Brilliant team goal that and a nice finish by Ninkovic too! 3-1 game over?

Perth in the some boat as Victory atm althrough with much more upside to turn it around.

Perth unlucky and aren't a 3-1 down bad side.
But seem to have fallen in a heap after the 2nd goal.

Still enough time for a fight back though obviously hope they don't.

Great goal by Ninko and team lead up.

Not sure about that. Hoogland, Kruse and Naboott still to get fit, and Ola will always find a way to score.

Perth look a different side.

If this ref and the entire VAR team were murdered in cold blood tonight, I wouldn't even be slightly upset

So many ex-Melbourne City players going around in this game. And the interesting thing (given it's the GF rematch) is that with the exception of Fornaroli, Wilkinson and perhaps Kilkenny, they were all basically plodders with City.

I don't really remember anything about Zullo's time with MC. Ditto Franjic, I think his greatest moment as a fullback was scoring a scorching volley against WSW or someone, didn't do much else. Redmayne never kept a clean sheet in his time as a starting keeper. Retre had a contract because he could play a few roles off the bench. Caceres...meh. Brattan had his moments, but his "whoops a daisy" wry smiles when he'd blast a free kick into the second tier when City was trailing 0-2 wore pretty thin... and so on. I never would have thought you could build a champion team with these players in key roles, but there you go. Surprised Gol Gol Mehbratu and Mate Dugandzic weren't out there, figuring prominently.
