Take a look at the stats that mattered in Melbourne Victory's 4-1 win over Perth Glory in Round 23 of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season.

Match comparison

It was a comprehensive scoreline in Victory's favour, but the stats show Glory had more shots on goal, on target and from inside the box.

Victory controlled possession, especially early in the game, and finished the match with significantly more passes.

Dependable duo strikes again

Victory's most prolific scorers this season – Besart Berisha and Marco Rojas – were on the scoresheet again against Perth.

The pair now has 30 goals between them for the current Hyundai A-League campaign, as well as a combined 15 assists.

Berisha's tally of 18 goals is equal to last season's haul, and he is just three goals off his all-time Hyundai A-League season record, which he recorded while playing for Brisbane Roar in 2011/12.

Top of the goals

Victory's 4-1 win over Perth took it back to the top of the competition for goals scored this season with 48, two clear of Sydney FC.

It was the fourth time this season Victory has scored four or more goals in a single game, a record bettered only by Sydney (five times).

Victory's 6-1 win over Wellington Phoenix in Round 4 is still the most goals a team has scored in an individual match so far this season.
