BENGALURU FC  <b><font color=red> 1-0 </b></font> DELHI DYNAMOS
ISL PRESS RELEASE : Bengaluru FC needed a late goal from Udanta Singh to beat Delhi Dynamos FC at the Sree Kanteerava Stadium on Monday. The match was Bengaluru captain Sunil Chhetri’s 150th appearance for the club and was a special occasion for the home fans assembled at the Fortress. Delhi had the better chances throughout the 90 minutes but couldn’t make them count.

The win was the Blues’ fifth victory in a row and took them to the top of the Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) table. Bengaluru are now three points clear of second placed FC Goa with a game in hand. For Delhi, the result summed up what has been a disappointing season so far. The Lions are bottom of the table with just four points from nine matches and are virtually out of the contention for a top four finish.

Udanta Singh scored the only goal of the match on the 87th minute. Delhi dominated the first-half and Gurpreet Singh Sandhu had to make some crucial saves to keep Bengaluru in the match. Bengaluru extended their winning streak to five matches with the victory.

The home team dominated possession in the early goings and found an opening on the ninth minute after Xisco Hernandez's brilliant long ball played Chhetri in. With the entire Sree Kanteerava Stadium holding its breath in anticipation of a Chhetri goal on his 150th appearance for Bengaluru, Delhi goalkeeper Albino Gomes made a crucial interception to disappoint the home crowd.

The away side got themselves back into the match as the half progressed and carved out a couple of half chances for themselves. Adria Carmona tested Gurpreet Singh Sandhu at the near post but his shot didn't have enough venom to worry the Bengaluru keeper.

The away team soon overcame their early jitters and was engineering some dangerous openings. Some great work by Nandhakumar Sekar down the right set up Andrija Kaludjerovic for a shot from a favourable position. The Serbian, however, missed the target and let Bengaluru off the hook. Soon after, Lallianzuala Chhangte found himself one-on-one against the keeper after beating Bengaluru's offside trap. Gurpreet made himself big to deny Chhangte and keep the score 0-0.

Gurpreet had to come to his team's rescue again a few minutes later when he stretched out a foot to keep out Nandhakumar's drive from the right. With both of Delhi's wingers, Chhangte and Nandhakumar, operating at full steam, the Bengaluru defence was constantly worried throughout the half. Delhi were the better team in the first 45 minutes but had no goals to show for it. The teams went in the break level at 0-0.

After being outplayed in the first-half, Bengaluru tried to get off the blocks fast after the restart. Chhetri’s scuffed shot from the edge of the box almost fell to Chencho Gyeltshen at the far post, but the Bhutanese international hesitated and the chance was gone.

Bengaluru head coach Carles Cuadrat brought on Erik Paartalu in place of Rino Anto within five minutes of the second-half to try and wrestle the midfield back from the visitors. The Australian's introduction added some much-needed steel to Bengaluru's midfield and allowed Udanta and Chhetri much more freedom going forward. Delhi, however, continued to chip in at the Bengaluru defence and came close with Carmona's volley. Gurpreet was well-placed to deal with the shot.

Bengaluru's Xisco had a big chance to grab the elusive first goal of the match. Substitute Semboi Haokip set him up beautifully with a clever chip, but the Spaniard’s shot was too close to Gomes. On the other end, the Lions' wastefulness in front of the goal continued after Kaludjerovic failed to keep his header on target from five yards out. The miss would prove to be a costly one for the visitors. On the 87th minute, Udanta finally broke the deadlock with a diagonal shot from outside the box. The youngster's shot took a nick from one of Delhi's defenders and went inside the goal off the inside of the post. 1-0 to Bengaluru.

Bengaluru held on till the final whistle to ensure the victory, while Delhi were left to rue their missed chances. Bengaluru youngster Nishu Kumar was a livewire on the field tonight, popping up wherever his team needed him the most. He worked tirelessly throughout the ninety minutes and put in a shift to remember. He is tonight’s Hero of the Match.

ISL MEDIA RELEASE : FC Goa’s constant persistence to press harder up front paid dividends as the Gaurs came from behind with two late goals in gap of 8 minutes to snatch three points away from the Delhi’s Lions 3-2 in an entertaining game of the Hero Indian Super League at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Goa on Thursday.

Bikramjit Singh's long-range strike put the visitors in the lead as early as the sixth minute. It took almost 50 minutes and a change of side for Goa to find the equalizer through Edu Bedia at 54th minute. However, Delhi found the gap in host defense once again to go 2-1 with a Lallianzuala Chhangte goal in 70th minute. But the Gaurs known for their aggressive play breached Delhi with late goals by Brandon Fernandes and Edu Bedia in the 82nd and 89th minute respectively.

Delhi Dynamos drew first blood through Bikramjit Singh as early as the sixth minute of the match. The midfielder received Adria Carmona's pass on the edge of the box and curled a magnificent shot into the top left corner, leaving Mohammad Nawaz helpless in goal. Ferran Corominas looked hungry to score on his return from suspension as he forced Francisco Dorronsoro to a good low save to his right at the other end. Jackichand Singh crossed the ball into the box from the left and Goa's leading goalscorer skipped past defenders inside the box before pulling the trigger.

Seriton Fernandes' ball from the back allowed Lenny Rodrigues to dribble into space down the right flank and deliver a teasing ball across the face of goal that Dorronsoro's outstretched hands failed to meet. Jackichand Singh met the cross at the far post but directed his effort wide.
Constant vigilance seemed to be the order for the Delhi defence as they thwarted Goa's forays forward with a well organized offside trap. Marcos Tebar missed a free header at the far post from a Carmona free-kick. Marti Crespi headed wide from handshaking distance from Carmona's free-kick at the stroke of half-time as the visitors threatened to pull ahead.

FC Goa's increased pressure on the Delhi defence after the restart yielded a deserved equaliser in the 54th minute. An excellent build-up saw Corominas release Mandar Rao Dessai into space on the left flank and the Indian winger's perfect cross into the centre was slotted home by Edu Bedia. Goa's midfield took control of the game after the equaliser and the hosts strung passes together in the attacking third to pin the visitors onto the backfoot.

However, Mihelic's introduction gave Delhi renewed energy in the attacking third. Delhi's persistence was rewarded with a second goal in the 70th minute. Mihelic's cross into the box was backheeled into the path of Lallianzuala Chhangte by Nandhakumar from the byline. The young winger made no mistake from close-range to put the visitors ahead.

Mihelic threatened with his cross again, this time from the right flank. Chhangte attempted a diving header from the centre of the box to guide the ball into the net but failed to test Nawaz. Lobera's response was to bring on Brandon Fernandes in place of Jackichand Singh and the substitute pulled the hosts level in the 82nd minute. The Indian winger picked up Dessai's pass into the centre and beat Dorronsoro with a powerful shot from the edge of the box. Goa found the winner in the 89th minute when Boumous delivered a delightful free-kick into the centre where Bedia glanced a header into the net.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Late strikes from Federico Gallego and Bartholomew Ogbeche sealed three points for NorthEast United FC against Delhi Dynamos in the Hero Indian Super League 2018 (ISL) at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Tuesday.

The hosts failed to create enough chances to score and were outplayed by the visitors who couldn't find a breakthrough until the 82nd minute. A moment of individual brilliance from Gallego and a clinical strike by Ogbeche helped NorthEast United climb to the top of the table with 11 points, although they have played a match more than FC Goa (10 points).

This was NorthEast’s third victory on the road and the best start they have had to any of their campaigns. NorthEast United spurned a golden chance to take an early lead five minutes into the match. A pacy surge forward by the hosts was led by Ogbeche who played a one-two with Redeem Tlang before unleashing a dipping effort from the edge of the box. The goalkeeper stood no chance of keeping it out but luckily for him, the effort hit the crossbar.

The visitors were attacking in numbers with Tlang's exploits on the right flank pinning both Nandhakumar Sekar and Narayan Das into their own half. Lallianzuala Chhangte's pace was put to the test when an overhit backpass placed Robert Lalthlamuana in a spot of bother in the visitor's half. The defender managed to get to the ball before the Mizo-born winger and averted a defensive catastrophe against the run of play.

Delhi could have shocked the visitors with a lead when Pritam Kotal rose highest to get a corner-kick delivery but the ball sailed over the bar.NorthEast United had a couple more chances before the break. Rowllin Borges received Tlang's cross into the box, controlled it with a delightful touch and released a shot that was blocked by Rana Gharami. The resulting corner-kick was aimed for Juan Mascia in the centre who flicked it to the near post where Mateo Grgic's header destined for the net was brilliantly kept out by Dorronsoro.

Gombau responded to the visitors' onslaught by adding Vinit Rai into Delhi's midfield as the hosts were struggling to keep the ball.NorthEast’s first chance after the break saw Gallego's powerful shot take a deflection off a sliding Gianni Zuiverloon and went straight into the hands of goalkeeper Francisco Dorronsoro.

At the other end, Zuiverloon stood over a free-kick outside the box on the left and swung it towards the far post for Andrija Kaludjerovic who couldn't keep his shot on target, much to the dismay of the large crowd in the stands. The hosts had their chance in the 78th minute when a long ball by Marti Crespi fell perfectly for Kaludjerovic at the edge of the box. The striker played a one-two with Marcos Tebar whose well-weighted through-ball had Kaludjerovic attempt a finesse shot which was blocked and deflected wide by a sliding Mato Grgic.

NorthEast United finally got their goal through a moment of brilliance from Gallego. The Uruguayan midfielder picked up the ball from the left flank, skipped past his marker, surged into the box before sending a stunning finish into the bottom right corner.

Romeo Fernandes' poor pass back to Pritam Kotal was intercepted by Gallego who charged down the left flank and squared the ball to Ogbeche. The Nigerian forward sent the ball into the net to complete NorthEast United's masterclass in Delhi.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Mumbai City FC blanked a profligate Delhi Dynamos FC 2-0 in a Hero Indian Super League 2018 encounter at the Mumbai Football Arena here on Saturday. Jorge Costa’s side had goals in either half from Moudou Sougou (30’) and Arnold Issoko (77’) to thank as they bounced back from their 5-0 drubbing at Goa in style. The three points took the Islanders to the fifth spot on the table while Delhi remain at the eighth position.

It were Delhi Dynamos who began the match brightly, fashioning a couple of good opportunities in the first 15 minutes. Romeo Fernandes blazed a volley over after a Lallianzuala Chhangte cross was deflected towards him before Andrija Kaludjerovic forced a save from Mumbai City custodian Ravi Kumar.

It seemed Gombau’s men would break the deadlock but it were the hosts who took the lead around the hour mark from a long cross-field ball from Rafael Bastos. The industrious Arnold Issoko got at the end of the ball, before sending in a low cross for Sougou. The striker held off Rana Gharami and turned the ball home. The Islanders, with their tails up, started to impose themselves and should have doubled the lead when Sougou saw a shot palmed away by goalkeeper Francisco Dorronsoro.

Mumbai, who ended the first-half well, started strong after the break as well and were awarded a penalty within five minutes. The impressive Issoko was adjudged to have been brought down by Gharami inside the box by the referee. However, Bastos sent the spot-kick wide of the target, despite the goalkeeper diving the wrong way.

Desperate for an equaliser, Delhi Dynamos were left to rue their poor finishing as Kaludjerovic wasted two good chances in just a minute. First, he shot wide after Chhangte picked him out with a good cross before seeing a shot from a tight angle bounce back off the crossbar. A few minutes later, Chhangte saw a shot tipped over the bar by Ravi Kumar as frustration mounted for the visitors.

They were made to pay for those misses in the 77th minute by a swift counter-attack from Mumbai City. Bastos sent Issoko clear through on goal and all he had to do was evade a charging Dorronsoro and roll the ball in to make it 2-0. Mumbai City saw off Dynamos’ concerted efforts to engineer an unlikely comeback with relative ease, leaving Delhi to search for their first win of the season.

ISL MEDIA RELEASE: Goalkeeper Francisco Dorronsoro delivered a masterclass as Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC played out an engaging goalless stalemate in the Hero Indian Super League 2018 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Tuesday. Chennaiyin FC had the better chances but could not beat the Spanish goalkeeper who refused to concede with brilliant saves throughout the match. The visitors couldn’t get a breakthrough but the point earned lifts them from the bottom of the table. The teams are still searching for their first win of the season.

Andrea Orlandi could have opened the scoring for Chennaiyin FC as early as the second minute of the match. The midfielder rose the highest to head a corner kick from Isaac V but Dorronsoro got down low to pull off a stunning reflex save. Raphael Augusto then looked to be in the mood to score as the trickster surged up the field from midfield before taking aim from 40 yards. His piledriver lacked enough force to trouble Dorronsoro.
The Delhi goalkeeper was called into action again five minutes from half-time. A defence-splitting through-ball by Augusto released Carlos Salom behind the backline. The striker squared the ball to an unmarked Thoi Singh who took a touch before sending a powerful strike that was kept out.

Delhi's first shot of the game came at the stroke of half-time. Lallianzuala Chhangte beat his marker on the left flank, burst forward before crossing perfectly towards Andrija Kaludjerovic. The striker headed the ball first-time and forced goalkeeper Karanjit Singh to a save.
The visitors threatened again soon after the restart. Carlos Salom's first-touch to receive Augusto's through ball from midfield was wonderful but the same could not be said for the end product as the striker sent the ball wide.

The hosts were struggling to find gaps at the other end. Kaludjerovic cut an isolated figure up front and crosses into the box were dealt well by the Chennaiyin backline. The defending champions had a glorious chance to score a breakthrough goal in the 70th minute when a cleared corner kick turned into a counter-attack. Augusto released Isaac into space down the left flank. The winger surged forward and squared the ball to an unmarked Salom whose shot was brilliantly saved by the onrushing goalkeeper.

The Delhi custodian put on a fine show under the bar. The Spaniard flew out from his line to punch away a delightful cross from the left by Thoi as the Lions held on for a point.

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Kerala Blasters were thwarted at the fag end for the second consecutive Hero Indian Super League (ISL) match as Delhi Dynamos held them to a 1-1 draw at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Kochi on Saturday. A 48th minute strike from CK Vineeth was cancelled out by Andrija Kaluderovic’s 84th minute header as Delhi’s run of scoring a goal extended to 14 matches.

Amidst a heavy downpour in Kochi, it were the visitors who took control of the game in the first quarter with Kerala struggling to get hold of possession. Lallianzuala Chhangte, in particular, was looking threatening down the left flank for the Dynamos and his duel with Sandesh Jhingan was proving to be an intriguing affair.

Against the run of play, the hosts came close to grabbing the lead in the 22nd minute. A quick breakaway and a neat one-two between Stojanovic and Sahal Abdul Samad saw the Serbian striker unleash a sumptuous shot on the Delhi goal. Goalkeeper Francisco Dorronsoro was, however, alert enough to deal with the danger.

A mistake from goalkeeper Naveen Kumar moments later gave Kaluderovic two stabs at the Blasters goal but a goalmouth scramble saw the ball ultimately cleared. David James’ men then had two gilt-edged chances in succession following a quick counter-attack initiated by Vineeth. Lalruatthara’s low cross found its way back to Vineeth who scuffed his shot with the goal at his mercy. The rebound fell to Stojanovic who smashed the side-netting from an acute angle.

The best chance of the first period fell to Delhi in the dying minutes following Mihelic’s excellent ball to find Romeo Fernandes. The Goan winger squared the ball up for Zuiverloon but the Dutchman’s cushioned effort scraped agonisingly wide of the post with Naveen Kumar well beaten.

Matej Poplatnik was promptly introduced after the half-time interval but it was Vineeth who had the crowd roaring in delight. A Blasters’ corner was only half cleared to Poplatnik who sent the ball immediately back into the box for Vineeth. The striker shrugged off the challenge from Rana Gharami far too easily before poking a clever finish past Dorronsoro.

At the other end, Lakic-Pesic denied Romeo with an excellent block but the hosts should have doubled their lead when Seiminlen Doungel and Poplatnik found themselves in a two-on-one situation. Doungel went for goal instead of releasing his unmarked team-mate and paid the price with his effort going wide.

With Jhingan injured on the floor due to a cramp, Delhi found a deserved equalizer in the 84th minute through Kaluderovic as he headed home from inside the box. Kerala failed to pick three points for the second game running on home soil, thanks to a late goal conceded while Dynamos are still searching for their first win.

DELHI DYNAMOS <b><font color=red> 1-1 </b></font> PUNE CITY FC

ISL PRESS RELEASE : Miguel Angel Portugal’s Pune City managed to earn a hard fought 1-1 draw at death against home side Delhi Dynamos in their Hero Indian Super League opener at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in Delhi. Delhi seemed set for all three points after a wonderous long-range strike from Rana Gharami (44’) but for second-half substitute Diego Carlos who equalised with two minutes left on the clock. Rana Gharami became the first Indian footballer to score the goal in ISL 2018-19 season.

Coach Josep Gombau had Delhi Dynamos line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Andrija Kaluderovic leading the lines. Former Pune City midfielder Marcos Tebar started in midfield with Bikramjit Singh while Nandhakumar and Lallianzuala Chhangte provided the width. Pune City playing a 4-3-3 formation started brightly, with Ashique Kuruniyan finding a lot of space down the left flank. An early cross from the youngster almost found Emiliano Alfaro inside the box.

Just after quarter of an hour, Delhi started to assert themselves and fashioned several key chances. With a minute to go for the half-time whistle, Delhi Dynamos got a deserved lead through an outrageous strike from Rana Gharami. The defender got on the ball from about 40 yards out and hit a thunderous strike that flew into the top corner, much to everyone’s wonder. The second half got off to a slow start as both teams failed to create chances of note. Emiliano Alfaro cut a lone figure up front for Pune City while Delhi Dynamos pressed well but could not trouble the Stallions’ defence.

The Dynamos continued to exploit the wings and should have doubled their lead in the 67th minute. Nandhakumar went on a brilliant run down the right wings and squared the ball for Kaluderovic who met it with a weak left-foot that saw the effort trickle well wide. Portugal threw on Diego Carlos as he searched for an equaliser while Gombau sent on Romeo Fernandes for Nandhakumar. It was the latter who would fashion a chance as he galloped down the right wing and almost found Kaluderovic inside the box, but for an alert Mills.

The Stallions did get a chance though as a hopeful cross from the left fell to Jonathan Vila on the edge of the area. The Spaniard’s fierce volley drew a fantastic reaction save from Francisco Dorronsoro. With Pune turning desperate for a goal, Delhi had two good chances to score a second. First, Ganni Zuiverloon failed to direct a volley at the backpost from Das’ freekick on target. Then a smart inter-play between Kaluderovic and Chhangte set the latter through on goal but he shot straight at Vishal Kaith.

With two minutes left in the tie, Pune City equalised after brilliant link-up play between Alfaro and Carlos. The Brazilian played in Alfaro inside the box. The Uruguayan passed it back on to Carlos’ path who shifted on to his left and sent an arrowing finish to the far corner. Though Delhi pressed hard to regain their lead, Portugal’s men held on to clinch a point from a tightly-contested clash.
