Victory for Melbourne City FC

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Melbourne City’s reign as FFA Cup holders ended in lacklustre fashion as Sydney FC eased to a 2-0 quarter-final victory at Leichhardt Oval on Wednesday.

Goals early in each half from Jordy Buijs and Alex Brosque sealed a deserved victory for a Sky Blues side who are chasing a maiden Cup win to add to last year’s A-League crown.

There were few signs of a repeat of last season’s well-matched and occasionally tempestuous final between the two sides.

Sydney FC largely dominated the contest although genuine goalscoring opportunities largely remained at a premium in front of a pre-season crowd of 4,102.

Buijs set Sydney FC on their way with a perfectly delivered free-kick from 20 metres after just seven minutes.
