Melbourne's Brebner: We are going to Sydney to win

Melbourne Victory midfielder Grant Brebner says the team is going to Sydney to win their major semi-final second leg on Sunday.

Following the first leg in Melbourne, which the Victory won 2-1, you could excuse the reigning champions for going in with a defensive game plan and attitude to record a draw and go straight through to the Grand Final.

Brebner says that although a draw will be enough, that is not the Victory style.

"Over the season and over the course of our history, Melbourne Victory has always wanted to win the game," he told Sportal.

"We will be definitely going up there to win it but we also know in the back of our mind a draw is good enough."

And Brebner said the heavy schedule the Victory has at the moment does not worry him, especially seeing as some teams are done and dusted for the season.

"It's a fantastic position to be in and the games don't come any bigger," Brebner added.

"There are certain teams on holiday at the moment so we are thankful we are still involved in the two competitions and the games will come thick and fast but we are looking forward to them.

"We are playing in the Asian Champions League and we have a chance to get into the A-League grand final, what more could you ask for?"
