Wellington Phoenix (WEL) will go up against Sydney FC (SYD) in the upcoming game of the A-League on Saturday, January 2 at 11:35 AM IST. The game will be played at the Wollongong Showground in Wollongong, Australia. Here is our Wellington Phoenix vs Sydney FC prediction, information on how to watch Wellington Phoenix vs Sydney FC live in India and where to catch Wellington Phoenix vs Sydney FC live scores.
Both the teams have enjoyed a good year and would like to start their A-League run with a win. Wellington Phoenix have almost completely revamped their squad and will want their new recruits to prove themselves against the defending champions on Saturday. Sydney FC will enter the Wollongong Showground with almost the same squad. However, with the departure of star striker Adam Le Fondre, Sydney are in the need of a new talisman.
Considering Sydney FC are the defending champions and have a strong line-up, they are our pick to win the A-League match.
