The win came after a red-card in the second half allowed Brisbane to totally dominate and sees the Roar extend their league a top the A-League ladder to seven points.

Melbourne Victory started Gui Finkler for the first time, a reward for his impressive cameo appearances of late, and he was vital for the hosts in the opening stages.

Finkler created the first two chances of the match, first a corner finding Mark Milligan who poked it wide, before sending Kosta Barbarouses through only for him to shoot right at Michael Theo.

On the quarter hour Brisbane had their first chance as Thomas Broich chipped the ball in to the box for Henrique who headed right at Nathan Coe.

In the 28th minute Brisbane hit the lead as Diogo Ferreira was able to send a cross back for Broich who set up Liam Miller for a powerful strike.

Nathan Coe kept the deficit down to one at the break as he dove down low to deny Henrique from point blank range as the Roar really started to take charge of the match.

Coe continued to torture Henrique after the break as he made a top save to deny the Brazilian again after Matt McKay set up Henrique.

But that didn't stop the Roar and ten minutes in to the half they made it two, with Miller and McKay linking up perfectly to allow McKay clean through and leaving a simple chipped finish.

The match was all but over in 67th minute as Broich slid a pass through for Dimitri Petratos who was able to beat his defender and hit a powerful shot to the bottom corner of the net.

In the 68th minute Victory's hope of making any come back went away as Adrian Leijer made a bad challenge on Henrique earning him his second yellow card.

That allowed Brisbane to just dominate the final 20 minutes but they couldn't find another goal, having to settle for a 3-0 win.
