Delhi Dynamos

NorthEast United 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 Indian Super League football here on Saturday.

Brazilians Marcio Junior and Danilo Lopes Cezario scored in the 17th and 22nd minutes to give NorthEast full three points after a draw and a loss in its first two matches of the season. It now has four points from three matches.

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 United’s Brazilian striker Lopes Cezario had a fine effort at the Dynamos goal in the 10th minute as he pounced on a poor backpass by right back Pritam Kotal to his goalkeeper but the Brazillian striker could not keep his shot down as it flew over the crossbar.

But NorthEast did not have to wait for long in taking the lead with another Brazilian Marcio Junior bulging the Dynamos net in the 17th minute to the dismay of the sparse crowd at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

Five minutes later, NorthEast doubled the lead with Cezario taking advantage of a goalkeeping howler. Dynamos kepeer Gomes goofed up in clearing the back-pass from Pratik Chowdhury. Gomes kicked into Danilo’s path and the Brazilian easily slotted the ball into the net.
