Melbourne Victory collapsed to more Big Blue misery as Bobo’s brace helped Sydney FC to a come-from-behind 3-1 win at AAMI Park on Friday, sending the visitors nine points clear at the top of the A-League table.
Trailing to Besart Berisha’s 58th minute penalty, the Sky Blues responded in emphatic fashion as they piled on three goals over the final half-hour to extend their unbeaten run against Kevin Muscat’s men to two years.
Bobo netted a quickfire equaliser and struck the second from the spot, with Jason Geria shown a second yellow card for bringing down the Brazilian.
David Carney added late polish off the bench to ensure the champions moved nine points clear at the top, while Victory remain vulnerable in fourth.
Sydney FC Head Coach Graham Arnold regards his star-studded attack as the most lethal combination the Hyundai A-League has ever seen.
The Sky Blues improved their season tally to 42 goals in 18 games with a come-from-behind 3-1 win away to Melbourne Victory on Friday night.
Bobô scored twice to lead the fightback – in the process breaking Marc Janko’s club record of 16 goals in a season – while Adrian Mierzejewski was also influential.
And with Milos Ninkovic and Alex Brosque complementing that in-form pair, Arnold sees no equals to his quartet.
“The front four I believe is probably the greatest front line in A-League history,” Arnold said at his post-match press conference.
“We know we can score goals and damage teams with our quality.
“When we play to structure and focus more on the football rather than battle and the fight, and we get some fluency, we are such a special team.”
