I am going to stick my neck out and say that this was the best game of the season far. End-to-end attacks and lots of action. You money and/or time’s worth. Sad that it had to end in a draw but on the balance of play it is a fair result. From Delhi its goodnight.

90+6′ There goes the whistle as the game ends in stalemate

Alfaro equalizer for NEUFC.

90+5′ Alfaro’s shot from inside the box but the whistle had gone for handball.

90+4′ Attempted through ball to Alfaro but Doblas comes and kicks it long.

90+2′ Substitution Delhi Gadze Off Badji On.

90+1′ Marcelinho with a ball towards Gadze cleared only to Malouda whose snapshot is wide.

90′ To be honest the late dash I was expecting from the two teams hasn’t come yet. We go into five minutes of added time.

89′ Malouda with a poor free-kick that doesn’t get past the first wall of men. Expected better there.

88′ Foul on Lewis. Free-kick left of centre.

84′ For those of you wondering Robert Cullen is the Irish-Japanese forward who was signed as a replacement for the injured Fabio Neves.

83′ Substitution for NorthEast United: Velez Off Cullen On.

82′ Another coming together betwen Gadzi and Paul. Those two have been at each all game.

77′ Substitution for NorthEast Romaric Off Wellington Priori on.

76′ Out of nowhere Marcelinho blasts one from distance and that one had Subrata scrambling.

75′ This game is just simmering as we enter the last 15. There is one last thrust in each team for sure. We need a winner.

72′ I am still trying to figure out what exactly the ‘Blue Army’ guys are supposed to do? If any of you have a clue please tweet us @KhelNow or comment below .

71′ Marcelinho slips in a lovely cross but Gustavo nips in ahead of Gadzi to clear.

70′ What on earth are the keepers doing tonight. Doblas comes way out of his area and takes a touch instead of putting hjis foot through the ball. Alfaro knicks it off him but than plays it into touch.

68′ The substitute Malouda with a tantalizing balling across the box but noone is making the run into the box.

66′ Substitution for Delhi : Marquee Malouda comes on for Tebar .

55′ Meanwhile, Yusa with another corner that is easily cleared.

54′ Massive credit to Alfaro who didn’t give up the lost cause and caught the defender napping to create the chance.


Velez dispossesses the Delhi defender and sets up Alfaro who eventually blast it in. Out of nowhere this game is level.

48′ Ball in the box by Romaric is well cleared. Delhi counter and with Gadze in space Subrata pulls off a brilliant save.

46′ Second half is underway, no changes from both the sides .

Fantastic game. Both sides in chances. But, NorthEast are left to rue all those opportunities they missed after Delhi hit them with a sucker punch following an error by Paul. But, the visitors aren’t out of this. More of the same in the second half please. See you in a bit.
