Desparate Delhi to host upbeat Northeast in must-win tie

Delhi Dynamos

Delhi Dynamos will look to put the defeat against Mumbai City FC behind them when they face in-form NorthEast United at Delhi on Tuesday. Dynamos will be eyeing their first win of the season and put this inconsistent start of the season behind them.

Josep Gombau’s side have been dominating the proceedings but it’s the final product that has led the side down. Dynamos completed more than 500 passes in their last game and had 24 shots on goal, but the attacking line has failed to find the net with striker Andrija Kaluderovic finding the net just once this season.

Against Mumbai, it was yet again on the counter attacks that the side conceded goals and it is something Gombau and his team are working on fixing.

“We are conceding goals in transition and that is something we need to work on. We are playing more in the opposition half and then getting hit on the counter attack. We are working on fixing that.”

“Tomorrow is the day that hopefully things change for us. It’s a new game and I hope that we rectify our mistakes and start to take our chances. We need to be more proficient upfront,” Gombau added.

Marcos Tebar remains the only concern for Dynamos heading into this game with the Spaniard nursing a hamstring injury.

The visitors meanwhile come into this game placed 2nd in the league and much of it has been due to the fine form of striker Ogbeche who has found the back of the net five times so far. Gombau though is hopeful that the Dynamos defense can stop the strong NorthEast attack.

“Tomorrow will be tough. They have a strong attacking force and it will be a big task for us to stop them. I am hoping that we can do well and keep a clean sheet.”
