Delhi FC score 2-1 upset win over Churchill Brothers!

After two back-to-back defeats, Delhi FC returned to winning ways at the expense of Churchill Brothers in the I-League 2023-24 at the Namdhari Stadium on Friday, December 1.

The come-from-behind 2-1 victory took Delhi FC’s points tally to 10 from seven matches. It elevated Delhi to the sixth position along with Aizawl FC, who have played one match less than Delhi.

It wasn’t a rosy beginning for the winners as they went into arrears in the 24th minute when Churchill Brothers’ Uruguayan star Martin Chaves put the visitors in the lead. Delhi FC, however, did not lose heart and found the equaliser through Sergio Barboza a couple of minutes after the start of the second half.

As if it wasn’t enough, further misery awaited Churchill Brothers during the fag end of the game. Delhi FC clinched the winner and a full three points courtesy of an own goal by Churchill defender Ponif Vaz.

The Red Machines are now stuck at eight points after seven outings.
