WEL vs MLC Dream11: Melbourne City’s excellent winning run was brought to an end as they went down to Western United last time out. Having won their last six, they were expected to claim another success but fell to a 2-1 loss and they will be keen to respond immediately in this clash with Wellington Phoenix. Consistency is what Phoenix are searching for as they struggle to putting winning runs or even unbeaten streaks together and having lost against Macarthur in their most recent outing, they look set to fall short once again with Melbourne able to get back to winning ways at the first time of asking.

Injury Report and Unavailability: Head coach Ufuk Talay still doesn’t have centre-back Luke De Vere back from a knee injury. Meanwhile, Liam Mcging also missed the last game with a niggle and there’s no update on his recovery yet.
Expected changes and Strategy: Jamie Maclaren has directly contributed to at least one goal in his last eight appearances, with 13 goal involvements in total during that span. He should be the main bet here.
