Match 103 of the Indian Super League (ISL) will see Hyderabad FC square off against table toppers ATK Mohun Bagan at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Monday.
Manuel Marquez & co. come into this game on the back of a 10-match unbeaten streak.
A convincing 4-0 win against KBFC in the previous match has boosted Hyderabad FC’s confidence even more. Fran Sandaza scored twice, whereas Aridane Santana and Joao Victor too added their names to the scoresheet.
ATK Mohun Bagan, on the other hand, have won their last five games. A 3-1 win against SC East Bengal in their last match took them to the top of the table.
They also became only the second team to qualify for the playoffs of the ISL 2020-21 season with the win. Roy Krishna, David Williams, and Javier Hernandez scored in the derby win against SC East Bengal.
