The Sky Blue defender reveals the team's confidence heading into Saturday night's blockbuster

Sydney FC have beaten Melbourne Victory in seven consecutive matches, and it's this dominance that gives the Sky Blues confidence, according to left-back Michael Zullo.

Graham Arnold's men have won every encounter between the teams since a 1-1 draw at AAMI Park February 2016, including last season's grand final win after a penalty shootout.

Zullo revealed consistent success against their interstate rivals makes their own belief stronger for Saturday night's clash at Allianz Stadium.

"Regardless of what they've done since December, we win every time we play against Melbourne Victory," Zullo said.

"That's something we're taking into the weekend and we're using that confidence to put in a good performance.

"We're so motivated to cap off what's been a fantastic year."

Skipper Alex Brosque believes the club's dominance over Victory will be playing on the mind of Kevin Muscat and his players.

Victory's last win in the fixture was a 1-0 win at AAMI Park on Australia Day 2016, while their previous triumph at Allianz Stadium came in November 2015.

"We know how tough games against Melbourne have been in the past so to have seven wins in a row over them, no doubt it's playing on their mind. It's on our mind," Brosque said.

"They'll maintain the semi-final is a different game of football. But in front of our home crowd and with our home record we're very confident."
