A goal in stoppage time by Mark Bridge gave Sydney FC a deserved 3-2 away win over Shanghai Shenhua at the Hongkou Stadium in their Group H Asian Champions League game last night.

Sydney, who were without Swiss defender Stephan Keller, trailed twice against the home side, but goals by Brazilian Bruno Cazarine drew them level each time.
