Sydney FC remain one of the teams to beat in the E-League after strengthening their grip at the top of the table in Round 4.
Mark 'xMarkoHD' Brijevski and Samer 'Samer96_' Elbadar put in impressive performances to earn a 5-3 aggregate win over the Wellington Phoenix on Thursday evening.

Samer wrapped up proceedings with a 3-2 victory, coming back from a goal down to put in a comfortable shift and lead 3-1 before a late Phoenix goal ensured a dramatic closing few minutes.

Xbox: Samer 'Samer96_' Elbadar 3-2 Justin 'justmanutd12' Josevski
Samer Elbadar wrapped up Sydney FC's aggregate success by seeing off Justin Josevski 3-2 on Xbox.
Nathan Burns tucked away Phoenix's first in the ninth minute, though the lead was erased by the Sky Blues moments later.
Elbadar then completed the quickfire turnaround by punishing an error and rammed home the advantage with a third after the restart.
That gave Josevski a mountain to climb and, although he pulled one back, it was little more than a consolation as Phoenix were left still searching for a maiden point.
