Delhi had the chance to again go ahead in the game when, in the 67th minute, Mihelic laid the ball off for Daniel inside the box who only has the goalkeeper to beat but he blazed it wide. However, just three minutes later, Delhi did score. The goal came when Mihelic, from the left, floated a lovely into the far post where Sekar controlled it brilliantly, went to the opposite post and laid it back for Chhangte who was at the right place at the right time and only had to pass the ball onto the net to make the scoreline 2-1 in their favour.

scored his second of the game when Goa got a free kick in Delhi half and the ball was floated into the mix where Edu Bedia
rose up and headed the ball over the goalkeeper to make it 3-2. Although the replay showed Bedia might have been offside but the goal was already given condemning Dynamos to another defeat from a commanding position.
