Phoenix succumb to weather and Wanderers in 3-0 defeat

Results didn’t go Wellington Phoenix’s way on the weekend as the football team were soundly beaten 3-0 at home by Western Sydney Wanderers.

The Westpac Stadium game was the Phoenix’s first defeat of the A-league 2018/19 season.

The tough weather conditions had an effect on both teams with long passes going astray for the majority of the game.

Western Sydney made the plays however, with goals to Alexander Baumjohann and Roy Krishna in the first half, and Riera Magem in the second.

The Phoenix’s next game is against Melbourne City at AAMI Park Melbourne City on Friday 9 November, 9:50pm NZT.
