Mel­bourne: Roy Kr­ishna scored for Welling­ton Phoenix goal in the 63rd minute but it was not enough as Mel­bourne Vic­tory romped to a 6-1 win on Mon­day night. Vic­tory were in top form with with Be­sart Ber­isha and Marco Rojas at their ruth­less best.

A bizarre two-minute spell in the first half that led to a Ber­isha penalty spot brace setup the win, be­fore the striker com­pleted his hat-trick as the Ki­wis’ bar­ren run con­tin­ued.

Rojas iced it with a late dou­ble of his own, be­fore as­sist­ing an­other two in front of 20,113 fans at Eti­had Sta­dium, set­ting up a mouth-wa­ter­ing clash away to top-placed Syd­ney FC on Satur­day. It was déjà vu within a two-minute spell for Vic­tory as two clumsy Phoenix chal­lenges sent Ber­isha to the penalty spot. The first came on 19 min­utes, with Dutch­man Roly Boneva­cia trip­ping Daniel Ge­orgievski af­ter a clever re­lease from Oliver Bozanic. The sec­ond was slightly un­for­tu­nate but no less care­less from Dy­lan Fox, who tan­gled with Ber­isha.- Fox Sports
