Greatest Goal Quarter Finals locked in

Greatest Goal Quarter Finals locked in

After almost 25,000 votes across Facebook, Twitter & Instagram Stories during the second round fixtures, just eight goals are left in  Melbourne Victory’s Greatest Goal competition.

The second round started with 16 of our best long-range bombs, magic moments and last-minute winners as Victory fans were given the opportunity to decide which goals would progress.

One lucky person who casts their vote will win a 65 inch TV, thanks to TCL Australia/NZ. We also have 4x $100 adidas vouchers to give away, so make sure you get involved!

Biggest winner

Marco Rojas’ incredible volley against Newcastle in the 2013/14 season proved too strong for Leigh Broxham’s 2015 Grand Final sealer. Marco’s magic cruised into the Quarter Finals with 2,669 votes, 1,813 more than Brox (sorry Leigh!).

Tightest margin

In a match-up that went down to the wire, Andrew Nabbout’s stunning winner against Adelaide from the current season edged out Leroy George’s 2017/18 free kick against the same opposition by just FOUR votes. Andy easily won on Twitter, while Leroy came out on top on Facebook, so it came down to the Instagram Story vote to decide who would progress. Nabbout’s goal won on Instagram by only 21 votes to go into the Quarter Finals with the smallest margin of any fixture so far.

Most voted on fixtures

The following three fixture attracted the most votes:

Archie Thompson (2005/06) v Carlos Hernandez (2009/10) – 3,669 votes
Archie Thompson (2012/13) v Carlos Hernandez (2011/12) – 3,628 votes
Marco Rojas (2013/14) v Leigh Broxham (2014/15) – 3,525 votes

Biggest upset

While there wasn’t any upsets as big as James Robinson’s 2007 Semi Final header bowing out in the first round, a couple of outstanding goals were eliminated in the second round. Most notably, Archie Thompson’s Melbourne Derby winner from the 2012/13 season was one we expected to see in the latter stages of the competition, but Victory fans love a Carlos Hernandez rocket so his strike against Central Coast from the 2011/12 season proved too popular.

Quarter Final fixtures

Quarter Finals voting starts at 10am on Saturday, June 20.
