Delhi Dynamos are proving to be the main surprise of the Indian Super League 2016 season, going by the intensity shown by head coach Gianluca Zambrotta’s side in their three games thus far. The 0–0 stalemate on the road to Kerala Blasters notwithstanding, they have displayed speed, , passion, skills and some depth in their squad too. All of those attributes will come in handy against a Mumbai City FC side that is enjoying its best start in all ISL history. Delhi themselves will be hoping to match their start to the first ISL two years ago by going a fourth match undefeated, though they would want a win to avoid a repeat of earning just six points from the first four, which eventually cost them a place in the playoffs, finishing behind eventual finalists Atletico de Kolkata and Kerala Blasters by one point.
Meanwhile, the visitors Mumbai City FC have themselves had a mini-streak of their own coming to an end in a narrow 1–0 loss on the road to Kerala Blasters. Leading into that match, they had three wins and a draw, including their last league match away to Atletico de Kolkata in 2015. It was perhaps the first performance of Mumbai’s this season that appeared a little below par. Mumbai have based their tactics this year on a firm defensive line, coupled with quick counterattacks. Their defence will have to be solid if they want to get their first win at the Nehru Stadium, Delhi, in the ISL which they came within seconds of achieving last year, until a dramatic late equaliser by Robin Singh in a 1–1 stalemate.
