It is not the first time the Melbourne City FC goes undefeated in the W-League Premiership regular season. It did so in its inaugural season, 2015-2016, under Joe Montemurro winning all of its 12 matches scoring 38 goals and conceding four.
This time around, Rado Vidosic's Melbourne City won 11 of 12 games drawing one in the process. City's defense was as dominant as it was on its first season allowing exactly four goals but could not equal its 2015-2016 goal tally scoring a total of 27 goals.
Now, it is time for Melbourne City to finish what it started. The W-League Premiership champion will go up against the only side that took points from them, Western Sydney. Inevitably, six of their players will not get the scheduled two-week rest as they will join the Matildas for the Olympic qualifiers that were delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak. The game will take place at ABD Stadium in Broadmeadows on March 15.
If City comes out on top, then it will face the winner of the other semi-final, either Melbourne Victory or Sydney, with hopes to win it all once again.
What went down
As expected, Melbourne City dominated the possession in the first half. Despite not being accurate in the shooting department, Ellie Carpenter dashed up the right sideline and delivered a cross to Mijatovic who ripped a shot past Brisbane's keeper.
City came into this match not conceding a single goal in seven games, but the Roar spoiled that party scoring just four minutes after halftime.
It was Texas A&M graduate Ally Watt who saved and sealed the invincibles season for Melbourne City scoring the defining goal plus another.
