Both teams have made somewhat different starts to the current campaign heading into their first encounter of 2023 whice promises to be an exciting watch nonetheless.

Wellington Phoenix had to make do with a share of the points in Friday’s game against Perth Glory at the Macedonia Park which ended in a 1-1 draw.

The Yellow Army trailed to David Williams’ 22nd-minute opener but wasted no time in drawing level, as Oskar Zawada scored barely nine miutes later.

With 11 points collected from nine league matches so far, Ufuk Talay’s side sit eighth in the standings, although only one point adrift of the final playoff place.

Unbeaten in six of their last seven home matches heading into Monday’s fixture, the hosts have proven themselves to be a tough team to beat in front of their supporters.

Melbourne City managed to get the better of Central Coast Mariners in a 1-0 victory when the sides met at the AAMI Park on Tuesday.

The Cityzens went into half time with a one-goal lead through Jamie Maclaren’s opener, before holding firm in the second half to come away with all three points.

As a result, Rado Vidosic’s side have now moved four points clear of Western Sydney Wanderers at the top of the A-League table with a game in hand.

Up next is a sixth encounter in the space of one year against an opposing side who have won and lost two matches apiece from the previous five meetings.

Melbourne City Team News

Following his winner last time out, Jamie Maclaren is now up to 10 league goals for Melbourne City this season, at least five more than any other player in the A-League.

Thirty-three-year-old Florin Berenguer remains without an appearance for the visitors due to a muscle injury which he sustained back in August.
