Western United vs Wellington Phoenix match information

Time: 14:00 (GMT+8) on December 28th

Venue: Mars Stadium

‎‎Competition: A-League

Standing in the third position after playing eleven matches, Western United currently has a good chance to take second place from Melbourne City FC if they win.

It is not a hard task for coach Mark Rudan and Western United players, especially when they are playing with an impressive form since starting this season. Unlike the previous years, Western United has all the conditions to compete for the A-League champion.

Moreover, the point difference between Western United and lower-place teams also helps them concentrate on racing for the first place. Compared to Western United, Wellington Phoenix's form in the latest five matches is better, with three victories and two draws.

However, it does not mean they can tackle Western United on an away game. Unlike other A-League teams, Wellington Phoenix is the only football club located in New Zealand, so they need to travel constantly. As a result, their performance is also affected.

On the other hand, Western United always play with their best strength each time they play at the Mars Stadium, so they can take advantage of it to gain three points easily. Beating Wellington Phoenix is something that they can do at the moment, so they need to concentrate to make it right.
