Match day 4 of the Hero Indian Super League began on Tuesday with a goalless draw for Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC whilst on Wednesday, Goa FC sunk Mumbai 5-0.
Defending champions Chennaiyin picked up their first point in what was an uninspiring goalless draw at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi.
Both sides created chances but were unable to find the back of the net, with Delhi goalkeeper and Hero of the Match Francisco Dorronsoro pulling off several crucial saves.
Delhi’s head coach Josep Gombau blamed the result on tiredness having played three games in nine days, so was pleased that Dorronsoro had at least helped them salvage a point.
John Gregory Chennaiyin head coach was disappointed with the outcome, believing his side should have won the game comfortably.
Spectators at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda saw FC Goa put 5 goals past a wasteful Mumbai FC on Wednesday.
The game started end-to-end with the first big chance falling to the visitors, but it was the homeside who struck early as Ferran Corominas was brought down by Souvik Chakrabarti in the penalty box. The Spanish forward stepped up, dinked it down the middle, beating Amrinder Singh comfortably in the 6th minute.
The visitors had several chances to equalise after that, winning several free headers inside the homeside box, but were wasteful.
FC Goa didn’t wait long after the second half commenced, doubling their lead in within 10 minutes through Jackichand Singh, who scored from an inch perfect cross from Seriton Fernandes from the byline.
Edu Bedia scored the goal of the match just after the hour mark, after playing a one-two with Coro before finishing it off with the outside of his foot.
Shortly after some substitutions were made and Miguel Palanca Fernandez came on for Coro and scored his 1st of a brace 2 minutes later in the 84th minute, before putting the icing on the cake on the stroke of the 90th minute.
