Sydney, Melbourne fight for premiership
In the last match of the A-League season, Sydney FC will play Melbourne Victory to decide the winners of this season's minor premiership.
This will be the first time in the history of the A-League for teams to actually play for minor premiership in the last round of the season.
Sydney will need to win this match whilst a draw will do for the Victorians.
In their other two matches this season, Sydney won one of them 3-nil and the other one finished in a goalless draw.
Its important to note that the Victory failed to score against their rivals and that both matches were at the Etihad Stadium.
Victory are currently the form team having accumulated 12 points from their last six matches whilst Sydney have amassed 10.
