GALLERY: Sky Blues’ Historic #SydneyDerby


Check out Jaime Castaneda’s (@jamcas50) shots from our historic SCG #SydneyDerby on Saturday.

Sydney FC defeated cross-town rivals Western Sydney 2-0 in a blockbuster match at the historic Sydney Cricket Ground.

The wait was short for the first A-League goal at the SCG as Le Fondre kept his composure to follow up on his own shot and tap home to the joy of the Sky Blues faithful.

Sydney FC came closest to extending the lead before half time through captain Brosque on two occasions as the home side went into the break a goal to the good.

The Sky Blues doubled the lead as early in the second half as Ninkovic capitalised on a defensive error playing in Brosque and he hit the ball low and hard past a helpless Janjetovic.

Western Sydney responded quickly before VAR spotted a player in an offside position block Zullo in the lead up. Opposition manager Babel was incensed by the decision and shown red by the official.

Corica’s men held strong for the remainder of the match.
