6:30 PM IST: Hello and welcome to live coverage of the ISL match between Bengaluru FC and Delhi Dynamos FC!

Bengaluru, who made their ISL debut this season and have won the I-League twice, registered an easy 2-0 win over Mumbai City FC in their opening game thanks to goals from Edu Garcia and skipper Sunil Chhetri.

Delhi Dynamos, who have a new-look side and are being led by their fourth new coach in Miguel Angel Portugal, also began the season with a close 3-2 win over Pune City FC.

Given the frequency of goalless draws that the league has seen so far, both these teams would be keen to register their second straight win in order to pull away from the rest of the pack.

Bengaluru FC are well-settled side compared to other ISL outfits. That and the fact that they’re playing at home makes them favourites going into the game.

However, Delhi have looked a decent side under their new coach and it would be unwise to count them before the game begins.
