GALLERY: Sky Blues' 5th Straight #SydneyDerby Win
Check out Jaime Castaneda's (@jamcas50) and @_FCBaller_'s shots from our #SydneyDerby clash at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.
Sydney FC have recorded their fifth straight victory in the #SydneyDerby after coming from behind to beat Western Sydney 3-1 in a gripping and wet clash at ANZ Stadium.
n a pulsating first half it was the cross-town rivals who took the lead through the slightest of touches from Riera off a free kick midway through the half.
Three minutes later Janjetovic had a handball howler, getting caught out of position and tipping the ball away for a corner from Le Fondre’s shot when outside the box. He is promptly shown the red card.
It gave the Sky Blues the upper hand and they restored parity through captain Brosque on the stroke of halftime after a brilliant Brillante run.
Corica’s men continued in the same vain in the second half and took the lead through Dutchman De Jong finishing well at close range from a corner.
The result was put beyond doubt ten minutes from time as Sky Blue debutant Tratt thumped his header into the top right to send the Sydney FC faithful into raptures.
