Last season, Delhi Dynamos attempted to create success with a passing style of football under then head coach Miguel Angel Portugal. It conjured 8,703 passes in 18 matches (the third highest among all clubs), 10,900 touches (the fourth highest), 295 crosses (the highest) for 27 goals (the fifth highest), yet finished eighth due to an ineffective defensive performance, conceding 37 goals.

While the new head coach — former Barcelona B manager Josep Gombau — advocates a similar approach for the new season, he is understandably keen on a fresh-looking team with many new personnel to “stop the gaps” and “make sure there is equal balance on all parts of the field when we step out.”
