Wellington vs Brisbane: Top Free Betting Tips
Wellington Phoenix desperately need three points to cement their place in the playoffs in the next game against Brisbane Roar. Both teams face off against each other in Round 24 of A-League at Sky Stadium on Sunday, 16 April. The Nix have a losing sequence before this game while the Lions managed to defeat Newcastle Jets.
Match Result Prediction: Wellington to Win
Wellington Phoenix have tasted three consecutive defeats coming into this match but have a different sequence at Sky Stadium. The Nix have lost only one of the previous five home games and recorded three victories. On the other hand, Brisbane Roar have been dismal on road fixtures and lost six of the last seven away adventures. The Yellow Army have also won three of the previous four meetings with the Lions. Therefore, we set Wellington as our favourites to take the lead in this game.
Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes
Wellington Phoenix have secured a brilliant scoring string by hitting the back of the net in all home games this season. However, the Nix have claimed only one clean sheet in the same duration. Brisbane have also scored in all of the previous five fixtures away from Kayo Stadium, despite going on a winless run. Four of the last five meetings between these clubs at Sky Stadium have featured BTTS outcomes. Given the current statistics, we can expect goals from both ends of the field on Sunday as well.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Wellington
Brisbane Roar have managed to score only one goal per game in four of the previous five road fixtures. Roar’s defence has also been a major weakness for them as they conceded 12 goals in the same duration. On the other hand, Wellington Phoenix have succeeded to score at least twice in three of the previous five games at Sky Stadium. The Nix have also rattled the net 11 times in the same number of home games against Brisbane Roar. Hence, we predict the Yellow Army to earn a 2-1 lead before the referee blows his full-time whistle.
Wellington vs Brisbane: Form, Recent Games, and News
The Nix visited league leaders Melbourne City in the last game and got thrashed by a 4-1 defeat. Steven Ugarkovic scored an equaliser four minutes after the break City’s Jamie’s second and Marco Tilio’s brace made more changes to the scoreline. With all players fit and available, manager Ufuk Talay will be completely focused on steering the team back on a winning track.

The victory has helped Brisbane jump to the eighth position from the second-last spot. Robbie Kruse is a lone fitness issue for manager Nick Green when the Lions aim to continue their progress on the table.
