Wellington Phoenix will host Adelaide United in what’s set to be another cracking clash in the opening round of the A-League season. The Phoenix will go into the game as slight favourites but United’s recent form has proven them to be a tough side to face. View our Wellington Phoenix vs Adelaide United match preview.
When: 15:05 | Sunday 08/10/2017
Where: Westpac Stadium
Two teams who finished in the bottom half of the competition have a prime opportunity to get the new campaign off to a bright start when they clash in Wellington.
Both however, will be missing key personnel with the Phoenix without a trio of All Whites in Michael McGlinchey, Thomas Doyle and Andrew Durante and the visiting Reds without the suspended Vince Lia and injured defender Tarek Elrich.
Daunting road trip for the Reds, who finished just one point ahead of the last placed Newcastle Jets last season.
Despite missing their international contingent, the Phoenix will rise to the occasion in their first home game of the season.
Wellington at $2.50
Draw at $3.55
Adelaide United at $2.80
Tip: Wellington at $2.50
