1st match- City Football Club vs Friends United Football Club

Friends United Captain Kamal Singh also showed his class and scored a cracking 4th goal.

2nd match- Delhi Football Club vs Garhwal Football Club

The second game was a cut-to-cut encounter, where both the teams scored two goals in the given 90 minutes. In the first half, Delhi FC managed to score a goal after a rough challenge by Narayan led to a penalty. Sergio Barboza made no mistake and scored from the spot.

Then came the jaw-dropping second half, where Delhi FC continued their attacking gameplay and opened the scoring line in the 58th minute. Samuel Shadap scored an outstanding goal and helped the team take a two-goal lead. But, Garhwal FC decided not to sit back and aimed for a comeback. All thanks to Carlos’ dribbling and Deependra’s sharpshooting, which resulted in Garhwal’s first goal in the 73rd minute. With just 8 minutes left to finish, Carlos intercepted to win a ball from a DFC defender and shot the ball onto the right bottom corner to equalise against Delhi FC. The game ended 2-2!

All the Group A games are done, and Delhi FC have edged over Garhwal by goal difference. These two teams will play the semis on 29th against the top two teams from Group B.
