ISL 2016: 5 things that Delhi Dynamos need to do to reach the finals
It is a precarious situation for Delhi Dynamos as they host Kerala Blasters FC in the second leg of their semi-final tie. A solitary goal by Kerala striker Kervens Belfort in the first leg separates the sides. With no suspensions, the match should be an even affair.
But, in their away leg, Delhi seemed a distant shadow of their imperious self. They were mostly chasing shadows as Kerala ran riot on their home ground.
We take a look at what the team from the capital need to work on in order to make it through to the finals.
#5 Sort out their right back position
Every time Belfort received the ball on the left wing, it struck panic in the Dynamos’ right back. Sana Singh was clearly not adept enough to mark the Haitian. The bags of trickery from the striker deceived the defender on numerous occasions.
Be it pace, strength or guile - Belfort trumped Sana in every department. A deep scar has been exposed in the Delhi right back position. Gianluca Zambrotta needs to rejig his team and sort out the issue urgently. Maybe shuffling Souvik Chakrabarty in to the right back slot and letting Kim Kima play in the more natural left half would do the job. But this chink remains a major flaw in the Delhi Dynamos armour.
