Wellington Phoenix odds: 31/20 (2.55) – 39.1%

Draw odds: 13/5 (3.60) – 22.0%

Western Sydney odds: 15/4 (4.75) – 38.9%

As you can clearly see from the odds above, there’s a 0.2% gap between the two teams’ win probabilities. Wellington Phoenix are the expected winners with a 39.1% win probability, while the visitors have 38.9%. We believe the home team will win this one, and it will be Oscar Zawada who’ll score. The odds at 187/100 (2.87) imply a solid 34.84% likelihood of success, and considering he was the top goalscorer for his team last season, we expect him to do well against Western Sydney as well.

Wellington Phoenix vs Western Sydney Lineups & Team News

Wellington Phoenix

After Wellington Phoenix thrashed Macarthur 0-3 in last week’s A-League match, Kraev and his colleagues climbed at the top of the table. We are convinced that our Wellington Phoenix vs Western Sydney predictions will surely succeed, as we have

Predicted lineup – Paulsen (GK), Wootton, Sutton, Surman, Payne, Pennington, Rufer, Old, Barbarouses, Zawada & Kraev

Western Sydney

The Wanderers lost only one of their eight matches this season. It will be difficult for Wellington Phoenix to get a result against this opponent, but not impossible. After all, Western Sydney won only one of their last three league games, and it was a narrow one-goal victory against unconvincing Adelaide on the 15th of December.

Predicted lineup – Thomas (GK), Simmons, Marcelo, Beadling, Clisby, Pierias, Brook, Hendrix, Yuel, Milanovic & Antonsson

Player to Watch: Bozhidar Kraev

You might be interested to know that Bozhidar Kraev is this campaign's top Wellington Phoenix goalscorer. The Bulgarian attacking midfielder has scored four goals and supplied teammates with two assists this season. It’s no surprise we have Bozhidar down as the player to watch in our Wellington Phoenix vs Western Sydney Wanderers prediction. After all, the Bulgarian international has been a valuable member of the first team for the past three seasons.
