2. Sydney FC’s pressure was first class 

Sydney FC’s game plan was effective. They pressed hard and put pressure on City leading to turnovers and disconnect amongst the usually fluent City players. 

Pressure is already there in a grand final, but Sydney FC took it to another level. It kept them in the game for the most part. 

As the game opened up and City were tired and frustrated, the Sky Blues got themselves back into the game. 

Unfortunately for Sydney FC it wasn’t enough with City holding on for another win.
