Dynamos eye maiden win as they host Channaiyin FC

An impressive show against table toppers Atletico de Kolkata boosting their morale, Delhi Dynamos take on another high-flying team Channaiyin FC in what promises to be a high-voltage clash in the Indian Super League, here on Saturday.

Dynamos began their ISL campaign with a goalless draw against Pune City FC and then held leaders Atletico de Kolkata 1-1 at the Salt Lake Stadium and they would be surely looking for their first win on Saturday.

The Delhi team showed in Kolkata the potential that they can go a long distance in the tournament by breaking the winning streak of ATK, the most talked about side so far in the league, but they will have to maintain that show against Chennaiyin if they want a positive result. Chennaiyin FC, coached by World Cup winning Italian Marco Materazzi, are at second spot in the points table and have also been an unbeaten side in the tournament. They have beaten FC Goa and Kerala Blasters by identical 2-1 margin and they have one of the best rosters in terms of player quality.

For Delhi Dynamos, much will depend on former Italian World Cup winner Alessandrao Del Peiro’s performance and the 39-year-old Italian legend, who was enjoying every of the adulation showered on him, has not yet shown in the ISL what he is capable of.
