Road to 2016 Westfield FFA Cup Final: Sydney FC

On their journey to the Westfield FFA Cup Final, the Sky Blues have done it the hard way playing all their ties away from home.

Sydney FC’s mid-week Cup form has mirrored their blistering start to the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 Season.

In fact their record in their four Cup ties is an exact match of their return in the first four rounds of the season – 11 goals scored; 0 conceded – an incredible feat.

And the Sky Blues haven’t been short of contributors during their FFA Cup run, with an impressive nine different goal scorers – Matt Simon and David Carney being the only players to bank two.

Here's how they made it to AAMI Park for the decider on November 30 with City.

The Sky Blues were made to work for their first win in front of an impressive 8,000 fans at the fabulous WIN Stadium, with the score still deadlocked after an hour.

However two goals in four minutes from Matt Simon midway through the second half snuffed out of any fears of a Cup-set, with David Carney sealing the result in injury time with a slick finish.

The Sky Blues bossed the contest but were unable to break the deadlock in regulation time; however strikes from Milos Ninkovic and Alex Brosque in the additional 30 minutes sealed their progression against the Cup experts Perth.
