Goa Pick Up 3 Points Against Delhi Dynamos

FC Goa staged a second half comeback to pick up all 3 points in their match against Delhi Dynamos at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Goa on Thursday.

The win saw Goa leapfrog to the top of Indian Super League (ISL) table with 13 points from six matches, whilst Delhi languish in ninth spot with 4 points from eight games.

The match proved an end to end affair with an improved and dominant Delhi in the first half, whilst Goa started the second half strongly.

Delhi opened the scoring in the 6th minute through Bikramjiti Singh who pulled the trigger from outside the box and despite the goalkeeper diving, the ball flew into the left bottom corner.

Edu Bedia equalised for Goa in the 54th minute, scoring from a Mandar Desai cut-back inside the box.

Delhi took the lead in the 70th minute after Sekar found himself unmarked and finds Lallianzuala Chhangte with a neat drag-back! The winger made no mistake from close range!

Goa soon equalised after taking advantage of some poor goalkeeping by Dorronsoro as Miguel Fernandes slotted it into the net.

Goa piled further misery on Delhi scoring the winner in the 90th minute as Bedia completed a brace.

After the match Goa Head coach Sergio Lobera shared his thoughts on what proved to be a truly end-to-end encounter.

“Sincerely I felt either of the teams could have got the victory today. I think it was a very open game, both teams were attacking each other as much as possible and trying to score as many goals. I thought it was a great spectacle for the fans. But when the game is so open ended, it is not particularly good for the coaches. But when two teams are going at it, at the decisive moment, one team is better than the other,” he said.
