  • Sydney FC survived a nervy Xbox encounter to beaten Western Sydney Wanderers in a fittingly hard-fought Sydney Derby.

PS4: Mark 'xMarkoHD' Brijeski 2-0 Rick 'DOUBLETTT' Tran

Mark Brijeski grabbed the early bragging rights for Sydney FC with an accomplished 2-0 win over Rick Tran.

After a scoreless first half, it was Brijeski who broke the deadlock from a 63rd-minute corner.

And the Sky Blues doubled their advantage late on as Brijeski sealed his second successive victory.

Xbox: Samer 'Samer96_' Elbadar 3-4 Joseph 'OhNoAGoat' Nassar

Joseph Nassar's superb Xbox fightback fell agonisingly short of earning Western Sydney a point despite a 4-3 victory over Sydney FC's Samer Elbadar.

The pair traded goals in the first half, before two quick strikes from Albadar appeared to have put the tie beyond doubt.

That was until Nassar's dogged late rally produced three match-turning goals.

While it wasn't enough to secure an overall draw, the comeback did ensure Wanderers knocked their rivals off top spot.
