10th match of the much awaited Hero Indian Super League is going to be played between Delhi Dynamos and newly introduced ISL team Bengaluru FC. The match will be played on 26th November this year at Sree Kanteerava Stadium, which is located in Bengaluru. The soccer game is scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM according to Indian Standard Time (IST).
The new entrant (Bengaluru FC) performed poorly in recent pre-season matches played against local FCs in India as well as in Spain. Bengaluru’s football club managed to win only one game in its pre-season matches. The team faced defeat in two matches against the Spanish local soccer teams.
Delhi Dynamos too showcased dull performance in the pre-season friendly matches played against the local football clubs in Spain. Out of five practice matches, the team could win only two. Facing defeats in other three matches, Delhi’s FC performed comparatively poorer than Bengaluru FC. The friendly matches were played in the month of September this year.
Delhi Dynamos and Bengaluru FC have never faced each other in any head-to-head match. Bengaluru’s football club is going to make its debut in the Hero ISL this year. Delhi Dynamos has been playing in the league since 2014. Delhi’s team has performed quite well all three seasons of Indian Super League.
In first edition of Hero ISL, Delhi Dynamos FC won four matches. The team earned 18 points from 4 victories. Facing defeats in four matches, the team could not qualify for the semi-final matches. Finishing six matches with equal scores against the opponents, Delhi’s team secured fifth rank in the points table.
Owned by United States-based ship recycling company GMS Inc. and Delhi-based DEN Networks, Delhi’s football team improved its performance gradually in all seasons of Indian Super League. Under coach Harm van Veldhoven, Delhi’s FC failed to achieve good rank in the list of top four best performers in ISL points table.
Exhibiting improvement in the overall performance in ISL 2015, Delhi Dynamos FC registered victories in six matches. Delhi’s FC was defeated by the rival teams in four games. Playing 14 matches in the league stage game, Delhi’s team earned 22 points from 6 victories and attained fourth place in the standings. The team successfully qualified for the semis in 2nd season of ISL.
In third season of Indian Super League, Delhi Dynamos maintained consistency in its performance and defeated the opposite teams in five matches. The team failed to win three matches in the league stage and finished six matches with equal scores. Earning 21 points, Delhi’s football club acquired third place in the point table. The team qualified for the semis but failed to get entry into the final match.
Former Spanish midfielder Miguel Angel Portugal Vicario has been appointed as the new football manager of team Delhi Dynamos FC for the forthcoming season of Hero ISL. Under his guidance and training, Delhi’s football club is expected to perform more qualitatively in the fourth season of Hero Indian Super League.
After analysing the performance of Delhi Dynamos FC and Bengaluru FC, it seems that Delhi’s team is going to be more dominant in the upcoming head-to-head matches of ISL 2017-2018. 10th match of ISL 4 will be the 2nd match for Bengaluru FC in this domestic soccer league of India.
