Pre-season friendlies confirmed

Melbourne Victory has locked in two friendlies before its FFA Cup clash against Brisbane Roar next month.

Matches against Port Melbourne and Bentleigh Greens will be Victory’s first competitive hit-outs of the pre-season.

Victory faced the same two clubs in last year’s pre-season, and goals from Mitch Austin, Jai Ingham, Oliver Bozanic, Besart Berisha, George Howard and Christian Theoharous secured the A-League powerhouse a 6-0 win against Port Melbourne.

Bentleigh Greens is another familiar opponent, the sides clashing in the FFA Cup quarter finals in 2016. Marco Rojas and James Troisi scored in a 2-0 win at Kingston Heath.
