Delhi Dynamos vs Mumbai City FC (ISL 2016)
Date: 18 October 2016.
Venue: Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium
Time: 7.00pm IST
Broadcasters: Star Sports (English) Star Gold (Hindi)
Delhi vs Mumbai Match Preview
Delhi Dynamos is 4th in the ISL points table with 5 points and only 3 Matches played so far. However, Gianluca Zambrotta’s men have performed exceptionally well in all their three matches so far. All of those attributes will come in handy against a Mumbai City FC side that is enjoying its best start in all ISL seasons.
Delhi themselves will be looking to match their start to the first ISL two years ago by going a fourth match unbeaten, though they would want a win to avoid a repeat of earning just six points from the first four, which eventually cost them a place in the playoffs, finishing behind eventual finalists Atletico de Kolkata and Kerala Blasters by one point.
The 2nd positioned Mumbai City FC looks solid in defence. Their major strength is the counterattacking moments with the likes of pacey players like Sony Norde and Leo Costa. Mumbai City’s star performer in the defensive region has been outplayed by Krisztian Vadocz, the central midfielder who was player of the match when they beat NorthEast 1-0 in their first home match at the Mumbai Football Arena in Andheri.
Vadocz spent a brief spell at FC Pune City in 2014 and brings that experience in shoring up the midfield, but he has shown an ability to contribute to attack as well. Forlan can miss a couple of more matches.

Delhi Dynamos vs Mumbai City FC Predictions
The advantage Delhi Dynamos carry is that they have one match less played than the other ISL teams in the Competition currently.

Sony Norde and Defederico to score for Mumbai City FC whereas Florent Malouda to score the only Delhi Dynamo goal.
