On Monday and Tuesday games 16 and 17 of the Hero Indian Super League were played out, with Pune City and Kerala Blasters sharing the spoils of a 1-1 draw and Delhi Dynamos holding Mumbai FC to a 3-3 draw.
Pune fought hard to equalise with Kerala Blasters in their home game at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Stadium on Monday evening, after they opened their account with the fastest goal of the ISL so far this season.
French defender Cedric Hengbart found the back of the net in the 3rd minute from the first corner after Narayan Das failed to get the distance or power necessary to clear the ball.
Pune skipper and marquee player Mohameed Sissoko equalised in the 69th minute, after his shot from the edge of the box deflected off Hughes giving Nandy no chance in goal.
This result see’s Blasters climb one place ahead of Chennaiyin to occupy 5th place, whilst Pune remain in 7th.
After starting the campaign with a win, Delhi Dynamos had their third successive draw with Mumbai City on Tuesday night at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.
The match was the highest scoring game so far of the season with a brace from Mumbai midfielder Krisztian Vadocz in the 33rd and 38th minute, before Sony Norde got his name on the score sheet in the 69th minute.
Delhi Dynamos came back from behind, opening their scoring in the 51st minute through an impressive Richard Gadze goal, followed by substitute Badara Badji’s goal in the 76th minute and Marcelinho in the 82nd.
Mumbai had dominated for long stretches of the game and played top class football. The Dynamos last goal was somewhat unlucky for Mumbai after it came from a wrong offside call.
The result sees Mumbai remain in 2nd position on the table whilst Dynamos move to 3rd.
