Macarthur vs Wellington Phoenix Prediction:

Macarthur FC reached the quarter-finals after two big wins in the Australia Cup, 4-0 against Modbury and 6-0 against Magpies Crusaders. However, those wins were against lower-tier teams. Macarthur will play their real test tonight against the Phoenix.

Moreover, Macarthur missed out on last season’s A-League playoffs taking only a point from their last four games.

Elsewhere, the Phoenix put up a good show against Melbourne City to beat them 2-1 last round. We predict they will continue their Australia Cup run with a win tonight.
