Melbourne Victory v Wellington Phoenix – Monday 08:50, BT Sport 2
After just one point from their first two, including a heavy 4-1 defeat in the Melbourne derby, Victory picked up their first win of the season as they won 2-1 at champions Adelaide thanks to a late Rojas winner. Wellington have lost all three games so far and have failed to score, though they’ve proved competitive as they’ve conceded just four goals.
The defeat against City means that Victory have won just one of their last seven at home, having won six of their first seven last term. However, they were pretty reliable against the lesser sides as they went W3-D2-L0 at home to sides that finished below them last term, though only one of these victories was by more than one goal.
Wellington have now lost their last seven going back to the end of last season and they’ve also lost 10 of their 15 road games since the start of last term. Victory have kept clean sheets in their last three home wins and since Phoenix have scored just one goal in their last six, we’re backing Victory to win to nil at 3.3.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
