In windy conditions Sydney FC pulled out a fantastic 1-0 win over Melbourne Victory to book themselves another Grand Final birth. A first half winner from Veronica Latsko was enough for the Sky Blues.
2. Sky Blues understand the finals game
Love them or loathe them, Sydney FC as a club know what it takes to win on the big stage. Next weekend will be their seventh W-League decider as they look for a record breaking fourth crown.
Today they had a solid game plan which paid off. They absorbed Victory’s pressure and then counter attacked when they needed too.
Their defence stuck to the task, jockeying opponents when necessary and then putting in timely tackles when they had too.
It was a disciplined performance from the Sky Blues who will feel they deserved a win despite having to clear the ball away 34 times to eight.
The fact they had 52% of the possession despite the fact Victory looked like they were attacking more just shows that Sydney FC knew exactly what they were doing.
