Western Sydney Wanderers vs Wellington Phoenix
Pick: Over 2.5 Match Goals
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
- Western Sydney have lost four of their last six games
- Wellington Phoenix are unbeaten in eight games
- Eight of the last 10 games between these two sides have ended with over 2.5 goals
Both sides targeting Finals Series
Western Sydney Wanderers host Wellington Phoenix on Wednesday with both teams looking for a win to help their push to reach the Finals Series once again.
Western Sydney have struggled in recent weeks, losing four of their last six games and they find themselves three points outside the top six. Time is running out for the hosts though and they need to get some points on the board soon or risk finishing the season without Finals Series football.
Wellington Phoenix have been in good form, going eight games without a loss. They’ve only won four of those matches however and remain three points outside the top six too. They have form on their side but need to find a way to be clinical in attack to secure three points.
This match has traditionally brought goals, with eight of the last 10 games between these two sides finishing with over 2.5 goals. We think that is likely again with both of these sides seeing their games this season average three goals or more. It looks really tricky to separate these two sides however and we’re forecasting a 2-2 draw, a result that doesn’t help either side.
