Delhi Dynamos FC hosted Chennaiyin FC in the Hero Indian Super League season 5 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi today.
Visitors started off with an attacking note by winning a corner immediately in the 1st minute and testing Frransisco on Delhi’s goal. On the other end. Delhi too built on couple of attacks but failed to test Karanjit. Delhi however kept the pressure on and held on to the ball possession. Both the teams played good game, trying to build up attack with a series of passes, but failed to cause any danger on the either end.
Chennaiyin FC though had no good possession, they defended well by pushing the home side back every time they tried to build up an attack and looked for counter attacks often. In the final few minutes of the first half, visitors got in series of attacks and tested Fransisco on the goal, but couldn’t get the break through. Andrija missed to direct the ball away from Karanjit into the nets in the 45th minute when Chhangtae got in a perfect cross in from the left wing to find Andrija in the box. This was the last action of the first half with nil nil scoreline.
Chennaiyin FC, who still looked for their first win of the season, kicked-off the second half and again had an early chance in the second minute of the half. Carlos Salom was the man who failed to keep his shot on target. Machans continued their attacking game as in the first half along with good ball possession. 65 minutes on the clock and the visitors caused more and more problems to the home side with building in series of attacks.
In the 70th minute, Chennaiyin FC again missed a glorious opportunity created from a counter attack. It was Carlos Salom again to miss the one on one chance as Fransisco came off his line to create pressure and to lessen shooting chances for Salom. Raphael tried his luck with a shot in the 85th minute which was brilliantly saved by the Fransisco conceding a corner.
Both the teams struggled to get the break through and were forced to end the game with nil-nil scoreline. This was the first goalless draw of the Hero ISL season 5.
