A first-half goal from All White Kosta Barbarouses goal has given the Melbourne Victory a crucial win over Yokohama F Marinos, keeping them alive in football's Asian Champions League.

For the second straight ACL match, the Victory yielded most of the possession and the chances, and could be very thankful Yokohama appeared to leave their shooting boots back in Japan.

However they were able to hold on for the 1-nil win, their first clean sheet in more than three months.
