Sydney FC will face NPL Victoria side Bentleigh Greens in the Australia Cup Round of 16.

The Sky Blues secured their place in the draw with a penalty shoot-out win over Central Coast Mariners at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday.

Head Coach Steve Corica said: “Bentleigh Greens have a good history in the Australia Cup over the years.

“They beat Broadmeadow Magic in the last round, who are also a good team.
