Melbourne City v Perth Glory Live Commentary & Result, 2016/04/17, A-League MenFULL TIME - The final whistle blows and Melbourne City FC are through to the semi finals for the first time with a 2-0 victory over Perth Glory who fought gallantly to the last but, in the end, they had no answer to the brilliance of Bruno Fornaroli who scored both goals. Marc Marino, with some space in the area, blasts away but the goal of Covic was never in danger. City fans' nerves are eased as the free kick is blasted straight into the wall. There will be four minutes of extra time to be played.
Krisztian Vadócz unleashes a powerful strike from beyond the penalty area but it is directed straight at Thomas Sørensen who completes the save. A terrific flick through by Mooy however Bruno Fornaroli is unable to control the ball which rolls through for Covic to clear. The long pass for Ben Garuccio has too much height and it clears its intended target and crosses the sideline for a Glory throw in. Outstanding combination from Melbourne City with Anthony Caceres linking up with Fornaroli however the Glory have numbers in defence to deny the former a clear shot at goal.
Inside the last minute of regular time and Perth have a free kick right on the edge of the territory - is there still a light at the end of the tunnel for the visitors? Outstanding play from Jacob Melling - he lays the ball off for Nick Fitzgerald who can sense a chance to fire home the sealer but he fires over the crossbar. A little too easy for Marc Marino who is allowed to stroll inside the penalty area and he unleashes a low strike that is parried away by Covic.
YELLOW CARD CITY - Aaron Mooy comes through strongly and has earned himself a yellow card in the process. A lengthy break in play with Anthony Caceres receiving treatment after the Lowry tackle but he is on his feet and should be ok to continue. YELLOW CARD GLORY - Shane Lowry goes in low and hard on Anthony Caceres and the ref shows no hesitation in producing a yellow card - replays show he may have been lucky it wasn't another colour. Caceres goes down and he will win a free kick for a trip from Nebojsa Marinkovic. Josh Risdon is on the end of a lofted pass however his control on this occasion lets him down with the ball flicking his hand.
SUBSTITUTION CITY - Ben Garuccio makes way for Marc Marino. YELLOW CARD GLORY - There's plenty of chatter going on out there at the moment and Richard García has been handed a yellow card. Melling almost has his head taken off by Gyorgy Sandor and City have a free kick in a dangerous attacking position. A 3 on 2 in favour of City creates an opening for Ben Garuccio but he attempts one touch too many which allows the Glory defence to scramble the ball clear. SUBSTITUTION GLORY - A second change for Perth with Chris Harold leaving the pitch for Richard García. SUBSTITUTION CITY - City make their first substitution with Anthony Caceres replaced by Jacob Melling.
Anthony Caceres makes the break out of defence and fires the pass in the direction of Bruno Fornaroli upfield however the City goal scorer is unable to control the ball. A lovely floated pass for Diego Castro who does extremely well to control the bouncing ball, despite his recent hamstring issues, and he has won a corner for the Glory. Krisztian Vadócz is upended and Perth have a free kick virtually right on the half way line. YELLOW CARD CITY - Things becoming rather heated at the moment - Patrick Kisnorbo goes in low, upending Andy Keogh and he picks up a card. Ben Garuccio looks to unleash from right on the edge of the penalty area however Dino Djulbic is in the road and the danger is averted for Glory.
It has been a lively few minutes from Perth in the opening minutes of this second half - they are lifting the tempo. Chance for Glory! Thomas Sørensen can only parry the ball as far as Gyorgy Sandor who has a look at an open goal however his untidy volley is high and wide of the mark. SUBSTITUTION GLORY - Perth have made a change at half time with Alexander Grant to be replaced by Dino Đulbić. SECOND HALF - Perth kick off and we are underway in the second half. It's all to play for in the second half - Melbourne City hold the advantage but, as we saw on Friday night, anything is possible when the season is on the line! HALF TIME - A high quality first half comes to an end and it is Melbourne City, on the back of a stunning strike from Fornaroli, who head into the break with a 1-0 lead over Perth Glory.

The field opens up for Mooy who has acres of space in front of him, he runs to within range and attempts to bend a long range shot inside the top right corner - he has missed but the shot wasn't far away. There's no doubt Glory are creating more opportunities at the moment - on this occasion, however, the flag is up for offside against Keogh.
