Wellington Phoenix are one of only two teams to have not kept an A-League clean sheet this season.

Wellington Phoenix have the worst defence in the division, conceding 17 goals in their first seven matches - an average of 2.42 goals against per game.

Andrija Kaluderovic is Wellington’s top league goalscorer at present with five goals, making him the joint second highest scorer in the competition this season. He has been responsible for 42% of the Phoenix’s league goals.

The Phoenix have the joint third best record in the A-League when it comes to goals, averaging 1.71 goals per game.

All of Wellington Phoenix’s points have come at home this season; they are yet to pick up a point on Australian soil.

Melbourne Victory are the joint lowest scorers in the A-League with only nine goals from their first eight matches - an average of 1.13 goals per game.

Melbourne Victory have drawn four of their last six A-League matches, although those four draws came in succession.

Besart Berisha and Leroy George are the joint top scorers for Melbourne Victory this season with three goals each. They are responsible for 66.6% of the Victory’s A-League goals in this campaign.

Halloween 2016 was certainly a shocker for Wellington Phoenix as they travelled to Melbourne to face the Victory and were dealt a heavy 6-1 defeat for their efforts, making the long trip back to New Zealand one to forget.
