Delhi Dynamos face a Mumbai City FC side, which would be looking for an away win. In a bottom of the Super League clash, both teams face a must win encounter to elate their chances of progression. Delhi’s coach Harm van Veldhoven said that the change in tactics worked for them and the Dutch is likely to stick to his winning formula.
“Every game is different. It is important to make combinations and to score goals. We had tried out some new things with Gustavo dos Santos and Francis Fernandes, which worked well when we were away, but we have to see if it can work in every game,” he said.
“However, we cannot play with the same players all the time. We also have to analyse the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses and choose the team accordingly for that particular game. Maybe we play in the same organisation but with different players,” he contradicted
“We want to win games and not just exhibit ball circulation. Moreover, when you are one player down it is harder to make changes. Keeping this in mind we did well by holding the game for 45 minutes with 10 players on the field.”
Italian legend Alessandro del Piero was not involved in Delhi’s last match against NorthEast United. Harm van Veldhoven revealed that the off-color Italian could start this time around, he said ” “I don’t like to talk about any one player in the team. Everyone is working hard and we will try to use everybody as much as possible. Certain formations are suitable more for one player than the other. Del Piero is working hard and is important to us. We might use him for the next four games. It depends on the situation which is in front of us.”
Meanwhile Peter Reid of Mumbai City FC expressed his thoughts on the highly volatile league, ““If you look at the league table, you will realise that the league is very tight except for Chennai who have some room at the top. Anyone can beat anyone. We are expecting a hard but exciting game tomorrow,”
If Delhi Dynamos win this fixture they would amount to thirteen points, but if they loose than their chances of qualification might take dark ways.
