Spoils shared in absorbing Sydney Derby

The Sydney Derby has ended in a stalemate for the first time after Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers fought out a 0-0 draw at Allianz Stadium on Saturday night.

In front of over 40,000 fans, the crosstown rivals cancelled each other out despite opportunities at either end throughout a hard-fought contest.

Both sides enjoyed their own moments of ascendency but were denied by top-class shot-stopping from their respective goalkeepers.

Under heavy scrutiny from the home fans, Wanderers’ Vedran Janjetovic kept his club’s first clean sheet of the season against the side he departed just last month.

Danny Vukovic was just as influential with his late double save preserving a point for the Sky Blues, who remain unbeaten and move five points clear of Melbourne Victory.

For the first time the Harbour City’s hottest ticket ended scoreless, though not through a lack of desire to make headlines.

Encouraged by both sets of fans, the crosstown rivals combined for 13 shots but found each other’s goalkeepers in inspired form.


With all eyes on his opposite number, Danny Vukovic proved his worth in the 81st minute with a crucial double-save just as Wanderers looked set to break the deadlock.
