FFA Cup Round of 16: Wanderers smash Sydney United

Western Sydney Wanderers FC have marched into the 2019 FFA Cup Quarter Finals following an impressive 7-1 win - the biggest in the club's history - over Sydney United. 

In a totally dominant display, the Red & Black had the game well in their keeping at half-time leading 3-0 through goals from Bruce Kamau, Daniel Georgievski and Kwame Yeboah.

Sydney United put on a spirited effort early in the second half to pull a goal back from the penalty spot to make it 3-1 but the Wanderers stepped it up again to run riot, adding another four goals to their tally. 

The Wanderers responded magnificently, going four up through an own goal before Tate Russell, Radi Majewski and Georgievski with his second, completed what was an excellent performance as they continued their fine pre-season form.

United finished the game with 10 men after Yianni Perkatis was sent off in the 63rd minute following a melee that came from Russell was being brought down in a scything tackle from behind.

The Red & Black could have had a few more had it not been for United goalkeeper Daniel Sedaka who made a string of saves in both halves. 

Majewski, Georgievski and Pirmin Schwegler were the stars of the victory.

Majewski had a hand in three goals before scoring a screamer. 

Georgievski was a handful down the left flank and was rewarded with a brace while Schwegler orchestrated the midfield with his reading of the game and his sublime passing.
