Dynamos, Highlanders share spoils
Delhi Dynamos? Kean Lewis scores past NEU custodian Subrata Paul for the first goal

New Delhi

The Highlanders have 10 points from five matches while Dynamos have five points from three matches. Delhi Dynamos took the lead in the 38th minute when Marcelo Pereira curled a corner kick with his left boot. The NorthEast goalkeeper Subrata Paul came off his line to punch the ball away but made a howler. 

The ball then found Kean Lewis who had an open net in front of himself and sent the ball into the back of the net without any mistake. NorthEast equalised in dramatic fashion in the second half when Velez took the ball and sprinted on the right flank. He drew the Delhi keeper towards him and then passed it to Emiliano Alfaro. 

Alfaro first shot was excellently blocked by Chinglesana. However, the rebound fell to Alfaro who made use of the chance and sent the ball into the net. 

Momentum, history favour ATK against Goa

Atletico de Kolkata are unlikely to let go of the chance to compound the woes of their fierce rivals as they take on FC Goa in a fourth round encounter of the Indian Super League at Rabindra Sarobar Stadium here on Sunday. Atletico de Kolkata have five points in their first three matches but their rivals from Goa are at the bottom of the table, unable to win in three attempts. Goa’s start to the league is the worst in three years and Atletico de Kolkata, who enjoy an unbeaten record against FC Goa in six matches, know they can now add to their points tally.

Atletico de Kolkata shared the spoils with Chennaiyin FC in the opening match, then pocketed all points from Kerala Blasters and drew against Mumbai City FC in their last match.
