9:25 pm: GOAL AGAIN!!! Delhi on a rampage as Matias Mirabaje gives his team 3-0 lead in the 65th minute!

9:19 pm: Delhi has suddenly started dominating the game. I wonder what type of pep talk they got from their coach Miguel Portugal.

9:16 pm: GOAL!!! Delhi scores and this time its Chhangte himself who chipped the ball over Pune’s keeper.

8:47 pm: At half time teams level at 0-0; Marcelino, Uche struggle.

8:43 pm: We are less than 10 minutes from half-time but no goals yet in this match.

8:40 pm: That is a boring half, both the teams have struggled to keep the possession, and whenever their is a supply from the flank, strikers are absent. Forwards have failed to do their duty properly so far.

8:35 pm: Lucca with a great cross, but no one at the end of the ball. Where the hell are Pune City strikers?? No link up play between the stallion players.

8:43 pm: Pune’s Marcos Tebar has been increasingly looking dangerous. On a couple of occasions he managed to slip through Delhi defence. But he is yet to make the efforts count!

8:31 pm: Pune and Delhi both looking for a breakthrough but none have so far produced any threat.

8:27 pm: Dynamos wins their third corner. Changte takes the corner and plays a short pass. Tried for a variation but could not do much with it.

8:24 pm: CLOSE! Sarthak’s ball finds Alfaro who takes a shot on target but Albino collects the ball safely.

8:21 pm: That was close, PWEHH!! Albino Gomes comes to the rescue.

8:20 pm: Delhi continues to attack from the left flank. Ralte has been putting the ball in the penalty area with ease.

8:12 pm: So far, Dynamos have had an upper hand whereas Pune has been on a back foot and is trying for counter-attack.

8:07 pm: Delhi’s left back Ralte is a pacey lad. He has been providing his forwards with good deliveries and if this continues it is just a matter of time when the visitors take a lead.

8:05 pm: In the first 5 minutes of the game, both teams have announced themselves in the game. Marcelino is going to give a tough night to his former club, Delhi with his quick foot skills and pace.

8:00 pm: Delhi kick off the match, however, in the very first second Pune forced to make a substitution as their midfielder Jewel Raja gets injured. It is still unclear what exactly happened but the game is now underway.

7:52 pm: Players have entered the ground.

7:40 pm: KEY STAT:

1) The Lions’ only defeat at the hands of FC Pune City came the last time these two sides met in Pune.
2) Delhi Dynamos scored 29 goals in Hero ISL 2016, the most by any team.
3) FC Pune City scored just 13 goals in Hero ISL 2016, lowest by any team.

7:30 pm: Key Player for Delhi Dynamos FC- Romeo Fernandes: Having played for FC Goa over the first three editions, Romeo Fernandes is set for a fresh challenge with the Dynamos in Hero ISL 2017-18. A pacey winger, the 25-year-old will offer the Lions quality from the flanks. He scored the 100th goal in Hero ISL history and possesses the quick feet and deft touches to bring up several other milestones this season.

7:08 pm: Key Player for FC Pune City- Marcelinho:  Hero ISL’s Golden Boot winner from last season will take to the field against his former club in the very first match of the new season. Marcelinho was at his prolific best last season, scoring and providing in abundance. Defenders find it difficult to keep pace with the talented Brazilian, who’ll want to emulate if not better his performances from last year in the upcoming season.
