The first half saw 6 goals between both teams respectively as Birkan Kirdar of Melbourne Victory scored in the 31st to level proceedings.

Two quick goals from Peirce Waring completed his hattrick to put Melbourne two goals ahead on the day.

The second half saw both teams fighting for the three points as Adelaide knocked on the door to get back in the game.

Finally, late in injury time Ninko Beric scored his brace to pull back one and give Adelaide hope, but unfortunately that was how the game would end, 3-4 to Melbourne Victory.
