Melbourne Victory bagged their first triumph in E-League history with a nervy two-leg victory over Wellington Phoenix.

Mouad Zwed continued his good run of form with an accomplished 2-0 win over Christian Bartolilo.
Zwed broke the deadlock with a towering Sergio Ramos header that split the teams at the break.
He had to be patient despite a string of opportunities to double the advantage, but a second for Zwed eventually did come with a tidy finish late in the match.

Xbox: Mouad ‘MuadZwed’ Zwed 3-4 Justin ‘Justmanutd12’ Josevski
Mouad Zwed survived an almighty fright as he struck late to salvage a 4-3 defeat to Justin Josevski that proved just enough for an overall win.
The early exchanges were marked by wastefulness and Josevski was made to pay by two quickfire Zwed goals that seemingly had Victory in complete control.
However, Josevski’s tactical reshuffle brought about a much-needed lifeline on the half-hour mark and he sensationally notched another two before half-time.
Phoenix only needed a further one to restore parity on aggregate and, incredibly, the goal arrived within eight minutes of the restart.
Yet, with all the momentum against him, Zwed somehow recaptured his composure to undo all of Josevski’s good work with a decisive tie-winner as the clocked ticked toward the end of a classic.
