Hyundai A-League classic clash: Sky Blues overpower City
Melbourne City host Sydney FC in a blockbuster battle in the Hyundai A-League on Saturday night, with Warren Joyce’s in-form side looking to halt the Sky Blues juggernaut.
There’s always a bit of feeling when these two sides meet and it was a similar affair when they went head-to-head late last season.
Ahead of the weekend’s clash, we’re looking back at what unfolded in Round 25 of the 2016/17 Season.
And it turned out to be another big win for Graham Arnold’s side as they ran riot after the break at Allianz Stadium.
After scores were level heading into the second half, two goals to Bobo after skipper Alex Brosque scored his 10th of the season secured yet another three points in a record-breaking campaign for the Sky Blues.
City’s best chance came early on when Bruno Fornaroli’s curling free-kick shaved the outside of the far post.
But there would be no stopping Sydney FC who cruised to their 19th victory of what turned out to be a double-winning season for the club.
