Commentary

FULL TIME - It's all over here with Sydney FC absolutely dominating Western Sydney tonight to hand them a 5-0 thrashing. The final scoreline probably flattered the Wanderers with Sydney FC creating many more chances. They extend their lead at the top of the A-League to 8 points and there is no holding Sydney FC back.
90' + 4' Risdon crosses to Santalab who tries to score with a spectacular scissor head but his effort is well over.
90' + 3' Bobo is put through by Mierzejewski and somehow Aspropotamitis gets back to apply the block.
90' + 1' There will be four minutes of added time.
90' Graham Arnold is still barking out instructions on the sideline.

HALF TIME - It's all one way traffic at half-time and Sydney FC are absolutely dominating the Western Sydney Wanderers with a 3-0 lead at half-time. It's fair to say that the scoreboard doesn't accurately reflect the gap between these two teams at half-time. In fact Sydney should be further ahead. We will be back for the second half shortly.
