Brazilian forward Gustavo Marmentini dos Santos’ magical left-foot kept Delhi Dynamos in contention for a semifinal berth as they defeated Pune City FC by a solitary goal in the 13th round encounter of the Indian Super League.

Dos Santos, who scored his fifth goal in the tournament, broke the deadlock in the 88th minute to take Dynamos to 17 points and upto the fourth position in the league table.

A win in their last away encounter against Chennayin FC will be enough to take Dynamos to the knock-out stages while Pune at 16 points and in sixth place will now have to win their last game and look forward towards favourable results. Dos Santos, who probably has been only second to countryman Elano Blumer in terms of exhibiting brilliant individual skills weaved past a couple of defenders before slotting it from a narrow angle beating Pune FC custodian Arindam Bhattacharya. What makes his goal special was the move initiated from the right flank and Dos Santos again did all the spadework with his left-foot.
