Chennaiyin FC will look to inch closer to a play-offs spot with a win over Hyderabad FC in the Indian Super League (ISL) on Monday. Chennaiyin FC are currently placed 7th in the standings while Hyderabad FC are 8th.
Chennaiyin FC started their ISL 2020-21 campaign in a lacklustre fashion. After winning the opening fixture over Jamshedpur FC, the Marina Machans remained winless in their next four fixtures. They then won their second game of the season with a 2-1 scoreline against FC Goa. Csaba Laszlo's side comes into this game on the back of a goalless draw with ATK Mohun Bagan FC.
Hyderabad FC drew thrice and won two games in their initial five fixtures, despite losing out key players due to injuries. The young Hyderabad FC squad seems to have lost steam since then as it has now lost three games in a row.
