Indian Super League team Delhi Dynamos kicked-off its pre-season preparations with a 1-0 win over Qatar Stars League side Muaither S.C at the Aspire Academy.
A first half goal from forward Lallianzuala Chhangte handed the Indian Super League outfit their first win of the ongoing pre-season camp.
Head Coach Miguel Angel Portugal handed starts to just three foreigners in the lineup — Paulinho Dias, Matias Mirabaje and Edu Moya. Simranjeet Singh and Romeo Fernandes were handed their first starts.
Delhi Dynamos took the lead in as early as the 15th minute, when Chhangte finished off a well capped move from close range.
Muaither had a chance to sneak a goal right before the half-time whistle but Albino’s smart save kept the scores intact.
The away side continued to build on the pressure and had a chance to extend its lead, but Simranjeet’s effort from close range landed straight into the hands of the Muaither’s custodian.
Delhi held on to the lead despite pressure in the dying minutes by the QSL side, to register a win.
