Sydney:

Substitute midfielder Andrew Nabbout scored his second goal of the match a minute into added time to give Melbourne Victory a 3-2 comeback win over Sydney FC, spoiling Alessandro Del Piero's return to the starting lineup a day after the former Italy and Juventus star's 38th birthday.

The 19-year-old Nabbout also scored in the 79th minute Saturday and Archie Thompson in the 86th to help the Victory overcome a 2-0 deficit. Panamanian striker Yairo Yau, converting a pass from Del Piero in the 14th minute, and Dutch defender Pascal Bosschaart, in the 48th, had given Sydney a 2-0 lead.

Del Piero missed last week's match due to tightness in both hamstrings, a 7-2 loss to the Central Coast Mariners. On Saturday, Del Piero was substituted after 66 minutes.
