A match involving Dabang Delhi has been exciting affairs this season. They tank in the first half, then make an inspirational comeback in the second half, and then fall short towards the end of it. This has been the case for most of the season and they would be hoping that this time, facing one of the strongest teams in the league, they can reverse this trend and keep the comeback devoid of a last minute stumble.
