The DDFC vs FCPC match preview –
The team from the capital city in Delhi Dynamos will be playing their first game of the new season of Indian Super League against last year’s semi-finalist, FC Pune City on Wednesday.
Delhi Dynamos came alive at the latter end of the season. It was apparent that this team had quality, and lacked consistency. But, they have tried to solve that problem by bringing in a new manager as well as some players who fit his ideologies. They have focused directly on the issues they had last season, and look to be in a good shape this time out.
Meanwhile, FC Pune City already had an excellent base to build on from last season. They were one of the semi-finalists, and even though they didn’t get as far as the team would’ve liked, being the fourth best team is still an achievement. FC Pune City got the likes of Ian Hume and Martin Diaz this season. Both of them are experienced players who will help the young players maintain their composure when the going gets tough.

Gambling India Info Match Prediction Delhi Dynamos vs FC Pune City –
This is going to be an intense affair, but we back Delhi Dynamos to either get the win or this game ending up being a scored draw.
Delhi Dynamos- The Hosts endured a miserable last season as they finished at a disappointing 8th position in a league of 10 teams. However, the Dynamos did create some momentum for themselves in the 2nd phase as they went on a 6 games unbeaten streak which also included a 5-1 thumping of Mumbai City FC. While their first opponent of the 2018-19 season are FC Pune City against whom they tasted defeat only once in the last 8 encounters. So definitely the Dynamos will be looking to extend that streak against Pune in their season opener.
New Coach, New team- Delhi appointed former Spanish Player Joshep Gambau as their new head coach for this season. While the team also drafted in new players, most notably, midfielders Bikramjit Singh, and Mihelic and Spaniards Marcos Tebar and Adria Carmona to secure them the three points. In total, Delhi have added 14 new players to their rosters which include 7 Indian and 7 foreign players (Martin Crespi, Marcos Tebar, Andrija Kaluderovic, Rene Mihelic, Adria Carmona, Francisco Dorronsoro, and Gianni Zuiverloon).
FC Pune City- The visitors will be hoping to go one step further this time around after missing out on the final last season. Pune finished 4th during the league campaign but got humbled by Bengaluru FC 3-1 in the playoffs.
Team- Last season’s head coach Ranko Popovic has left the club and the former Delhi Dynamoes manager Miguel Portugal has been given the task of taking the club forward this season.
While Pune managed to secure the services of two of their star foreign players in Argentine striker Emiliano Alfaro and Brazilian winger Marcelinho wh scored a combined 17 of team’s 31 goals last season. Their summer signing Iain Hume is still recovering from an injury and thus won’t be taking any part in this game. Martin Diaz, Matt Mills and the former ATK player Ashutosh Mehta have been added to bolster the defence. Elsewhere, goalkeeper Vishal Kaith was given a contract extension and is expected to be their first choice throughout this campaign.
