Both the teams are in poor shape in the inaugural edition of the tourney till date and placed at the bottom. While the home team is placed at the seventh spot with 10 points from nine matches in the eight-team table, the Delhi franchise at the bottom with just seven points in their kitty from same number of matches.
Both the teams are in a must win situation tomorrow as a defeat will push them out of contention for the last-four stage.
NEUFC and Delhi Dynamo are lacking striking power as they scored six and seven goals respectively. The local team in particular, showed their weakness in striking in their previous matches as despite creating numerous openings they failed to shot home.
The Delhi team, despite having World Cupper Alessandro Del Piero in their rank, miserably failed to impress and could win only one match and faced defeat in four outings.
The host team will have its best chance to earn full points tomorrow considering Delhi’s show in previous matches. Both the teams played goalless draw in their last meeting in Delhi.
