THE PREDICTION

Perth Glory are one team who have suffered the most of all the top six teams due to the pandemic as they have lost some key players. Their performance levels have also dipped significantly as they have lost four of their last five games and conceded 14 goals in the process. That was partially down to the fact they had pretty much qualified for the play-offs but it is not ideal form to come into the post-season. They face a Wellington Phoenix team that has a real determination to go far this year. They have enjoyed an excellent season and despite being without injured star striker Hooper, they are less impacted from the pandemic compared to Perth. Combined with their motivation, the team news tips it in Wellington’s favour and they should have the edge in several departments to progress.
