Wellington to boost Finals Series hopes
Macarthur FC and Wellington Phoenix face off with some big Finals Series implications on the line.
Macarthur have already secured their place in the Finals Series in their inaugural season in the A-League. The side have been in impressive form of late and have lost just once in their last eight games, an impressive record that should give them plenty of momentum going into the end of season competition.
Wellington Phoenix sit just one place outside of the top six but a superior goal difference to Adelaide United, who are currently in 6th place, means that a win for Phoenix and a loss for Adelaide this weekend will see Wellington into the Finals Series. Wellington have gone 10 games without a loss but will need to be a bit more clinical in front of goal to achieve their goals this season.
This should be a nervy game with so much on the line for Wellington and this could lead to a lack of goals and with both of the meetings between the two sides seeing under 2.5 goals this season, we’re predicting that this game too will see a lack of goals. We think Wellington will be able to overcome the odds however and we’re forecasting a 1-0 win for the visitors.
