Coming into the season if you had made a Grand Final prediction of Melbourne City vs. Melbourne Victory you would have a solid prediction people would not think twice about.

But after today your prediction might turn a few heads.

Before City went up against Newcastle, Melbourne Victory played Sydney FC. 

Now, Sydney is the defending champion, but Victory is thought to be a title contender this season. Sydney showed what a true title contender looks like after defeating Melbourne Victory 3-0. 

Melbourne CIty followed that up with a tie to the Newcastle Jets for the first time in their existence. 

A tie between Victory and City with a 3-0 win by City over the Jets was thought to be the more likely scenario. 

Thankfully names on rosters and pedigrees are not what decides who wins in football. 

Hats off to Sydney FC and Newcastle for impressive performances today. 

For the two teams in Melbourne they want to go back to the drawing board and try to regroup for next week.
