Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
On the plus side for Melbourne City, they will be buzzing after their dramatic win over Western Sydney on Tuesday and will have an extra day of rest compared to their opponents.
On the down side they do have to travel over to Wellington and there is a real sense of belief around this side.
A lot has changed since City’s 2-0 win at AAMI Park in early November, most obviously the Nix have gotten a lot better.
Last time Wellington hosted City they won 2-1 in the final round of last season and look like the better side here.
A Nix win is the recommended play but adding in a total goals double is certainly an enticing value play.
