Brisbane Roar made the play-offs last season. Things are a lot tougher for the Lions at the moment. The team is still in eleventh place, which, of course, is not very encouraging. The problem is that the team’s defensive performance is poor. In the last round, Brisbane Roar lost 2-3 at home to Western United.
Wellington Phoenix are the only team from New Zealand to play in Australia. Not just playing, but performing excellently at times. At the moment, the Phoenix are in seventh position in the table. In the last round, however, the team managed to pull themselves together and beat Perth Glory 2-1 at home.
Statistics of head-to-head encounters
If you look at the last five matches, you can see that each team has one win each. However, they have drawn three more times. At the same time, both victories were won on home soil. The last time an away team beat an opponent was back in 2017, when the Phoenix won 2-1.
Brisbane Roar vs Wellington Phoenix forecast and betting. Outcome cf. 1,91
Last time Brisbane Roar won on home soil with a score of 2-1. Now the club is obviously the favourite again. This is largely a factor of their field, no matter how you look at it, Wellington Phoenix has trouble performing outside of New Zealand. Here, on the other hand, it looks to me like things are going to be pretty curious. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet application.
Therefore, my prediction for this match is Total more (2.5) at odds of 1.91.
