Mileusnic pounces the ball which spills outside the box and fires a low rocket towards goal which just goes wide.

They’re getting closer Adelaide.

It was the calf which was giving City winger Scott Jamieson trouble earlier in the match.

Manager Warren Joyce was not keen to take any risks, replacing him with Luke Brattan late in the half.

Garrucio goes straight into the book for a challenge from behind on Bruce Kamau.

Looks as though the referee will utilise his cards a lot more this half after quite a fiery opening 45.

Isaias gives the ball away in defence and is very lucky Fitzgerald was unable to find the back of the net with his left footed attempt only finding Izzo.

A few cracks starting to show in Adelaide’s defence.

Despite sitting back so deep City are holding their own in defence, withstanding a mountain of pressure from the home side.

The referee issues the first yellow card of the match to Osama Malik who aggressively slid in to Isaias, despite the defender making a strong claim he won the ball.

28′

Ben Warland fulfills his defensive duties stopping a darting Nick Fitzgerald in his tracks on the counter.

It looks as though City are happy to sit behind the ball and make their attacks on the counter.

24′

Galekovic produces a huge save to deny Warland in what has been a highlight filled match so far.

Warland hit the ball very well after Matmour had laid the ball off for the defender but Galekovic was certainly up to the task.

Free flowing and intense would be the two best words to describe the opening 20 minutes of play.

Both sides have certainly come to play, laying some big challenges and willing to take the game by the horns.

After such a vibrant start to this match Adelaide find themselves two goals down inside the first 20 minutes.

The Reds have controlled much of this match so far but just haven’t been rewarded on the scoreboard.

GOAL

Ross McCormack does it again!

The Scotsman produces a beautiful set piece to double the visitors lead!

It will certainly be a contender for goal of the season!

Quite a feisty start to this match.

The referee has been busy already calling 11 fouls inside the first 15 minutes.

Make that 12.

Adelaide have wasted no time in trying to get back into the game with Kostandopoulos winning a free kick just outside the box.

Isaias steps up but can’t direct his attempt on target and it goes out for a goal kick.
