Wellington Phoenix managed to get back to winning ways last weekend with their comprehensive 3-0 victory over Central Coast Mariners. This followed on from back to back defeats in the Hyundai A-League, but their record of three wins in their last five matches is a huge improvement on the beginning of the season.
The hosts kicked off the campaign with five straight defeats in the league and only scored one goal in that period, whereas since then they have pushed themselves up to 8th in the table and scored eight times in five matches.
This has largely been thanks to the return to form of star striker Roy Krishna. The 29 year old has netted six goals this season, with all of those coming in the last six matches and him only failing to score in one of these. He looks the best choice for an anytime goalscorer predictions.
Western Sydney Wanderers have their own star man in 34 year old Brendon Santaleb. The Australian striker has notched five times in nine games this season, and he has only started in four of those games. He’s another good choice for an anytime goalscorer backing, considering Western Sydney Wanderers have only failed to score in three of their ten league matches this season.
The visitors problems lie in other areas though. They lost 3-0 at home to Melbourne Victory last time out to make it one win, five draws, and two defeats in their last eight outings. This lack of winning spirit leaves them 6th in the A-League table.
Interestingly both of these victories have come away from home, with Adelaide United and Central Coast Mariners both falling victim to an improved away record. They have only lost one of their four trips away so far this season.
Western Sydney Wanderers have conceded in all of these games though, and they have seen at least three goals in all of them too. In fact, home and away they have been involved in high scoring games 70% of the time this season, so with this taken into consideration I think odds of 20/21 for Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score at good value for money. I’m backing a 2-2 correct score predictions at 10/1 too.
