Mumbai, Dec 28: A massive seven points separate Delhi Dymos from Mumbai City FC as Indias top cities battle it out in the Indian Super League (ISL) season four contest on Friday evening.
The game will be played at the Mumbai Football Are in Andheri here, where the home side has lost once and conceded goals just twice in three matches.
Dymos are in the midst of a wretched run of five defeats in a row while Mumbai City have lost just once in their last four matches. The stakes are very different for both sides: a win for Delhi will take them off the bottom of the table; for Mumbai City, three points means equalling table-toppers Cheniyin FC.
It could not have been more stark, but such have been Dymos’ woes this season that it is not surprising. They’ve shipped an incredible 15 goals this season and scored just five. Needless to say, they are in dire need of a positive result.
“It’s not about pressure but it is high time that we start winning games. That’s what we’ve come to do here. Everything was right: the training, the team and the performances as well. The only thing not working is the thrust in the fil third and the finishing,” said Delhi Dymos assistant coach Shakti Chauhan. “In today’s world, teams use video alysis. It’s a big boon for coaches and everybody is studying us. We need to have an extra edge in this sort of a competitive atmosphere, which we don’t seem to have,” he added. IANS
