SYDNEY — Guilherme Finkler scored a second-half equalizer to give Melbourne Victory a 2-2 draw with Melbourne City in their city derby on Saturday.
City's Bruno Fornaroli scored goals nine minutes apart in the first half, in between a strike by Fahid Ben Khalfallah. Finkler's leveler came just after the re-start.
The Victory and City are level on 29 points, six behind league leader Brisbane after 19 rounds, but City holds a five-goal edge on goal difference over its rival from Victoria's state capital.
Earlier Saturday, goals from Andy Keogh and Chris Harold gave Perth Glory a 2-1 win over Sydney FC. It was Harold's fifth goal in five games.
On Sunday, second-place Western Sydney Wanderers, who trail Brisbane by a point, can move back into the lead with a home win over Wellington. Central Coast hosts Adelaide in the other match to conclude the 19th round.
