Hyderabad FC are fifth in the ISL standings and need three points to move up into the top-four. Chennaiyin FC occupy the 6th place and have been an inconsistent team throughout the season.
Here are the top 3 players you could pick as the captain or vice-captain of your Dream11 Fantasy team for the ISL game between Hyderabad FC and Chennaiyin FC:
#3 Joel Chianese
Joel Chianese has added pace and diversity to Hyderabad FC's attacking gameplay after returning from injury. The Australian, who is naturally a winger-cum-forward, has also been used as an attacking midfielder.
Chianese has played 7 ISL games so far and has scored twice, with an assist to his name. He can drop down to the midfield, stay up front, and move to the right-wing, thus stretching the opposition defense.
#2 Esmael Goncalves
Esmael Goncalves has played 10 ISL matches for Chennaiyin FC. He has managed to score 4 goals and has an assist to his name. Goncalves was out of action for a few matches this ISL season due to lack of match fitness.
The Bissau-Guinean has bolstered the Chennaiyin FC midfield. The former champions have fluffed a lot of their scoring opportunities and will need Goncalves to find the net.
#1 Aridane Santana
Hyderabad FC's Aridane Santana has a frightening presence upfront for any opposition defense. The Spaniard is a typical goal poacher and has fantastic finishing abilities. He has scored 7 goals and made an assist for Hyderabad FC in just 13 ISL matches. Santana is also the leading goal-scorer for his side.
He has a sturdy physique which helps him to muscle past his markers inside the opposition box while dribbling on the field. Santana can also challenge for the aerial balls from set-pieces, and cross from the wings.
Santana's positioning awareness allows wingers like Liston Colaco and Halicharan Narzary to enter the box and destabilise the opposition defense.
