A 10-man Melbourne City held on at Dolphin Stadium on Tuesday night to open their A-League campaign with a 1-0 win over Brisbane Roar.

A 53rd-minute goal from Connor Metcalfe proved the difference, with the impressive midfielder combining well with former Roar striker Jamie Maclaren before curling the ball home past Brisbane goalkeeper Jamie Young.

City had to work hard for their win in hot conditions, particularly after the dismissal of their Uruguayan midfielder in the 69th minute.

Having been booked 17 minutes earlier, Luna was unlucky to be shown a second yellow card by referee Adam Kersey for a foul on Brisbane midfielder Rahmat Akbari.

But despite being a man down for more than 20 minutes, City defended strongly to give coach Patrick Kisnorbo a win in his first game as an A-League head coach.
