Sky Blues sink to defeat
Sydney FC went down 1-0 to Serie C side Venezia, an early goal doing all the damage.
Just three minutes in, a long ball caught Frank Farina’s side on the hop, striker Riccardo Bocolan was on hand to give the hosts the lead.
The goal stung Sydney into action but solid defending from Venezia kept the score at 1-0. Alessandro Del Piero was unable to hit back, going close on two occasions from set pieces.
