Two of the best teams in the competition went head-to-head at AAMI Park, but neither could strut their stuff as it ended in a 1-1 draw.

It was an intriguing and heated clash as both sides gave something to remember, especially Vedran Janjetovic, Jaushua Sotirio and Nick Fitzgerald.

With new Head Coach Josep Gombau at the helm, the Wanderers were eager to continue their unbeaten streak and get their much-needed breakthrough win.

However, a smooth City had a perfect record until it was blemished last week, and were fervent to reclaim their consistency.

Sotirio opened the scoring for Western Sydney but the visitors had to settle for yet another draw, as Ross McCormack equalised with a penalty.

Melbourne City

Eugene Galekovic (GK) - 7.5

Tipped out Sotirio’s headed chance for a corner, and made some great saves despite the first goal, which was unstoppable.

Manny Muscat - 6.5

Good interceptions and did a lot of the defensive work.

Bart Schenkeveld - 8

Good stop on Sotirio in the first half, and averted crises defensively. Made a costly error when he passed back to Malik, and should’ve cleared as it ended up a goal.

Overall, had a great game and made up ground as he was mainly in the right position.
