MLC vs SYD: Melbourne City FC will host the five-time champions Sydney FC in the summit clash of the A-League. The match will take place at the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.
Melbourne City seeking revenge after losing to Sydney in last year’s championship decider. They will look to take full advantage of their opponent as they are playing at home.
Melbourne City found a place in the final owing to a 2-0 victory over the Mcarthur Bulls. The first half of the match saw no goals from either of the side. In the second half, Stefan Colakovski and Marco Tilio found the net and guided the City home with full points.
Meanwhile, Sydney FC defeated Adelaide United 2-1 in their semi-final fixture. Former Mumbai City FC striker Adam Le Fondre and Bobo netted in a goal each for the former side early during the first half. A late goal from the latter side couldn’t see them get back on track as they missed out on making it to the final clash of the season.
With both the teams being in sublime touch, it’s expected to be one exhilarating final in Melbourne.
