Delhi Dynamos, Atletico de Kolkata share the points after playing out an exciting 2-2 draw at the JLN Stadium in New Delhi on Sunday. Table-toppers Delhi, trailing 0-1 at the half-way mark, scored two goals in the second, and conceded one, to manage a 2-2 draw. Delhi were reduced to 10 before half-time, but did well to earn the draw. Kolkata on the other hand were far more aggressive and would be disappointed to miss out on what were three crucial points.

FULL TIME! It remains 2-2 and that’s end of an exciting match in New Delhi. Plenty of drama unfolded in the second half as Delhi scored two goals, and conceded one, to manage a draw

Four minutes of added time, and it promises to be an exciting duration. We have seen funny things happen in the ISL during added time period, and today could be another day of the same

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:46 pm

Last five minutes on the clock and both teams are charging forward in search of the winning goal. Crucial three points at state for both Delhi and Kolkata

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:36 pm

74′: Delhi equalise, and in no time. Malouda with some brilliance in the box and the right-footer beats the goalie for the second goal for Delhi. 2-2 it is now. All to play for in the last 15 minutes now

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:34 pm

71′: Quality curling strike by Javi Lara finds the right corner and puts Atletico de Kolkata in the lead. This is his third goal of the season, and one of the best. Quality football on exhibition

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:26 pm

63′: Minutes after saving the penalty, Majumder has no clue about that one. Milan fires, yes fires, one to equalise for Delhi. Sensational strike, one of the finest goals this season

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:23 pm

61′: Malouda low left strike is cut away by Kolkata goalie Majumder. Kolkata maintain their 1-0 lead at the JLN

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:22 pm

Marcelo is taken down in the box, and is awarded a penalty. Delhi Dynamos get a golden opportunity to equalise

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:20 pm

David Addy goes for glory for some distance and it sails over the target. Over-ambitious strike poses no danger to the the Atletico defence

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:18 pm

We are done with the first ten minutes of the second half and the scoreline remains 1-0, in Atletico de Kolkata’s favour

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20168:08 pm

The second half gets underway and the hosts will be under a lot of pressure to turn the tables in the ISL 2016 contest. Delhi make a change as Niasse, not hundred percent, makes way for David Addy

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:52 pm

No change to the scoreline after three minutes of added time. Kolkata go into the break leading Delhi 1-0, and the hosts, down to 10, will need to play out of their skins to settle scores with the Kolkata unit

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:45 pm

Second booking for Badji. This time for a hand-ball. He is sent off, and Delhi now have a lot of work to do in the remaining period of play. It’s still 1-0 in Kolkata’s favour

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:34 pm

33′: Can’t get closer than this. That attempt from Postiga almost went in. Kolkata very much in charge with a 64-36 attack index. The hosts feel the heat in Delhi winter

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:24 pm

23′: Marcelo delivers a flat corner, and Niasse, making good run towards goal heads it down but it bounces over. Could have been dangerous this. Nearly an equaliser for the hosts

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:18 pm

17′: Delhi err in defence as the slide fails to cut the ball away and Hume makes most of that. One-on-one with the goalie, he produces a clinical finish to fire his 20th goal of the ISL. Kolkata 1-0 ahead inside the first twenty minutes of the match

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:16 pm

14′: Malouda misses to put foot on ball for the first clearance, manages a decent lob forward on second attempt. Marcelo, on the run, is on side but his attempt to to collect to the ball neatly fails and it travels to Kolkata goalie who makes no mistake on that occasion

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:13 pm

11′: Hume feeds one into the area from the right wing, but it more legs than he would have wanted. The ball sails over a Jumping Postiga and is safely dealt with by the Delhi defence. It remains 0-0 in the opening half of the contest

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:07 pm

Kolkata make a positive start to the contest as they press forward in search of the first goal. Some nice moves going the visitors’ way as the hosts feel the heat, in the first ten minutes of the match

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:03 pm

Some fiery tackles by both teams in as early as the third minute of the game. Both sides step on the accelerator early in the contest

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:02 pm

And, there’s an early injury scare. Kolkata’s Hume is down, in some discomfort. Doesn’t take long before getting back up on his feet, and play resumes at the JLN Stadium

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20167:01 pm

Delhi Dynamos get the coin toss in their favour and they will move from left to right in the opening half of the contest

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20166:59 pm

We are done with the national anthem, and the official team photograph. On a winter evening in New Delhi, the crowd’s in for a quality time as two good sides battle it out for three points. While Delhi are in a safe zone, Kolkata need additional points to secure a top-four finish in the group stages of the tournament

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20166:57 pm

Delhi have a good chance to end the group stage at top of the table but they would be pushed by teams vying for the top-four spots

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20166:55 pm

The two teams make the long walk from the dressing room to the centre of the pitch. We are moments away from the national anthem, and the toss after that. Spectators with their phones out. They don’t want to miss the shot of their star player in action

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20166:33 pm

The two line-ups are out. Here’s a look at the two teams

Delhi Dynamos FC lineup

Antonio Doblas Santana(GK), Ibrahima Niasse, Souvik Chakraborty, Lalchhawnkima, Anas Edathodika, Emerson Gomes de Moura, Milan Singh, Florent Malouda(C), Kean Lewis, Marcelo Leite Pereira, Badara Badji

Sahil Malhotra November 13, 20166:33 pm

Mouth-watering clash on the cards as table-toppers Delhi Dynamos take on Atletico de Kolkata on Sunday. While Delhi are unbeaten in their last four games, Kolkata have had a hot and cold run as they have won two and lost two of their last four matches. Crucial three points at stake as two quality teams go up against each other
