Adelaide United have beaten bitter A-League rivals Melbourne Victory 4-2 in a night to forget for former Reds favourite Marcos Flores.

Flores was booed by a record crowd of 14,115 with every touch at Hindmarsh Stadium and could not influence proceedings as he watched his former side pile on four goals in a frenetic and action-packed opening 32 minutes.

Amid a series of rash challenges that saw six yellow cards brandished in the first half of Friday’s game, Adelaide striker Evan Kostopoulos opened the scoring on two minutes with his first goal since September.

Andrew Nabbout levelled for the Victory immediately in reply to the Reds’ opener before the hosts pulled away with three goals in 11 minutes.

Fabio Ferreira scored either side of Marcelo Carrusca’s breathtaking curling finish with two classy goals – the first a thunderous strike and the second a neat header.

Melbourne responded after half-time when Marcos Rojas reduced the deficit, but it was all the visitors could produce in a static and rigid second half.

The win saw Adelaide move first ahead of the Central Coast Mariners, who visit Newcastle United on Saturday.
