Melbourne City’s first game since winning the A League title ended in a disappointing defeat.

City clinched their maiden title last Saturday but were aiming to extend a 10-game unbeaten run.

They made a nightmare start in Brisbane though.

James O’Shea gave Brisbane the lead from the spot on six minutes and they never looked back.

The Roar then doubled their lead seven minutes before half-time through Alex Parsons.

A second O’Shea spot-kick on 52 minutes wrapped up the win for Brisbane.
