NEUFC, Delhi Dynamo play draw

After winning three matches,  NEUFC played draw with Delhi Dynamo at the packed Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi on Saturday evening.

Delhi Dynamos were lucky to surge ahead after Kean Lewis capitalised on a goalkeeping error from Subrata Paul in the 38th minute but the visitors earned a point through Emiliano Alfaro in the 51st minute.

The draw left NorthEast United FC at the top of the table with 10 points from five matches while Delhi Dynamos have five points from three matches, the same as Atletico de Kolkata.

Delhi Dynamos got the breakthrough in the 38th minute. Marcelinho's corner saw goalkeeper Paul completely miss the flight of the ball and the ball fell nicely for Lewis, who controlled it well and directed it into the goal.

NorthEast United fought their way back into the match six minutes after the second half kicked off. Typically, it came from a defensive mistake by Delhi Dynamos after Ruben gave the ball away to Velez. The Argentinean striker, who troubled his markers with pace and swift movements, then picked up Alfaro whose shot was blocked by Delhi defender Chinglensana Singh. However, the rebound fell for Alfaro again and this time he made no mistake to put his team on level terms.
