    After a highly entertaining, and competitive game of football on Saturday night, Melbourne Victory were able to run away with the match and secure all three points.

    Melbourne Victory started off very quickly, attacking ruthlessly from the first whistle.

    However, it was the Glory that would strike first, as Diego Castro found the net against the run of play to give Perth the lead.

    Victory continued their attack, and were finally rewarded, as Besart Berisha netted his 99th A-League goal.

    Then, right before half time, Berisha would be involved again.

    The Albanian striker juggled the ball five times near the corner flag before volleying the ball into the box, where Fahid Ben Khalfallah was waiting to head the ball into the net.

    The second half started in similar fashion to the first – both sides on the attack.

    It was Victory who made the most of their chances, with Marco Rojas finding the net after a great performance, before James Troisi gave the keeper no chance with a brilliant effort outside the box.

    Perth were unable to come up with any answers despite having their chances.

    The final score at AAMI Park, Melbourne Victory four, Perth Glory one.

      Berisha is still evolving. That was a Maradona’s famous kick.

      A good performance by the victory lads that has probably wrapped up second place. Brisbane for third hopefully.

      The opening 45 mins was the best competitive football I’ve seen this season. Both teams going 100% intensity with the focus on getting forward. Mistakes made for sure, as mistakes were made in the Champions League when the world’s best teams are playing. All the goals were great value.

      A huge contrast to the dull football match the previous night in Sydney.

      A bit of a classic this game , the victory were too good in the end but the non penalty when keogh gets rugby tackled in the box astounds me . Goals by Troisi and Rojas were fantastic .
