Deng It! Victory Own Goal Hands Sydney FC 5th Straight Big Blue Win.

Sydney FC have started this A-Leauge season off with a hard fought 1-0 Win against Melbourne Victory at Etihad Stadium.


Melboure Victory started the match off applying high pressure onto the defending premiers Sydney FC but were unable to capatalise early. Both sides were missing key players for the highly anticipated derby due to International Selection, but Sydney Fc finished off the first half strongly holding 62% of Possession.


Both A-Leauge heavyweights looked to score early in the second half as Sky Blues striker Bobo blasted a shot over the crossbar in the 50th minute.


In the 53rd minute Melbourne Victory conceded an unfortunate own goal after Luke Wilkshire left footed cross deflected into the back of the net off Melbourne defender Thomas Deng.


Melbourne Victory continued to press up on Sydney Fc’s defense, with one of Besart Berisha’s shots deflecting wide of the goal.


In the end the Sky Blues defense held on to secure a first round victory and extended their Big Blue win record to 5 in a row.

Final Score Melbourne Victory 0- Sydney Fc 1- A-Leauge Round 1.
