David Platt made 6 changes from their winning combination from last match and was made to pay heavily for it,as FC Pune City faced their first defeat of the season against Delhi Dynamos.While Platt was seen making a blunder with team selection his counterpart Roberto Carlos showed great managerial tactics to win their 2nd match in a row, using Gustavo dos Santos very effectively.

The marquee duo of Delhi,Florent Malouda and John Arne Riise, both continued their impressive stint and were the main pillars of Delhi's game,controlling the whole team like a bandmaster.Malouda's performance earned him the title of Hero Of The Match.The other thing that went Delhi's way was the performance of their Indian players, with the likes of Robin Singh,Souvik Chakraborty and Anas Edathodika playing at par with their foreign team-mates. Robin Singh had a memorable ISL debut ,finding the net with a sublime header from a corner kick by Malouda on 24th minute of the game.Delhi scored again through Gadze ,with the Ghanaian getting his second goal of the season, during the additional time of the match. Pune got one back immediately after that, when Uche scored from a Lyngdoh cross,but till then there was no time left for FC Pune City to make a comeback.Delhi Dynamos moved to 3rd position after this match while FC Pune City remained in the 2nd position despite the loss , but Platt has to stick to a fixed combination for them to remain in that position in the future.
