    It was a big game in front of a small crowd at AAMI Park this evening. After leaking two goals eary, Heart (through Migliorini) produced two absolute belters to square things up before a (dubious) penalty was awarded to the Heart and Williams put them in front. Adelaide scored a great goal of its own through Carrusca, the game became fore of an arm wrestle, and ended all square. A big evening for both sides. Melbourne 3 Adelaide 3

    But the free kick comes to nothing as referee Strebre Delovski blows his whistle and that's it. Game finishes in a draw, but what a draw it was. Melbourne 3 Adelaide 3

    93rd minute: One last chance for Melbourne? A free kick going forward

    Into the 92nd minute now, and it's still 3 all. Heart has the throw in in defence.

    Three minutes of stoppage time at AAMI Park.

    ...and he sends it straight into the wall. Relief for Melbourne Heart.

    90th minute: Free to Adelaide. Djite fouled right on the edge of the area and this will be a nervous moment for Melbourne Heart. Carrusca to take it...

    88th minute: Substitution Heart. Williams off, Mauk on.

    88th minute: Carrusca agains takes the corner but Heart clears.

    87th minute: Free kick for Adelaide and it's Carrusca who sends it into the area. Melbourne clears but in the end, it goes out off Mifsud and it's an Adelaide corner.

    85th minute: Substitution for Melbourne. The two-goal hero, Andrea Migliorini, replaced by Nick Kalmar.

    85th minute: Shot on target for Adelaide and Jake Barker-Daish. But His long-range shot flew straight into the hands of Redmayne.

    83rd minute: Behich awarded a yellow for a blatant pull of an Adelaide shirt there.

    82nd minute: The intensity has dropped a notch but both teams still pushing for a goal.

    GOAL ADELAIDE! Carrusca's free kick from outside the area takes a deflection and goes sailing past Redmayne for a goal. Heart crowd is stunned but the away fans are on their feet and making some noise! Great goal by Carrusca. Once again, it's all square at AAMI Park. 77 minutes gone!

    73rd minute: Corner for Heart and the ball was bouncing around dangerously in the area. But the referee has picked out a free kick and it's a let-off for Adelaide. Meanwhile, Adelaide has made another substitution: Lustica off, Barker Daish on.

    AND HE SCORES! Williams sends it home and Melbourne is in front! Melbourne 3 Adelaide 2

    The penalty was given for handball but it looks like, on replay, there was no handball there. Williams will take the penalty.

    PENALTY HEART! Adelaide defenders protest but Delovski has awarded a penalty to the Heart.

    69th minute: Carrusca with a long-range shot for the Reds. It's a bit of a Hail Mary, and the Heart fans cheer it accordingly.

    68th minute: Adelaide goes forward and almost take the lead back on the break. Shot goes wide though. Melbourne 2 Adelaide 2

    Some great set-up work by Murdocca, who drew the defenders to the goal line before hitting Migliorini in space right on the edge of the area. Migliorini bulleted the ball into the back of the net with his first touch. It's 2 all at AAMI Park!!

    Goal Heart! Migliorini again! It's all square in the 66th minute!

    64th minute: Corner to Adelaide. It's Carrusca who whips the ball in but eventually Behich is able to send the ball out for an Adelaide throw in.

    62nd minute: Another substitution for Adelaide. Jeronimo takes his time coming off, but eventually makes way for Djite.

    61st minute: Adelaide goes forward for what feels like the first time in an age. Nothing comes off it, but at least time in the Reds forward half takes a bit of pressure off the defence.

    A replay of the Mehbrahtu shot shows that Strebre Delovski initially awarded the corner to Heart. The free to Adelaide may have been for offside.

    60th minute, Subsitution for Adelaide: Ferreria off, Mabil on.

    58th minute: Yellow card to Jeronimo for time wasting, it looks like. Adelaide is on the back foot here! Melbourne 1 Adelaide 2

    Heart again press. Mehbrahtu comes back inside and his shot is on target! Deflected by Galekovic, but the referee awards a goal kick. 

    In the 55th minute the Heart has, through Migliorini, broken it's home-scoring dry spell. And what a way to do it! The atmosphere in the stadium has gone up a notch and Heart is right back in here. John Aloisi is on his feet and celebrating hard! Melbourne 1 Adelaide 2

    GOAL HEART! MIGLIORINI with an absolute scorcher from well outside the area!!

    54th minute: Big chance for Adelaide but the Reds are thwarted by a diving Kisnorbo who threw himself in front of the ball and blocked the shot.

    Where Kisnorbo is offside. Adelaide takes the free.

    52nd minute: It's the first card of the game. Osama Malik is given a yellow for his challenge on Migliorini and Melbourne Heart sends the ball forward again.

    51st minute: Offside call as Melbourne Heart goes forward. Williams tried to thread the ball through traffic to Mifsud but couldn't beat the Reds defence.

    49th minute: Gerhardt fouls Zullo on the left wing, and Adelaide takes the free quickly, working it forward with short passes and coming very close to scoring a third. Heart clears it right on the line and it's an Adelaide corner.

    And now the Heart fans are back in full voice after a silent protest in the first half.

    Heart has made a substitution at half time. It's Mehbrahtu on with Dugandzic making way.

    Second half is under way at AAMI Park.

    Half time at AAMI Park. Adelaide in the perfect position to break their losing streak, while things are not looking good for John Aloisi's men. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    Steven Lustica celebrates his goal.

    46th minute: Another free kick to the Heart, and Dugandzic takes it on the left wing. His kick is a bit of a floater, and Galekovic takes it easily. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    There will be two minutes of additional time.

    45th minute: David Williams brought down just on the halfway line. Melbourne will go forward again right in the shadows of half time.

    44th minute: Corner for Melbourne Heart. Dugandzic takes it, and Kisnorbo, with a free header, sends the ball bouncing just wide.

    43rd minute: Galekovic caught out again as he left his area to deal with a long, high Heart ball. He sends it out for a throw.

    42nd minute: Carrusca's third corner in a row goes harmlessly out over the top of the net. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    41st minute: Two corners in a row for the Reds - make that three - as the Heart scrappily defends Adelaide's attacks.

    39th minute: Adelaide appealing for handball as the Heart defence and Redmayne scramble to stop a third goal. Referee lets play go on but Gombau is unhappy. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    37th minute: Huge chance for Mifsud! Galekovic was out wandering and Mifsud beat him well outside the area. On the left wing, he brough it back inside and curled the ball towards the far post. But Mifsud just has no luck in front of goal, and it just drifted wide. Huge letoff for Galekovic and the Reds there.

    36th minute: Melbourne defnce just giving the ball away far too easily to Adelaide. It's allowing the Reds to heap on the pressure.

    34th minute: Cirio does well to keep the ball in pressed right up against the line on the left wing. He sends a cross in but picks Redmayne out. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    31st minute: But though Mifsud did well to shake of his defender and find Ramsay wide, Heart is still scoreless. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    30th minute: A shaky Heart defence just barely clears Adelaide's forays forward once, twice, and then again. Finally a desperate clearance finds Mifsud deep into attack..

    29th minute: Ferreira goes down on the edge of the area but the referee waves away in appeals for a free kick. Heart breaks forward but Williams' cross inside is cut off by the Adelaide defence. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    27th minute: Adelaide again works the ball forward with quick passes and Heart can't get a look in. A beautiful ball to Cirio, switched to the left wing, sees him send the ball into the area. But it was a floater and Redmayne took it easily.

    21st minute: Another corner for the Reds with Carrusca sending the ball in. Cleared easily by Heart.

    25th minute: The Reds thread some passes through the Heart defence and Jeronimo takes the shot on the edge of the area. It's well wide of the target though, doesn't trouble Redmayne. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    19th minute: Corner for Adelaide is cleared after a moment of nerves and Heart breaks down the wing. When they go forward they often have plenty of space but once again, they are unable to take the chance. This time Ramsay sends the the ball sailing over the net.

    15th minute: GOAL ADELAIDE

    Andrew Redmayne blocks the first shot on goal but Cirio swoops on the rebound and in space directly in front he slots it home. It was a quick break from the Reds and though there were plenty of Heart defenders in the box, Cirio was unmarked. Disappointing for Heart, who had put a couple of attacking plays together for no reward. Melbourne 0 Adelaide 2

    Another chance for Melbourne Heart goes wide. But they are attacking, and showing positive signs.

    14th minute: Huge chance for Melbourne Heart as Mifsud is denied by Adelaide and Eugene Galekovic. Williams found Mifsud with the forward pass but Galekovic did well to come forward and block the shot at Mifsud's feet.

    12th minute: David Williams is well offside, but the crowd still makes a half-cheer as the ball rolls into the back of the net. Galekovic was caught well outside the area there after his clearing kick rebounded back towards his own goal. But the score remains Melbourne 0 Adelaide 1

    Wielaert has been caught as Adelaide made another bursting run forward, and play is called back for Heart to take the free kick.

    9th minute: But the kick carries everyone and goes out for a goal kick to Melbourne.

    8th minute: Clumsy tackle from Behich hands Adelaide a free kick on the right wing, and the Melbourne wall sets up.

    7th minute: This time it's Melbourne catching the defence out with Mifsud racing forward. With just the keeper ahead of him. He had defenders hot on his tail though, and couldn't get the shot on target.

    Melbourne 0 Adelaide 1

    Referee Strebre Delovski has given Heart defender Kisnorbo a bit of a talking to here. No yellow card for his challenge, but a free kick to Adelaide.

    Adelaide found acres of space through Ferreira down the right wing. He crossed it in to Lustica, whose first shot was deflected, but Kisnorbo couldn't recover in time and Lustica sent the ball sailing past Redmayne for a goal.

    GOAL ADELAIDE!

    In the third minute, it's disaster for Melbourne Heart.

    3rd minute: Behich takes the ball deep into the area for Heart, under some steady pressure from Adelaide's defence. He's forced across the line and it's a goal kick to the Reds.

    And we are under way at AAMI Park with both teams desperate for a win.

    Welcome to our coverage of Sunday evening soccer. Heart host Adelaide United at AAMI Park on a sunny and warm evening in Melbourne.

    Still no Harry Kewell for Melbourne, with Mehbrahtu back on the bench and Mifsud retaking his place in the starting line-up.

    Cassio's hamstring injury has forced him out for Adelaide, while McCain is out with illness.
