Ufuk Talay's Wellington Phoenix have seen their goal attempts be successful a total of 9 times in the course of their previous six matches. The overall goals that they have conceded during those matches adds up to 9.

Coming into this meeting, Wellington Phoenix haven't beaten Melbourne City when they've played them away from home in the last 10 league games. An awful away record.

↔️ Head to head

A glance at their prior head to head clashes going back to 21/04/2019 shows that Melbourne City have won 3 of these games and Wellington Phoenix 2, with the tally of drawn results being 1.

There were also plenty of goals scored in those games, 26 in total at an average of 4.33 goals per meeting.

ℹ️ Team News: Melbourne City

Aiden O'Neill (Metatarsal Fracture) and Florin Bérenguer (Hamstring Injury) will not be taking part for Melbourne City manager Patrick Kisnorbo.

It seems likely that City could use the 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, handing starts to Thomas Glover, Carl Jenkinson, Nuno Reis, Rostyn Griffiths, Scott Jamieson, Taras Gomulka, Conor Metcalfe, Andrew Nabbout, Marco Tilio, Matthew Leckie and Jamie Maclaren.

🗞️ Team News: Wellington Phoenix

Wellington Phoenix manager Ufuk Talay has to currently contend with reduced team options. Clayton Lewis (Torn Ligament) and Alex Rufer (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) can’t be considered.

From our viewpoint, The Nix appear most likely to elect for a 3-4-3 lineup by sending out Oliver Sail, Finn Surman, Scott Wootton, Tim Payne, Ben Waine, Nicholas Pennington, Jackson Manuel, Sam Sutton, Riley Bidois, Gary Hooper and Benjamin Old.

🔮 Prediction

We’re of the opinion that Melbourne City will, in all likelihood, be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.

However, Wellington Phoenix could well struggle getting on the scoresheet but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be pulling one back during this clash, too.

We’re predicting a decent 3-1 victory for Melbourne City after 90 minutes.
