So, that brings us to the end of another extremely entertaining live coverage of a football match. Tune in next time for more coverages. 
Thank you, Good Bye and Good Night. 
...
It was a seesaw game with it being a very open and end-to-end affair.
Delhi have definitely played better today. They made the changes at the right time and took the game to ATK. Uche continues his rich vein of scoring form. He had a really good game. Arana made is impact felt since coming on and Seityasen was devastating down that right flank. All-in-all a well-rounded performance from Delhi.
ATK, will be licking their wounds after today's performance. Robbie Keane and Teddy Sheringham looking on in disbelief as they let in three goals, after going up 3-1, after Keane's goal near the end of the first quarter of the second half. Even though Delhi played a good game, with the defence ATK have, they should have dealt with it in a better fashion. They seemed to let go after getting the two-goal advantage and showed Delhi the way back into the game. Credit to Delhi that they took the chance.  
...
It's Kalu Uche who has been adjudged the Hero of The Match.
...
And it's all over. It was an extremely entertaining match, filled with 7 goals and it finishes 4-3, in favour of the home team today, Delhi Dynamos FC. 
...
90+2' GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL !!!!
It's Delhi in front again and it's the substitute Mirabaje who is Delhi's hero. It's fast passing from Delhi and they go through ATK like a hot knife through butter. Lumu tears down the left, gives it to Arana at the edge of the box. Arana plays it in for Uche, who shows his strength and smartly lays it off for Mirabaje, with a deft touch. Mirabaje does not disappoint and places it right into that right bottom corner with his left boot, out of reach of the keeper. 
...
90' It will be four added minutes at the end of the original ninety. 
...
89' Ashutosh, of ATK, is booked. It's a clear foul, as he takes one for the team, pulling an opposing player down by the shirt, to stop Delhi from breaking. 
...
88' Robbie Keane on the ball in the Delhi box. He turns past one defender and takes the shot, but Sajid is there to make the block, keeping the score level. 
...
85' Uche makes a beautiful and delicate back-heel laying it off for his teammate Kotal and in comes a cannonball from range. Soram is called into action, and he makes the save.
...
85' SUBSTITUTION(ATK) : Prabir comes on for Keegan.
...
83' It's a booking for Shankar, of ATK, as he clips Mirabaje from behind with his foot. 
...
80' Big chance missed for ATK, as Keane finds Bipin free on the right, in the box. But, his shot is straight at Xabi who makes the save and the ball is out for a ATK corner.
...
79' SUBSTITUTION(ATK) : Bipin comes on for Jayesh.
...
78' Now, it's Mirabaje at the other end, with a shot from range. Soram saves it. The rebound is put back in by Seityasen. But ATK finally clear the ball. 
...
77' It's an effort from quite far out , from the clearly frustrated Mbatha and it's way wide. 
...
71' It's 3-3. What a match this is turning out to be!!
It's Seityasen this time. It's simple one-touch passing from Delhi, as Arana plays it through to Chhangte right at the left edge of the box, who puts it in the centre, right in the path of the oncoming Seityasen, who makes no mistake and puts it in past the helpless Soram Poirei. 
...
69' GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLL  !!
Delhi are back in it as Uche scores again. Seityasen gets the ball down the right and puts it in for Uche who calmly slots it home. ATK might argue that Uche was off-side, but the goal stands.
...
66' Arana  skips past three defenders and takes the shot, but the goalkeeper holds on to the shot. 
...
65' SUBSTITUTION (Delhi Dynamos FC) : Paulo goes off for Mirabaje.
...
63'  SUBSTITUTION (Delhi Dynamos FC) : Arana comes on for Ralte 
...
62' ATK are scrambling at the moment. Anwar slips as he receives the ball and it falls for the pacey Seityasen. He rushes forward with the ball, but takes too long to shoot and ATK get time to get defenders back and make a challenge. 
...
61' SUBSTITUTION(Delhi Dynamos FC) : Cichero is taken out for Sajid.
...
58' It's Robbie Keane again. You can't keep that man quiet when he is in this kind of a mindset. But, the credit should go to the young man Mbatha. The ball is played to him, in his own half. He brings it down and plays it forward past Cichero, skips past Cichero and chases it down. He keeps it in and and runs to goal. He skips the ball over Rowilson and takes the shot. It's straight at Xabi, who to Delhi's dismay, spills it straight into the lap of Robbie Keane waiting right behind the keeper.  
...
54' Robbie Keane seems to have burst into life in this half. The two centre-halves of Delhi being split,as they tried to play out from the back, the ball is looped over everyone to Keane who is in acres on space. He takes one look at Rowilson rushing towards him and then loops it over the head of Xabi who is way off his line. The ball unfortunately bounces back off the bar.  
...
53' It's Keane on the ball again on the left. He puts it in. Mbatha meets it with his head, but it is wide. 
...
51' GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL !!!!!!!
Take a bow ROBBIE KEANE, Take a bow !!
What a goal from the maestro. Calmy floats the ball over the jumping wall, and places it perfectly into the top left corner. Xabi can do nothing about it as the net bulges.  
...
50' Vinit seems to be playing with fire here, as he brings down Robbie from the back, just outside the box. It's now  a big chance for both Robbie Keane and ATK, from this free-kick. 
...
49' Uche almost finds a ball through to release Lumu on the left, but it lands at the feet of ATK.
...
46' It's a corner for ATK early in the second half and it's something worked straight from the training grounds of ATK. The ball is played straight to Robbie Keane, at the edge of the box.  But, he miscues his shot and it goes way wide. Delhi will now be wary of that corner being taken again.
...
So we are back with the second half.
There's the whistle and we are off. 
...
Delhi definitely started well. They were the better team at the start of the match, but ATK have grown into the game. 
One of the main talking points will definitely be that denied penalty claim. Within three minutes of that, Delhi scored, to take the lead. They have had more chances, but their final ball to Uche has to be better, to give a chance to really attack the ball. 
ATK, it seems, have pinned their hopes on the pace of the 20 year-old Mbatha. Most of their attacks are coming down the right through Mbatha. There have been almost no attacks down the left with Rane. But, Mbatha is really starting to cause serious problems to Delhi with his lightning-pace and will become a big factor, as fatigue builds up in the players.  
...
It finishes 1-1, at the end of the first half. 
...
45+1' Mbatha's pace is really starting to have it's effects on the Delhi defence, with them struggling to keep up. 
...
There will be two minutes of added time. 
...
45' Rane puts Keane through again with a beautiful back flick and Xabi comes out to meet it. The ball goes of the foot of the sliding defender, chased by Keane. Keane gives it to Mbatha in the middle, who lays it off, but the shot is straight to the Keeper.  
...
43' It's ATK on the counter. The ball is played out to Mbatha who brushes past the defender and puts a ball through getting Keane one-on-one with the keeper. Keane does not realise how much time he actually has and puts his shot wide with his left boot. 
...
42' Delhi on the attack again. Seityasen finds the ball played into his path, as he blazes down the right flank.  He runs down to the box and puts the cross in, but ATK deal with it.  
...
41' The game has opened up nicely and it's end-to-end stuff right now. 
...
Mbatha has been awarded the goal.
...
GOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL !!!!!
ATK equalise. It's Mbatha on the ball again. A deflected ball falls into his path, just inside the box. He takes two steps towards goal and puts a ball in trying to find Robbie Keane. Unfortunately for Delhi, the ball deflects off Cichero and floats into the goal. Xabi gets his fists to it, but he is not strong enough to keep it out on this occasion.
