A BRILLIANT COUNTER led by Malouda and finished by Gadze saw to it that the Delhi Dynamos were 1-0 up at half time as their keeper Toni Doblas denied the visiting NorthEast United a chance to score in spite of being more attacking through the period.
NONE WOULD HAVE THOUGHT that almost halfway through the second season of the Indian Super League (ISL), it will be local striker Sunil Chhetri who would head the list of goal scorers. But it is indeed the 31-year-old who sits atop the table with six strikes from four matches for his side Mumbai City FC in his first season.
AMIR KHAN, top British professional boxer who is currently in India, will be watching the Indian Super League (ISL) contest between Delhi Dynamos and NorthEast United at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on Tuesday.
AS THE ISL APPROACHES the end of its first leg, we take a look at how the Round 7 fixtures are potentially going to turn out.
A MEMORABLE HAT-TRICK from Sunil Chhetri and one goal apiece from Sony Norde and Frantz Bertin saw Mumbai City run riot over visitors NorthEast United all night to secure a massive 5-1 win and ascend to the second spot in the ISL points table.
A BRILLIANT BRACE FROM Sunil Chhetri saw Mumbai City end the first half in a commanding position with a 2-1 lead over NorthEast United in ISL tonight.
OCCUPYING THE 6th and 7th place on the ISL table with 7 and 6 points to their names, Mumbai City and NorthEast United's encounter tonight has a lot on stake for both the teams. It will decide who gets to turn their two-win comeback into a three-win streak and who gets dealt another blow in their campaign.
THE ROUND 5 BROUGHT to us the fact that the ISL contest is far from over and it's early to say we've got our definitive top four already. The shaky starters who stumbled over the first few blocks steadied their ships and started sailing, while a few others who had begun on a bright note were plunged into depths of woe.
CHENNAIYIN FC MIDFIELDER Harmanjot Singh Khabra has been fined and suspended for four matches for misbehaving with match officials during the Indian Super League (ISL) clash against North East United FC at the Indira Gandhi Stadium in Guwahati on October 20. Both the teams were additionally fined for misconduct during the match.
Having to live up to the kind of reputation TFG has built over the last few rounds, we venture to call the games of Round 6 of the Indian Super League. With the title race thickening and teams starting to have their own days of shine, things are only getting tougher. This round has a double-header for the Mumbaikars, both at home. The other Dark Horses are also in play, two against each other. A very interesting round which will set the trend.
