Delhi Dynamos scored twice in the second half to notch up a comfortable 2-0 win over FC Goa in an entertaining match of the Indian Super League (ISL) at the Nehru stadium in Margao on 30 October.

After a barren first-half, Delhi Dynamos FC scored through substitute Marcelo Leite Pereira (72nd) and Richard Gadze (76th) to take their tally to ten points from seven matches, the same as NorthEast United but are placed third on account of better goal difference.

FC Goa, who suffered their fifth defeat, are lying at the bottom of the table with four points from seven matches.

Desperately looking for their first home win, FC Goa coach made five changes which proved effective as they kept on the pressure on the visitors in the first half and created ample scoring chances but could not get the break through.

The visitors started positively and held the early ball possession but the home team quickly settled down to a rythmn and had the first chance to surge ahead in the 4th minute.

Julio Cesar from the middle relayed the ball to Joffre who quickly released it to Rafael Coelho. The Brazilian Syrian striker chipped the ball into the goal but it was cleared by defender Anas Edathodika.

The home team piled on the pressure and Julio had a chance to score but his left footer went off the mark.
