of the FFA Cup and it is time for vengeance. United return to action after a long delay and have fresh legs to boast off about. While the Kiwis have struggled to keep pace with regular action, the Melburnians remain one of the best teams in Australian top-flight action. As they return to action, John Aloisi will surely have drilled extra hardness into his squad and they should give the Nix a tough time at the Sky Stadium.

Predicted XI: Jamie Young; Ben Garuccio, Leo Lacroix, Tomoki Imai, Josh Risdon; Steven Lustica, Neil Kilkenny; Connor Pain, Alessandro Diamanti, Lachlan Wales; Dylan Wenzel-Halls
