...
Thank You for tuning in for this coverage. It's a wrap for today. See you again next game.
Good Bye and Good Night.
...
It was a good fight, with Delhi going front off the back of a penalty, converted calmly by Uche. Chennai came back strong in the second half, creating loads of chances and Delhi should be really thankful for the performance of their Keeper, Xabi. 
Credit to the custodian, who had a really good game, making a couple of extremely important stops. Having said that, Chennai needed to attack the free balls more and finished their chances better. Especially, the chance that fell to Gavilan, you would not be wrong to expect a player, of his quality, put it past any Keeper. 
...
And it's all over. The referee has blown the final whistle, and it ends at a goal a piece, for the two teams.
...
90+5' Delhi get a corner which is floated in. It bounces off two heads and lands beautifully for Arana, whose volley is blocked. There is another shot that comes in towards goal from the rebound but it's wide of the left post.
...
90+3' Arana makes a darting run straight down the middle of the Chennai half and quickly gets his shot off. It's a decent effort, blocked by the stand-in captain Mailson.
...
90' The fourth official has put up five minutes on the board. 
...
89' Chennai have been caught in possession and now Delhi can counter. 
...
85' Jayananda seems like he needs some attention. He seems to be coming down with cramps.
...
81' GOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL 
And Chennai finally have their goal. It's another free-kick for them in the Delhi half. Mihelic floats it in and Mailson makes sure he meets it with his head, before the fists of the onrushing Xabi.  Mailson attacked the ball, something that has been lacking from the Chennai players.
...
81' SUBSTITUTION(Delhi Dynamos) : Uche goes off for Arana
...
80' Seityasen puts a ball in from the left and this time it's Chhangte with a low header from in the box. The ball goes out wide of the right post.
...
79' SUBSTITUTION(Chennaiyin FC.) :
it's a double change , as Nelson goes off for Nworuh
and Francis goes off for Rafi.
...
77' SUBSTITUTION(Delhi Dynamos) : Vinit comes off for Seityasen
...
75' Vinit is down holding the back of his foot. He really looks injured.
...
73' Delhi have a chance as few players burst forward and the ball falls to Dias who gets the shot off, but it is straight at the keeper.  
...
71' Delhi get a scare, as Rowilson heads the ball back towards his goalie very poorly and it falls right in front of the advancing Jeje. Xabi rushes out to put it away from him. The ball goes out left, followed by Raphael, but he is closed down by two defenders.
...
69' SUBSTITUTION(Delhi Dynamos FC.) : Rowilson comes on to replace Sajid, who is taken off on a stretcher, after going down due to a challenge.

...
67' Chhangte gets a shot in of his own, but is not too successful himself.  
...
66' It's a penalty shout from Chennai as Francis is brought down in the Delhi penalty box, by Timothy. It did not look like a bad challenge and the referee tells them to get on with the game.
...
65' Raphael gets the ball near the edge of the box, and gets a shot off, but to no effect.
...
63' Chennai get a free-kick. Mihelic floats it in for Ganesh at the right post, who reaches it, but is offside. 
...
62' SUBSTITUTION(Chennaiyin FC.) : 
Gavilan goes off for Mihelic
...
59' GOAALLLLL 
It's a goal for the Delhi Dynamos, as Uche calmy finishes it off with a stutter in the runup. The stutter makes the keeper go to his left and Uche noticing that calmy puts it far to the Goalie's right. 
...
59' PENALTY : It's an arguably soft penalty against Chennai. Raphael collides into Mirabaje, and the referee points to the spot. 
...
57' Gavilan taken off the ball by Vinit in the middle of the pitch and Delhi can counter. They get a corner.
...
54' Chennai are looking increasingly dangerous, as they come away with the ball again. The ball is threaded to the left. As the cross comes in from the left, it finds a free Gavilan in the box, who shoots. Xabi pulls off a tremendous reflex save, as the score still remains nil-nil. 
...
50' There's a darting run down the right by Romeo, which Dias spots and threads a ball straight through the two centre-halves. Romeo cuts it back, but Karanjit pounces on it, denying Chhangte a chance at it.
...
48' Chennai keeping the ball more early in this half. They will score soon if they can keep this up.
...
45' And we're back at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi for the second half and right at the start, there's a glaring mistake by the Delhi keeper, Xabi. He clears the ball straight to a Chennai player, who puts it straight back towards the box. There's a deflection off a Delhi player and it falls to Raphael, who puts it over the bar. A good early chance missed by Chennaiyin.
...
Chhangte was in the heart of almost every Delhi attack, making numerous runs down the left. The Delhi Dynamos, till now, have made the bulk of the attacking.
Chennaiyin FC. have been forced to play a passing game by Delhi, and though they have created a few good chances, they have failed to convert them, the best being the chance that fell to Nelson near the end of the half. 
All in all, an enjoyable second half can be expected from the two teams.
...
And with that whistle, we come to the end of a more or less entertaining first half. 

...
45' Chennai get their best chance in this half, with Nelson beating the off-side trap in the box, as Gavilan displays beautiful vision and puts the pass through, to get Nelson one-on-one with the keeper. Nelson takes a good first touch, first his shot sails just wide.
...
43' That's another ball sent up far left looking for Chhangte again. Karanjit is quick off his blocks to kick it away. The ball comes back with Mirabaje and now is put forward for Chhangte to chase, but Karanjit can see it out.
...
40' Delhi are putting the ball out wide to Chhangte any chance they get and now Chennai seem to have become aware of it, Keenan dispossesses Chhangte.
...
We are still goalless in this match with around eight minutes to go till stoppage time.
...
36' Ganesh makes a needless challenge on Vinit in the Delhi half. He must get his aggression in check if he does not want to get booked.
...
35' Chennai have a corner. The ball is swept in, but the header isn't good and Delhi can come out with the ball.
...
33' Chennai finally have a break. Nelson takes the ball out left and looks up before putting it right on the edge of the box, for the onrushing Gavilan. He, however, puts the ball way over the bar.
...
32' Chennai are not being able to link-up properly. They making several mistakes and Delhi are making good use of those mistakes.

...
30' Mirabaje puts a floating ball forward searching for the head of Uche. Karanjit, the goalie for Chennai, is however well aware of the situation and snuffs it out early.
