Can Hyderabad pull off upset to end 2020 with a bang?

Date:

It’s the last ISL match of 2020 as Hyderabad FC take on FC Goa at Tilak Maidan.

Hyderabad were stunned by Kerala Blasters in their previous fixture while Goa come into match on the back of a win against Jamshedpur. Both of the teams would want to finish the year strongly so it promises to be a spicy fixture.



HEAD-TO-HEAD:
Hyderabad have met Goa twice in their history and they have lost in both the fixtures. In thier last meeting Goa thrashed The Nizams 4-1.



KEY BATTLES:

Igor Angulo vs Hyderabad Defence:
It will have to be a brilliant collective defensive display from The Nizams in order to stop Igor Angulo from scoring.
Angulo is the top scorer in the league with 8 goals. Goa haven’t lost a match in which the Spaniard has scored and it is key for The Gaurs that he finds the back of the net.



Aridane Santana vs James Donachie:
Aridane has been instrumental in Hyderabad’s attacking play this season and it will be a tough task for Donachie to stop him. The Australian has the advantage when it comes to aerial prowess due to his height but Aridane is no slouch and Donachie will have to be really alert.



Predicted Lineup:

Hyderabad FC (4-2-3-1): Subrata Pal, Asish Rai, Odei Onaindia, Chinglensana Singh, Akash Mishra, Joao Victor, Lluis Sastre, Liston Colaco, Joel Chianese, Halicharan Narzary, Aridane Santana

FC Goa (4-2-3-1): Mohammad Nawaz, Seriton Fernandes, James Donachie, Ivan Gonzalez, Saviour Gama, Lenny Rodrigues, Edu Bedia, Jorge Ortiz, Brandon Fernandes, Alexander Jesuraj, Igor Angulo
