The third edition of the Indian Super League is up and running with the teams picking up the pace from the get-go. North East United are leading the pack with two wins out of three but the John Abraham co-owned side faltered against Mumbai City in their third game. This has given the Blues of Mumbai the joint top spot followed by Delhi Dynamos. FC Goa are at the bottom of the table after Zico’s side lost both of their games.

An action packed first week just went by with some close fought football games that were decided by a single goal on a number of occasions. FC Pune City against Goa was decided by a last-gasp winner and the league is getting more and more enthralling with each passing game.

On that note, let's take a look at the team of the week from the opening games that went by :

Goalkeeper: Roberto Valpato

The Brazilian has been the pick of the lot with some important saves

The Brazilian was signed as a deputy to Amarinder Singh but has cemented his place in Singh's absence and has two clean sheets in two games. The Blues had a dream first week, winning both of their games 1-0. Valpato was brilliant against FC Pune City, making some fantastic saves and he also had a stellar game against North East.
