NorthEast United FC pumped in two quick first half goals in the space of five minutes to beat Delhi Dynamos 2-0 and notch up its first win of the season in the ongoing Indian Super League yesterday.
Brazilians Marcio Junior and Danilo Lopes Cezario scored in the 17th and 22nd minutes to give NorthEast its first full three points after a draw and a loss in its first two matches of the season. The side now has four points from three matches.
Dynamos had much better possession but failed to convert the few chances that came its way in the side’s first home game of the season that was sparsely attended.
This was Dynamos’ second consecutive loss after its 1-4 thrashing by Bengaluru FC on November 26. It now has just three points from three matches.
NorthEast, on the other hand, was able to convert the few chances it had while it took advantage of a goalkeeping howler by Albino Gomes to score the second goal.
It had drawn its first match against Jamshedpur FC at home before losing to Chennaiyin FC in its second match.
