Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory: When they met this season

Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory reignite one of Australian football's great modern-day rivalries this weekend!


The two domestic powerhouses meet in the latest instalment of the ‘Big Blue’ on Saturday night and the stakes couldn't be higher.

With a place in the Hyundai A-League Grand Final up for grabs, we look back at the previous meetings between these two sides this season.


Round 1: Melbourne Victory 0 - 1 Sydney FC

An energetic Melbourne Victory couldn't quite deliver a dose of Grand Final redemption, losing 1-0 at Etihad Stadium.

A bizarre own-goal early in the second half gave the Sky Blues the lead and they held to win a cagey, even contest.



Luke Wilkshire burst down the left after some clever interplay and his superb cross found Alex Brosque.

The Sydney FC skipper scuffed his header with the ball falling to Victory's Thomas Deng who played the ball into his own net.

Round 18: Melbourne Victory 1 - 3 Sydney FC

Melbourne Victory suffered more Big Blue misery as Bobo's brace helped Sydney FC to a come-from-behind 3-1 win at AAMI Park.

Trailing to Besart Berisha's 58th-minute penalty, the Sky Blues responded in emphatic fashion, scoring three goals in the final half-hour to extend their unbeaten run against Kevin Muscat's men to two years.

Bobo netted a quickfire equaliser and struck the second from the penalty spot, with Jason Geria shown a second yellow card for bringing down the Brazilian.

David Carney added the Sky Blues' third off the bench as the champions moved nine points clear at the top.



Round 27: Sydney FC 1 - 0 Melbourne Victory

Sydney FC celebrated lifting the Hyundai A-League Premiers Plate by edging Victory 1-0 at Allianz Stadium.

Bobo netted his 27th goal of the season in just the eighth minute and it proved enough to secure the Sky Blues a seventh straight Big Blue success.

Alex Wilkinson came to the hosts' rescue either side of the winner as his two goal-line clearances held Victory scoreless for just the third time this term.

The win also saw Sydney FC match the 20 victories they accrued in finishing first last season.
