Besart Berisha (Melbourne Victory), 1 goal :
The game against Central Coast Mariners could have ended 0-0 but 29 year old Besart Berisha’s strike after an hour of playtime gave Melbourne Victory an extra boost. He sneaked by the defenders and gave Melbourne a 1-0-lead, less than ten minutes later Melbourne took a 3-0 lead which also was the final result. This was Melbourne’s third win in a row which means they only have a one point gap up to first placed Perth Glory. Berisha has now scored six season goals in nine games and he has scored a total of 54 goals in Australia since his arrival. This means that he remains the third top goal scorer in the A-League history, bear in mind that Australia’s new league was founded almost ten years ago.
