Wellington vs Melbourne V. by Dajkula

Wellington Phoenix welcomes Melbourne Victory in the ninth round clash of the A league. This match is not played in Wellington but on the ground of the New Zealand Knights in Auckland. Here Wellington will play their next 2 "home" matches. Wellington is 7`th in the league with 11 points while Victory is first with 16 points. Wellington has been unconsistent all season long but show good performances at home where they play very open football. They lost to Newcastle 1:2 while have won over Adelaide 4:2 and strong Brisbane 3:2. With only 3 home matches played out of 8 we find a good reason for their lower place on the table. Away from home Wellington has 1-2-2 and 4:7 goal difference.


Melbourne Victory is in great form and have won the last 4 matches in the league and 6 in all competitions. Berisha has found his shooting boots and has scored 5 goals in the last 3 league matches. He did especially well in the last meetings against Wellington. They will be a tough matchup for the hosts though as they won 11 of the last 13 mutual matches.


Victory will be missing George HOWARD (att.5-0), Carl VALERI (att.4-0), Scott GALLOWAY (def.0-0), Nick ANSELL (def.0-0), Archie THOMPSON (att.0-0).


The hosts have important Ben Sigmund(def.7-0) questionable while mid. Vince Lia(5-1) is back from injury.


This isn`t really a home match for Wellington while Victory is in very good form lately and does very well against the hosts. I think they will take another win here.
