She's done it all in a 15-year career, but a new experience awaits Melbourne Victory veteran Melissa Barbieri on Sunday - keeping goal in a W-League derby.
Australia's Asian Cup-winning captain is back in Victory colours after four years away from her home state, but returns to Melbourne to find it a two-horse town.
Melbourne City announced their arrival in the W-League with a 6-0 thumping of Sydney FC in their first match last weekend, while Victory struggled to a 2-1 home defeat to Perth Glory.
But Barbieri says her side can find inspiration in the loss from the injury of Selin Kuralay.
The 30-year-old suffered a season-ending knee injury in her comeback game after five years out of the sport.
An ACL injury is a savage blow for any athlete, let alone a female footballer playing in a semi-professional league with a smaller safety net.
Barbieri says she wants to honour the former Matilda's effort on Sunday.
"She made a lot of sacrifices to get onto the park with us, and to have a crucial member of our team go down, you don't want her to feel like it was all for nothing," she told AAP.
"A lot of people told her not to come back because of her knees, her age, but she said `no, it's something I want to do', and she loved doing it.
"It's brought us closer together."
As a long-time advocate for the women's game, Barbieri is delighted the marquee match will be broadcast on free-to-air TV and staged at AAMI Park as part of an A-League double-header.
But she says anyone looking for the spite or nasty edge that characterises derby duels in the men's game are likely to be disappointed.
"In female football culture, we play for the camaraderie," she said.
"We never hate other teams, but I wouldn't mind if the fans took care of that for us and they can get that banter going ... that's the exciting part of having a cross-town rivalry.
"I can't wait for Sunday, it's another thing I can tick off my bucket list."
