Adelaide United Melbourne Victory rivalry
For such a new club, Adelaide United has an intense rivalry with 'local' rivals Melbourne Victory. The rivalry essentially started in the 2006-07 when there was an altercation between then Adelaide United manager John Kosmina and Victory captain Kevin Muscat. Muscat knocked Kosmina to the ground when retrieving the ball and Kosmina grabbed the player's throat in retaliation. That same year, Victory thumped United 6-0 in the A-League Grand Final. Adelaide United finally got their own back when they beat Melbourne Victory 4-1, finally bringing to an end a dismal 10-game losing streak against the side from Victoria.
