The A-League is back in action with another round of matches this week as Melbourne City lock horns with Wellington Phoenix on Monday. Both teams have been impressive this season and will want to win this game.

Wellington Phoenix are in sixth place in the A-League standings and have been fairly inconsistent this month. The away side edged Western Sydney Wanderers to a 2-1 victory last week and will need to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

Melbourne City, on the other hand, are in second place in the league table at the moment and have been exceptional this season. The reigning champions suffered a shock 2-0 defeat at the hands of Perth Glory in their previous game and will need to bounce back this week.
