Melbourne City will face Western United in the ALM Grand Final after beating Adelaide United

Jamie Maclaren sealed Melbourne City’s 2-1 victory over Adelaide United in extra time in the second leg of their A-League Men’s semi-final.

City are now one win away from becoming the first team to complete consecutive A-League Men’s Premiership-Championship doubles.

Maclaren’s 92nd-minute goal capped a spectacular second-leg comeback and marked the first all-Victorian ALM decider against Western United at AAMI Park on Saturday.

This will be City’s third consecutive Grand Final.

Scores were tied at 0-0 after Wednesday’s first leg in Adelaide and Zach Clough’s wonderful 48th-minute dink gave the Reds the lead at AAMI Park, before Marco Tilio equalized in the 74th minute to extend the match.

It was City’s first win against a top four side in 11 attempts this season.
