KICK off: 24 March 10:05
Team news: Wellington Phoenix will remain without centre-back Luke DeVere, who has missed the last six games with a long-term knee injury. In his absence, Tim Payne and Liam McGing have paired up at the back, keeping three clean sheets in their last five games. Tomer Hemed will lead the line for Talay’s men, having found the net in each of his last two games. He will be supported by the attacking threat of Ulises Davila, who tops their scoring charts with four league goals so far this season. Melbourne Victory remain weakened by several injuries, as defenders Ryan Shotton and Dylan Ryan both continue spells on the sidelines. They will also be without centre-back Leigh Broxham, who will serve a suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season last time out. It is not just the defence that has been hit though, as attacker Marco Rojas is also out of contention due to injury.
Prediction: Over 2,5 goals
