Brisbane Roar vs Wellington Phoenix Match Analysis & Prediction
14/01/2023 9:00 am
Brisbane Roar will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they play host to Wellington Phoenix at Kayo Stadium on Saturday.
The vistitors currently sit seventh in the A-League standings but have the opportunity to leapfrog their opponents if they can secure three points in the game.
Brisbane Roar have endured a mixed season so far in terms of form with three wins and two defeats, but it is the six draws that have stopped them from climbing up the table.
No side in the division has been pushed to share points more times this season than them, which is something they need to turn around for the remainder of the campaign.
However, they would have gladly taken a point on Tuedsay when they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Perth Glory when an own goal from Scott Neville cost them the game.
Defensively, Brisbane Roar have conceded just five goals in their seven home matches, and they should feel confident going into this game even with the recent defeat.
However, Wellington Phoenix will be out to change all of that on Saturday, especially because they can climb the table with a victory and overtake Brisbane Roar.
Three points could as well move them as high as fourth place depending on other results, putting plenty of pressure on this particular game for the visitors.
After consecutive matches without a win, Ufuk Talay will have been pleased with his side securing a positive result in their recent game against Sydney FC, with Oskar Zawada’s 10th-minute goal proving to be the difference.

Discipline issues have rocked the visitors camp recently, and they will be without both Bozhidar Kraev and Nicholas Pennington as they are suspended.
Oskar Zawada has four goals in six matches for Wellington, and he should be bringing a lot of confidence into this game because of that.
