Brisbane Roar make the trip to Sky Stadium on Wednesday for the A-League showdown with home team Wellington Phoenix.
Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Wellington Phoenix v Brisbane Roar match are shown here (inc. the best betting odds).
Wellington Phoenix will be looking for an improved result here following a 1-0 A-League loss in their previous game against Western Sydney Wanderers.
Kwame Yeboah (74') scored for Western Sydney Wanderers.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games where Wellington Phoenix have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that The Nix have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 7 goals on the way. Putting that to one side, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend might be maintained in this upcoming game.
Going into this one, Wellington Phoenix are undefeated in their previous 10 home league matches. A run that they'll hope to extend here.
Brisbane Roar will go into the clash following a 1-2 A-League win to defeat Melbourne Victory in their most recent game.
For Brisbane Roar, the scorers were Scott McDonald (56') and Matthew Ridenton (78'). Andrew Nabbout (86') scored for Melbourne Victory.
A sequence of hard-working displays from the Brisbane Roar defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their past 6 clashes combined. Over that same period, their own attack force has managed to score 7.
Heading into this fixture, Brisbane Roar haven't won against Wellington Phoenix when having played them away from home in the previous 4 league games. Not good.

Team News: Wellington Phoenix
There’s just one fitness concern for the Wellington Phoenix gaffer Ufuk Talay to be concerned about from an otherwise complete group of players. Oskar van Hattum (Metatarsal Fracture) won’t play.
Team News: Brisbane Roar
With a completely injury-free group to choose from, Brisbane Roar manager Darren Davies does not have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash.
We’re of the view that Brisbane Roar and Wellington Phoenix might both not be able to do quite enough to get on the scoresheet here.
It’s looking like it could well end up as a draw. We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even match with a 0-0 scoreline at the end of the 90 minutes.
