Commentary

FULL TIME - ULSAN 6-2 VICTORY: An absolutely abject display from Melbourne Victory as Ulsan cruise to the win and get through to the knockout stages.
90' + 1' There will be three minutes of added on time.
90' In-Sung tries the lob over Thomas while one-on-one but he puts it wide. He should have squared to Junior for his hat-trick.
88' Kenny Athiu puts the ball in the back of the net off the crossbar but it's ruled out correctly for offside.
86' Ulsan are just sitting back absorbing pressure at the moment. Their work is done tonight.
83' We are just playing out time here in Ulsan. Will there by any more goals?
Lee Young-Jae
M. Oršić
Ulsan
81' SUBSTITUTION ULSAN - Two-goal hero Orsic comes off for Young-Jae.
79' Ulsan go close again but Thomas smothers Junior's flick.
78' What a strange game it has been tonight. Victory have defended horrifically. They have conceded six but it could easily have been eight or nine.
77' Need to take a minute to get my breath back. Four goals in eight minutes. Incredible.
Goal
75' GOAL ULSAN - It's goals galore. Orsic cuts inside and curls a shot into the corner. It was helped by a deflection. 
Jeong Dong-Ho
Lee Myung-Jae
Ulsan
74' SUBSTITUTION ULSAN - Jae-Lee is taken off for Dong-Ho.
Goal
74' GOAL VICTORY - They have pulled two back. The ball bobbles in the penalty area and Barbarouses lashes the rebound through the keeper's legs. Surely not?
C. Theoharous
J. Troisi
Melbourne Victory
72' SUBSTITUTION VICTORY - Troisi is replaced by Theoharous.
Goal
72' GOAL VICTORY - Athiu scores his first ever goal for Victory after Barbarouses drives a ball into the six-yard box. Was a good finish from close range.
Kim In-Sung
Hwang Il-Su
Ulsan
68' SUBSTITUTION ULSAN - In Sung enters the field for Il-Soo. Ulsan can now afford to rest their star players.
Goal
67' GOAL ULSAN - And it's five. Myung-Jae puts in a superb delivery into the penalty area from the left and Junior heads it home emphatically. This is officially a rout.
65' Another unbelievable save by Thomas to deny Junior from close range. That was too easy. Barbarouses gave away possession and Ulsan so close to making it five.
63' Barbarouses tries to go round his opponent down the right but he only succeeds in running it out for a goal kick.
61' Thomas makes a superb save to deny Junior, who profited from the acres of space at the back.
60' George swings the corner in but Seung-Hoon punches clear with authority.

56' This is turning into a complete disaster for Victory.
Goal
55' GOAL ULSAN - Seung-Jin makes the most of the space at the back. He is slid through by Windbichler, his first shot is off Thomas, before he strokes into the net with a deflection off Broxham.
51' Junior shoots into the side netting from a tight angle after being set up Chang-Soo. Ulsan look poised to score the fourth. There is plenty of space in Victory's half.
50' Ulsan take a short corner, the delivery finds Min-Soo in the six-yard box but he heads over the bar. That was tough chance however.
49' POST! More poor defending from Victory. Il-Soo bursts through and tries to smash a shot into the near post area but it slams off the woodwork.
48' Muscat looks to have shaped Victory into a back three with Deng, Donachie and Broxham in the centre. Ingham and Barbarouses are the wingbacks.

K. Athiu

Yellow Card
Ulsan

41' Windbichler hustles Barbarouses and wins the goal kick. Some more great defensive midfield play. 
40' George whips in the corner, Deng rises highest but he doesn't connect well and heads wide. He should have hit the target there.
39' Clinical showing from the Koreans. They have been devastating in front of goal tonight. That's got to just about be game over already.
Goal
38' GOAL ULSAN - The Koreans counter swiftly, the move breaks down briefly, before Orsic fires a shot from the top of the area that bounces off the post and in.
36' Windbichler steals the ball off Troisi. He has been good in central midfield tonight.

34' Orsic probes down the left but is well held up by Deng and Donachie.
32' Barbarouses spins his defender and drives into the right wing space. He tries the early cross to pick out George but it's misplaced and Ulsan clear.

30' Ulsan are sitting deep and looking to pick off Victory on the counter.

25' A promising Victory build-up breaks down after Troisi's poor giveaway.

22' POST! Orsic feeds Il-Soo through the left channel of the penalty area and the Korean smashes his shot off the near post. So close to a third.
22' It's a long way back here for the away side. They really have to dig deep to keep their progression hopes alive.
21' Two mistakes from Victory have been punished. They just aren't a defensively solid team.
Goal
20' GOAL ULSAN - Jong-Eun taps home the cross from Il-Soo after great work down the right. The centre-half stayed forward after the corner.
18' Hope gives away the ball. It's pounced on by Orsic but his cross through the penalty area isn't to the advantage of a teammate.

14' George goes short but the move breaks down before the delivery is into the box.
14' Victory earn a corner after another good passage of play. George to take.
13' That's football. Victory have dominated the opening stages but one mistake by goalkeeper Thomas sees them go behind in a must-win match.
Goal
12' GOAL ULSAN - Wow. Thomas clears the ball right into Junior and the ball bounces off the Ulsan attacker and into the net. Nightmare start for Victory. What a horrible way to concede.
10' Donachie has a crack from 35 yards but it's rising and way over the bar. Victory the better team so far.
