ISL semi-finalists Hyderabad FC (HFC) will face I-League side Aizawl FC (AFC) in their opening encounter of the Super Cup 2023 at the Payyanad Stadium in Manjeri on Sunday, April 9, 2023.
The two teams make up Group B alongside Odisha FC and East Bengal FC. Both will be hoping to start their campaigns with a win, with just one team advancing to the next stage of the tournament.
Aizawl FC beat TRAU FC in the qualifier earlier this week to reach the main group stage. The team had a pretty decent I-League campaign where they finished seventh among the 12 teams but will need to be on top of their game if they are to come strong against a formidable Hyderabad side.
Hyderabad FC, meanwhile, have named a full squad and will look to make a mark in their first-ever appearance in the Hero Super Cup. The team has firepower in its ranks and will look to get its hands on the cup after narrowly missing out on defending its title in the ISL earlier this season.
