DELHI fail to maintain their winning streak as the FC GOA register their first win in the inaugural ISL. Delhi were on the move from the time the game started and they had the first goal of the match scored by JUNKER. But Goa had many chances which they failed to capitalise on in the first half.
Goa replied in an emphatic fashion by stunning the favourites with a narrow goal difference of (2-1). Goa were always on the charge but they needed one right pass to convert into a Goal. Goa always had the momentum but it was loss of ball at crucial moments. Goa had all the players on forward who comprised of Indians like Narayan Das and many others.
