The first half featured a number of chances for both sides but both goalkeepers held their ground and it was goalless at half time. Chhangte sent a measured cross into the Pune box from the left after a neat passing move with Sena Ralte. Paulinho Dias and Dynamos skipper Kalu Uche went for the ball and it was the former that met it. He made no mistake and the ball was nestled in the back of the net.

The Dynamos had a chance to double the lead just eight minutes later. A Pune defensive error allowed Chhangte to be one on one with the keeper but he ended up lobbing it past him and failed to hit the target. It was after this that Delhi thumped in two goals to put the game practically out of Pune’s reach.

Alfaro went clear of Delhi’s defence and had only the goalkeeper to beat nine minutes later but Albino Gomes was quick off his line to thwart the danger. Pune continued to see more of the ball as the half progressed but couldn’t create any further clear-cut goal-scoring opportunities before the half-time whistle.

Mirabaje then had another opportunity to get his name on the scoresheet after a delightful cross from the right found him unmarked in the box. The Uruguayan midfielder kept his header on target, but his effort went straight into Gomes’ grateful arms.

But Pune’s new striker Emiliano Alfaro scored his debut goal to pull one back for the hosts almost immediately after Delhi’s third goal went in. But Pune’s second goal came only in the last minute of the match, by which time it was too little too late. Marcos Tebar scored the second connecting a low cross from the right by Marcelinho Delhi’s highest scorer last season. He could not do much against his former team. Dynamos have now beaten Pune four times in seven meetings. The rest have featured two draws and one win for Pune.
