Match Report: Bentleigh Greens vs Melbourne City (Double-Header) FRIENDLY

Melbourne City have maintained their unbeaten streak in preseason friendlies over Bentleigh Greens, keeping the NPL Victoria side scoreless for the third successive time to record a 1-0 win in a well-contested affair.

Earlier in the night, a Melbourne City extended squad, which featured a sprinkling of surprise City senior players amongst the club’s top youth players, defeated Bentleigh’s youth side 6-2 in a more dominant performance in which the away team were able to more-effectively impose their possession-based style of play than their senior counterparts in the main event.

Having attended the double-header and watched both games closely, we’ve provided brief coverage of the extended squad game, including commentary on the performances of ones-to-watch Marco Tilio and Taras Gomulka, followed by a full match report and analysis of City’s top performers in the senior game.
