Sydney thump disappointing Victory

MELvSYDSydney FC registered an emphatic victory on Sunday afternoon, thumping an embarrassing Melbourne Victory outfit 5-0 in the traditional Australia Day fixture.

Despotovic opened the scoring after just 11 minutes, followed by a period of 5 minutes where Alessandro Del Piero scored from the spot and Seb Ryall finished well into the bottom corner after a barnstorming run through a hapless Victory defence. Del Piero capitalised on a defensive howler by Coe after 54 minutes, before Nick Carle added a fifth in the 87th minute.

Adding to the Victory’s woes is a head injury to Adrian Leijer suffered in the first half, when a shot on goal struck him from close range.
