Adelaide United 6 – Wellington Phoenix 1 (A-League, December 5, 2008) Adelaide moved to the top of the table with a resounding defeat of Wellington. Sasa Ognenovski and Cristiano netted in the first half, and although Fred scored for the Phoenix in the 56th minute, a Cassio brace, Cristiano’s second of the night, and Travis Dodd’s sixth in stoppage time completed the rout.

Central Coast Mariners 1 – Queensland Roar 1 (A-League, December 6, 2008) Sergio van Dijk fired the visitors in front with a brilliant left foot drive from 30-yards in the 11th minute.
