Adelaide United will host Wellington Phoenix in the Australian A-League. Will the guests continue the win-win streak?
"Adelaide" recently claimed the first place, and now occupies only the fourth position, with 31 points. After a brisk performance at the start of the season, the team faced difficulties in terms of winning results. In the previous six games, Victoria was only one-3-1 over MacArthur ,and in addition to it there were two defeats of 1-2 against Central Coast Mariners and Wellington Phoenix, as well as three world outcomes: 1-1 against Western Sydney Wanderers, 2-2 against Sydney FC and 0-0 against Western United.
"Wellington Phoenix" in the previous round played 0-0 with "Brisbane Roar", which extended the unbeaten streak to five matches. They had three wins and two draws. Thanks to a streak of positive results, Wellington Phoenix has moved closer to the playoff zone and is three points behind it. The away team does not win often, but it has also become less common to lose-in the five extreme away games, two wins, two draws and one loss.
Statistics and figures:
- Adelaide United have won one of their last six games;
- "Wellington Phoenix" does not lose for five matches;
- Adelaide United have beaten Wellington Phoenix in one of their previous five games.
There is a possibility that in the case of a set of three points, Wellington will be able to enter the playoff zone, for the first time this season. "Adelaide" is now in a crisis, it seems that after an active start to the championship, it is exhausted and needs a break, and this can play into the hands of the accelerated "Phoenix". I believe that the guests have excellent chances to extend the winless streak, so I suggest playing their victory with a handicap of 0.
