Wellington Phoenix will welcome Western United to Sky Stadium for a matchday 22 fixture in Australia A-League. The last meeting on 22nd April 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met five times in the most recent seasons. Wellington Phoenix has won 3 matches, and Western United triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.80 goals, while both teams score 60% of the time.

Wellington Phoenix's latest fixture against Melbourne City FC ended in an away 2-2 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair. Wellington Phoenix scored in both halves in the 37th and 88th minute.

Western United's recent game against Sydney FC ended in a home 0-1 loss. Western United's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances.

So far, Wellington Phoenix plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.54 points per away game on average compared to 1.38 points at home. Although Wellington Phoenix is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 15% home clean sheets.

Western United has picked up 0 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Western United wins 0.54 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Western United kept a clean sheet in just 15% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Wellington Phoenix is currently unbeaten at home in four games. Since the start of the season, they have just five home defeats.

Western United failed to win in seven consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Saturday and win against Wellington Phoenix. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost five consecutive games on the road.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Wellington Phoenix wins on average 1.38 points per home game, compared to 0.54 points per away game for Western United. My prediction is Wellington Phoenix to win.

Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Wellington Phoenix failed to keep a clean sheet in 15% of home games, while Western United conceded in 15% of away games. On average, both teams score in 64% of Wellington Phoenix's home and Western United's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
