Western Sydney Wanderers and Wellington Phoenix go head-to-head at the Bankwest Stadium this midweek, with the traveling side seeking a fifth straight win in their A-League H2Hs.
The hosts have played out three identical 1-1 draws in the build-up to this fixture, which now means they’ve scored under 1.5 goals in five consecutive A-League matches (W1, D3, L1). At home in A-League, the ‘Wanderers’ have won just once in their last eight outings (D4, L3), with five of those games featuring under 1.5 first-half goals and less than three at FT. Against the backdrop of recent low-scoring contests, this fixture promises a lot of action. Indeed, each of their last six top-flight H2Hs held at this venue has produced over 2.5 goals, while five saw both teams score. Interestingly, though, the majority (64.29%) of Western Sydney’s league goals scored on home soil arrived before the break (9/14).
Meanwhile, the visitors have suffered just one defeat in their last seven league matches (W5, D1), with four of those results (wins/loss) yielding at least a two-goal margin. Notably, none of Wellington’s previous six A-League trips have ended in a draw (W3, L3), with five seeing over 2.5 goals and both teams on the scoresheet. Wellington’s away action usually sparks into life after the break, with 68.57% of the goals scored/conceded on the road coming in the second half of play (24/35). Indeed, a late spectacle is to be expected, given that six of their 11 A-League trips, this term, have featured at least one goal in the final 15 minutes of play.
