Perth Glory were beaten by Sydney last week but while they rested a number of players, they still produced a reasonably good display. They welcome a Wellington side who face the incredibly long trip West and the home side have to be favoured to end the regular season on a high note.
Melbourne Victory have had to contend with AFC Champions League commitments this week and that may see them deprioritise this match. Western Sydney Wanderers are unbeaten in their last four at home and they could get a result in what is ultimately a meaningless game for both teams.
It has been a hugely disappointing season for Newcastle Jets after such a positive one in 2018. They hammered Brisbane Roar 6-1 last week and can take advantage of Sydney's fatigue after a midweek trip to China to end the regular season with a win in what could be a high-scoring match.
It has been something of a stuttering end to the season for Melbourne City and they will want to produce a good performance before the play-offs begin. Against a Mariners team that has been woeful on their travels, City can build some momentum here by taking all three points.
Brisbane's season has been petering out badly in recent weeks but the appointment of Robbie Fowler as their new manager for next season may spark a reaction here. Defensively, they remain woeful however and while they may raise their game, they will still likely ship plenty of goals here.
Melbourne City's away form has been poor in recent weeks having lost five of their last seven road trips. They make the long trip to Wellington here against a Phoenix team that are strong at home, and the hosts will be confident of picking up all three points.
Neither of these teams has anything but pride to play for and planning has already started for next season which could see changes to their regular starting line-ups. Brisbane Roar's matches often contain plenty of goals, while the Jets have an excellent record in Brisbane which may continue here.
Despite having plenty of their regular starters available, the Mariners' difficult season cannot end quick enough for them as they continue to lose match after match. While the Wanderers equally have nothing to play for, they are ending the season with some good displays which gives them the edge.
There is every chance that these two teams could meet in the play-offs so it will be interesting to see how both teams approach this. Rotations are likely but Victory have the greater quality and depth, and they are favoured in a game which could see plenty of goals at both ends of the pitch.
Perth Glory sealed the Premiers' Plate week with their win over Newcastle Jets but they will rest some of their key players now ahead of the knockout round. There is a chance that Sydney will rest one or two like Brosque also, but they will still field a strong enough side to win this game.
Perth Glory bounced back to winning ways last weekend and they will look to carry some momentum from the regular season into the knockout phase. They are formidable at home but after losing their last match at HBF Park, they will expect to take all three points against the Jets here.
This match should be a home win on paper but Victory have had a long trip to China in midweek for the AFC Champions League. That could see them de-prioritise this match and give the Mariners an opportunity to compete well so expect plenty of goals at both ends of the pitch here.
There have been signs in the last couple of weeks of Sydney FC regaining their focus and form in the A-League. Despite the distraction of the AFC Champions League in midweek, they will be keen to continue this run and pick up another win against this average Western Sydney Wanderers side.
Adelaide leapfrogged Melbourne City last weekend but both teams are comfortably in a play-off place now with Newcastle Jets needing a miracle. The hosts are unbeaten in their last 10 league matches at home and will be keen to continue establishing AAMI Park as something of a fortress.
