Match status: 2019/20 A-League - Round 29
Kick-off:
Venue: Bankwest Stadium (Sydney)
With most European Leagues already ended, many eyes will be cast on the Australian League over the coming weeks, as football fans crave for footballing action. Surely, the league will be putting in their best effort to try to impress onlookers and indeed, the pundits.

WS Wanderers created history in their debut A-League season, winning the Premiership title as well as the AFC Champions League – the first and only Australian outfit to have clinched this continental title till date. However, WSW have looked totally out-of-sorts ever since.

They currently sit ninth on the standings, a whopping thirteen points adrift this week’s opposition on the standings. Against a title chasing side in Wellington Phoenix, Jean-Paul’s charges will need lady-luck on their side to stand any chances against these beasts. Expect an entertaining game in Sydney come kickoff.

WS Wanderers vs Wellington Phoenix Team News

Taking the whole of Asia by storm in their debut A-League season in 2014, many expected the Wanderers to usurp Sydney FC as the juggernauts in the league soon enough. However, Jean-Paul’s men have fallen short of expectations, struggling to keep up with the elites.

Having accrued a measly 27 points from 22 games, WS Wanderers sit ninth on the standings, just two spots away from the bottom of the standings. Surely, they have nothing left to play for, with the final series play-off zone already far beyond their reach.

Taking on basement club Central Coast Mariners on the last matchday, it was expected to be a stroll in the pack for the Wanderers, given they were taken on a beleaguered side. Headed into the game in high-spirits, they were forced home with a point following a drab 1-1 affair against the Mariners.

Meanwhile, Wellington Phoenix are clearly one of the better sides in the league thus far. They have been utterly ruthless, grabbing important points even against the toughest of oppositions. Having already relinquished the Premiership title to Sydney FC, the Nix will be looking to hold to second-place on the log.

With the Championship title still very much up for grabs, Wellington Phoenix will be looking to fend off threats from the likes of Melbourne City and Brisbane Roar, to retain their spot behind table-toppers Sydney FC. 

For this fixture, Wellington Phoenix have to be considered overwhelming favorites for the win. Any slip-up in this fixture could see them plummet down the standings with a host of clubs hot on their tails. Second-place guarantees automatic passage to the semifinals of the final series.

If Ufuk Talay’s charges manage to see out the rest of the regular season in second-place, they will be awarded a bye and the advantage of hosting each of the semifinals in the second week of the final series. As such, the visitors will feel extra motivated to go all out for the win here.

WS Wanderers have been woeful this season, remaining winless in each of their last four games on the bounce – three of which ended in draws. Also, they have managed a measly three wins from ten home games so far this term.
