DDFC vs FCPC Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Two teams with their tails firmly up will be against each other when Pune City host Delhi Dynamos in the regular season Indian Super League match at Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex, in Balewadi, Mahalunge, Pune, on Sunday evening (IST).
Pune City on the up!
The team has seen two managerial changes this season, and Phil Brown is the 3rd man to pull the string for the club on the football pitch.
Miguel Ángel Portugal was sacked following two defeats in the first three games. It was really harsh on the manager who should have been given more time to implement his philosophy on the team. On the plus side, it tells about the ambitions of the owners who want to make the playoffs, and possibly take the team into Asia.
Pune appointed Pradyum Reddy as their caretaker manager and the team did reasonably well under his tutelage. But too much inconsistency means the Punekars were never really in contention for the postseason.
The former Hull City manager Phil Brown is now at the helm and he has certainly made an impact. In his first four-game, Pune have won twice and drawn the other two. The fixture list was not benign by any means as Pune had to face the likes ATK, Jamshedpur, and NorthEast United in the last 3 games.
Josep Gombau – Lucky or deserving?
With Pune sacking their manager early in the season, they set the ball rolling for the managers, highlighting the fact that managers have the meet the minimum standards.
But the same can’t be said about Delhi Dynamos. In fact, the way the club has gone about its business surprises football fans and pundits alike.
The franchise from the capital went on an 11-game winless streak right from the start of the tournament. The rumors about his possible sacking were mongering but nothing happened and the club decided to stick with him.
Now it looks as if it was a very good decision as Dynamos have won three times in the last five games, including a 3-2 thriller against the mighty Bengaluru FC.
But the club was long out of the playoff picture and that remains the case at the moment. But the club can still finish as high as sixth on the table, which is more than satisfactory considering where Delhi were on the table.

DDFC vs FCPC Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
The current position on the table could be a false indicator about the recent turnaround in each team’s fortune. Both Delhi Dynamos and Pune City are in good form and will head into the game high on confidence. Much will depend on how Josep Gombau sets his team up for an away game considering Pune City are playing as a counter-attacking team under Phil Brown.
Since the Punekars are at home we back them to avoid the defeat.
