Preview:

Gary Hooper’s quick-fire brace in the second half gave the Kiwi outfit a sniff, but defence let them down after conceding three goals just once previously this season. The defeat was Wellington’s second in three games since their record-equalling nine-game unbeaten run.

The Phoenix have won six and drawn one of their last seven at home and are taking this clash to Eden Park, where they put away Wanderers 2-1 in December.

Melbourne City FC hung onto second spot via a 2-1 derby win over the Victory last Friday. Florin Berenguer and Jamie Maclaren were City’s goal-scorers in a vital result. They are aiming to snap a three-game winless run on the road, losing 3-1 in Adelaide in Week 18.

The teams’ last seven encounters were won by the home team – including City FC’s 3-2 victory in Melbourne in Week 4.

Melbourne City last won in New Zealand in February 2017. Wellington look a good bet as narrow outsiders.
