Western Sydney Wanderers vs. Wellington Phoenix
May 26th 7:05pm
Western Sydney open its arms to welcome Wellington Phoenix to Bankwest Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Wanderers fell short in the Sydney Derby after conceding a 62nd minute goal and as a result have plummeted to ninth on the table and in grave danger of missing out on finals.
Wellington, meanwhile, continued its unbeaten run with a 3-0 thumping of Western United last weekend.
After Clayton Lewis scored the go-ahead goal in the 38th minute, Wellington made sure it put the game to rest thanks to goals from Rene Piscopo and Tomer Hemed.
The win saw Phoenix snatch eighth spot off the Wanderers.
Both teams need to win this game in order to give themselves a chance to make the finals if other results go their way.
A 4-3 triumph to the Wanderers over the Phoenix back on March 15 might just prove the confidence boosting memory the home team need in order to win.

Macarthur Fc vs. Central Coast Mariners
May 27th 7:05pm
Fifth-placed Macarthur FC host fourth-placed Central Coast in a match that will have direct implications on the final top six positions heading into finals.
It’s been a season exceeding expectations for both the newly inaugurated Bulls and last year’s wooden spoon recipient Central Coast.
The Bulls remain undefeated in their last six fixtures with the most impressive of those results being a 1-1 against newly crowned premier Melbourne City.
Ante Milicic’s men could only muster up a 1-1 draw against Perth Glory but it has been their ability to mitigate poor performance that sees them poised for a finals berth.
Central Coast, meanwhile, started the season on fire after rocketing to the summit of the league but have since cooled the jets.
The Mariners battled hard against Melbourne City last Saturday but would end up going down 1-0.
Alen Stajic’s squad spent more time in possession against the highly-fancied City which is a sign of their structure holding up well.
The visitors already a boast a double set of 2-0 wins against the Bulls this season but still come up the outsiders in this one.
Prediction: Macarthur FC 1 Central Coast Mariners 2
Suggested Bet: Central Coast Mariners head to head at $2.75
