Wellington Phoenix odds: 87/100 (1.87) – 53.1%

Draw odds: 31/10 (4.10) – 22.9%

Western United odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 24.0%

Wellington Phoenix are the expected winners in this clash, as coach Talay’s boys have a 53.1% win probability at 87/100 (1.87), but seeing as this is a first-against-last match, we believe that we will see Wellington Phoenix/Wellington Phoenix this week.

Wellington Phoenix vs Western United Lineups & Team News

Wellington Phoenix

After the difficult home game against 2022/23 A-League Champions Central Coast Mariners, coach Talay’s players will be able to catch their breath against Western United. It’s a David vs Goliath battle that we will see at Wellington Regional Stadium this week, as the home team is at the top of the table, with barely two matches lost this season.

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

Western United

Western United’s 2023/24 A-League tally consists of two victories, two draws, and a whopping 10 matches lost. Coach Aloisi’s boys will have to work extra hard to prove our Wellington Phoenix vs Western United predictions wrong this week, as the class difference between the two teams is staggering at the moment.

Predicted lineup – Redmayne (GK), Girdwood-Reich, Grant, Lacerda, Courtney-Perkins, Brattan, Hollman, Cacers, Lolley, Burgess & Gomes

Player to Watch: Kosta Barbarouses

We had Kosta Barbarouses among the starters for coach Talay in the last couple of Wellington Phoenix games. We should see him leading the home team’s attack at Wellington Regional Stadium this week as well.

Kosta Barbarouses is the player to watch in our Wellington Phoenix vs Western United prediction, as he’s the key finisher for his team, outscoring Oscar Zawada. With eight goals to his name in the 2023/24 A-League campaign, Barbarouses now has a three-goal lead on Zawada.
