Sydney FC have proven why they’re confident of going back-to-back with a dominant 5-0 victory over their rivals Western Sydney Wanderers at ANZ Stadium.
Adrian Mierzejewski produced a quality performance and scored two first half goals in the win. Captain Alex Brosque, Brandon O’Neill, and an own goal to Lachlan Scott completed the rout.
WESTERN SYDNEY WANDERERS
Vedran Janjetovic (GK) – 6
Did his best to keep out the first, got rounded by Brosque for the second, couldn’t have done much to stop Mierzejewski’s free-kick. Made a number of great saves in the second.
Brendan Hamill – 4
Ineffectual going forward, afforded Sydney too much space on his right flank.
Jonathan Aspropotamitis – 6
Passed well and accurately and was forced into a handful of clearances. Couldn’t do much to prevent Sydney’s attacking barrage. Made a crucial block to deny Bobo in stoppage time.
Robbie Cornthwaite – 4
Looked nervous in the first half, made a few errors at the back. Received a late booking.
Jack Clisby – 3
Got caught out of position many times, and conceded a handful of fouls.
