The electricity is surging through Sydney as the biggest game of our calendar has arrived. Many will argue that the Sydney Derby is our biggest fixture but for the purists and longstanding fans, Melbourne Victory is our biggest and oldest rivalry.
Melbourne Victory travel interstate to take on our lads at the Sydney Football Stadium. To some, it’s just another game to win. But to me it’s so much more. Not only is this game about bragging rights for the winner of the game, but it’s also bragging rights for which city is better. This is just another battle in a longstanding war, a battle between two of the foundation clubs and between the biggest cities in the country.
As it currently stands this particular game, against our fiercest enemy, has the makings of being another classic. I am expecting the game to deliver in entertainment, action and goals and deliver those in spades.
Right off the bat, I would like to again point out that this game could be potentially missing stars as Football Federation Australia does not accommodate FIFA’s International Calendar.
