Can Hyderabad cement their position by defeating Odisha?

Date:

It’s time for a very interesting match as Hyderabad FC take on a struggling Odisha FC. It’s a top vs bottom clash as Hyderabad are 4th while Odisha are 11th.

Hyderabad FC will look to seal all 3 points


HEAD TO HEAD:
In 3 meetings between the two outfits Odisha have won twice and Hyderabad once. In their previous meeting which was on 23rd November, The Nizams defeated Odisha by a solitary goal.

KEY BATTLES:
Aridane Santana vs Steven Taylor:
With the return of key players like Chianese and Sastre there has been no shortage of service for the big Spanish striker. He has also been relieved from a bit of pressure and it will be very difficult for Steven Taylor to cope with Aridane. With the creativity of Sastre and Narzary to feed Aridane, it will be a long day for the veteran defender.

Diego Mauricio vs Odei Onaindia:

Diego Mauricio has been the best player for the Juggernauts this season. He is their top scorer with 6 goals and has been their brightest spark. Hyderabad’s Odei Onaindia will have to be alert to keep the Brazilian at bay.


PREDICTED XIs:

Odisha FC

(4-4-2): Arshdeep Singh (GK), Hendry Antonay, Cole Alexander, Marcelo Pereira, Gaurav Bora, Shubham Sarangi, Vinit Rai, Jerry Mawihmingthanga, Manuel Onwu, Kamalpreet Singh, Steven Taylor (C).
