Our prediction for this A League match:
All eyes will be on Bankwest Stadium when Wellington Phoenix and Perth Glory face each other in the A-League playoffs quarter-finals. The Nix aim to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Newcastle Jets, but given their form in the regular season finale, we are not tempted to put our money on the nominal hosts. Wellington Phoenix failed to win the previous four league fixtures, but they could take advantage of Perth Glory’s shaky defence.
Tony Popovic’s men have been struggling at the back of late, but given their attacking potential, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score. In their last encounter in the Australian top flight Wellington Phoenix defeated Perth Glory 2-1, and you should bear in mind that 20 goals in total have been netted in the previous five meetings between the two clubs.
