Having remained unbeaten so far, Delhi Dynamos will be looking to post their first away victory when they lock horns with winless FC Goa in the Indian Super League at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Fatorda on Saturday. With one win and three draws, Delhi Dynamos are placed fourth in the table with six points. They had scored an impressive 4-1 win against Chennaiyin FC at home, but received a set back when they were held to a goalless draw by NorthEast United in their last match in Delhi.
On the other hand, FC Goa have just one point from their four matches and are placed at the bottom of the table. They will have an uphill task at hands tomorrow when they face a team having a strong in defence and good attack. However, Delhi Dynamos coach Harm Van Veldhoven does not want take the home side for granted as he feels that FC Goa are good players who can unsettle their opponents on a given day.
FC Goa have played well in all their four matches so far but were found wanting in front of the goal which saw them loose three matches. Luck has also not been there on FC Goa’s side as the woodwork came into their way in their match against Chennaiyan FC and Atletico de Kolkata, and tomorrow they will be hoping to get their first win in front of the home crowd.
Habas ban reduced
AIFF general secretary Kushal Das Saturday said there was no evidence of Atletico de Kolkata head coach Antonio Lopez Habas attacking FC Goa star player Robert Pires during an ISLmatch in Margao. FC Goa coach Zico alleged that former France international and Arsenal legend Pires was punched by Habas during an altercation when the two teams left for half-time break in the match on October 23, but Das said there was no evidence of that claim.
“There is no evidence of Habas attacking Pires or anything of that sort. So, the AIFF disciplinary committee has now given two-match suspension and he will be kept under probation for the remaining two. If he commits another infringement, then he will have to serve this two-match suspended ban also,” Das told PTI.
