Wellington's away matches have typically seen plenty of goals but their match in Brisbane last week showed how they are changing to a more cautious approach. Against a Perth side who have plenty of absentees themselves, goals may be scarce so consider under 2.5 goals as good value in this one if you're in the betting market.

The last time these two sides met was as recently as last month and with New Zealand’s capital being the venue it was the home team who scored a flurry of goals a 5-2 win for the Phoenix.
