Sydney FC’s surge to greatness has continued with a commanding second half securing a 3-0 win over Melbourne City at Allianz Stadium on Saturday night.
Two Bobo goals either side of Alex Brosque’s 10th of the season moves Sydney within three points of surpassing Brisbane Roar’s record total for a Hyundai A-League season.
City, hoping to shore up third spot, came closest early when Bruno Fornaroli’s curling free-kick shaved the outside of the far post. Rhyan Grant almost gifted the visitors the opener with a misdirected touch soon after but the Sky Blues survived and found their best as the half wore on.
Ivan Franjic cleared a Grant chance off the line shortly after the restart before Brosque and Bobo broke the game open with two goals in seven minutes. City rarely threatened and conceded a third in stoppage time as Bobo bagged his brace, sealing the hosts’ 19th win of the season.
GOALS 1-0 Sydney: Brosque, 57’
City allowed Zullo’s long throw to bounce and Brosque stole in at the near post to sweep home a smart finish.
2-0 Sydney: Bobo, 64’ Zullo drove into space on the left and unleashed a strike across goal which Bobo stretched to tuck home at the far post.
3-0 Sydney: Bobo, 90’ David Carney steadied on the right flank, looked up and delivered an outstanding cross for Bobo to charge onto at the far post.
