The 2012 A-League Grand Final at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Sunday night was the seventh edition of the A-League Grand Final. Defending champions Brisbane Roar took on Perth Glory with the aim of being the first team to defend their A-League title. The Roars did in the end achieve their title defence but amid controversy.
The Brisbane Roars won the match in injury-time due to a penalty given for their Albanian striker Besart Berisha, who is seen to go down after firing an airhole with no contact from any Perth Glory defender. Berisha himself took the penalty to seal the victory.
Earlier in the game an Ivan Franjic own goal had given Perth Glory a surprise lead, but the Roar would hit back with a Besart Berisha header off a cross from German Thomas Broich before Berisha would win it for Brisbane late in injury-time with his second of the night.
