Six minutes of added time, will we see a winner tonight?

Clever footwork by Triadis
Great footwork by Triadis as he goes past Zuiverloon with a clever trick and then executes a Rabona towards Ogbeche. The forward leaps and connects the ball with his head but it goes straight at Dorronsoro
Another chance for NorthEast but they fail to find the back of the net. Dorronsoro passes the ball to Zuiverloon on the right and he loses the possesion rather cheaply as Ogbeche steals the ball from him. The NorthEast skipper cuts the ball towards Gallego, who twists and turn inside the box before taking a shot at the goalpost. The ball misses the target by inches.
That was inches away from the goalpost. Bartholomew Ogbeche beats the offside trap and gets inside the box. Dorronsoro rushes forward to close the angle and does it right as Ogbeche's attempt goes wide of the target
The referee blows the whistle and the second half is underway.
An excellent save by Francisco Dorronsoro and then the goalpost rescues Delhi from going 1-0 down right at the end of the 1st half. Can the hosts break the deadlock in the next forty-five minutes?
A fine save by Delhi goalkeeper Francisco Dorronsoro as he clears the ball just in time. NorthEast defenders fail to clear an incoming cross from Robert Lalthlamuana and the ball rolls in the center. Panagiotis Triadis tries to take an attempt but alert Dorronsoro slides and kicks the ball away from danger.
A tactical change by NorthEast United right after the half-an-hour mark. Redeem Tlang makes way for Gurwinder Singh
Another chance waster by Delhi
Delhi Dynamos miss another opportunity to open their scoring tonight. NorthEast keeper TP Rehenesh tries to clear the ball but he kicks it straight to Lallianzuala Chhangte. The Mizo forward gets inside the box but fails to beat Rehenesh, who deflects the ball with his hand for a corner.
Vinit Rai should have at least hit the target. Lallianzuala Chhangte delivers a ball on the far post and finds Vinit Rai. The player attempts to hit it the first time but his strike is not even close to the target.
Poor first touch
Marti Crespi lofts the ball towards Daniel Lalhlimpuia inside the box, but he fails to control it as the ball rolls straight to the keeper.
Poor effort by Gianni Zuiverloon
A poor back pass by Gianni Zuiverloon to the goalkeeper, who somehow manages to clear the ball away for a corner. The hosts are in the front foot as they are enjoying most of the ball possession and are also creating chances.
