Delhi Dynamos haven't yet bagged their first home win of the ISL 2016 but there is another chance for them to tick that expectation off on Tuesday. Gianluca Zambrotta's side take on Mumbai City FC, currently second in the competition, at the JLN Stadium in the national capital.
The first home game of the Delhi side this season, which was against NorthEast United FC, witnessed a plethora of fans and it remains to be seen whether during their second home game, the fan support remains the same.
"Of course, when you are playing at home, it's exciting for the player and the coach to have the supporters in the stadium at home, so it's much more exciting," said Zambrotta ahead of the game. "In the first match, the stadium was almost full. Of course, there were mixed supporters but to have home supporters in the stadium makes a difference and gives us an advantage."
Mumbai City FC, unlike Dynamos, have lost one game this season but they are still second owing to having played one game more. The Ranbir Kapoor co-owned side lost to Kerala Blasters in their previous game and missing the likes of Diego Forlan and Sunil Chhetri have really hit them hard.
Bad news is that Forlan is out of Tuesday's match as well. "Well, Forlan is going to be totally fit for our next match. I spoke to him yesterday and he is recovering well and will be ready to play FC Goa in our next game," informed Mumbai City FC coach Alexandre Guimaraes.
"We did not get points in Kerala, so we are hoping for a better game [against Delhi Dynamos] and get points. The league is showing us that every game is going to be tough so I am expecting a tough game on Tuesday as well."
Delhi Dynamos vs Mumbai City FC is scheduled to kick off at 7 pm IST (2.30 pm BST) on October 18.
