Hyderabad FC lock horns with FC Goa in the third game of Matchday 3 at the Tilak Maidan, as a part of the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL). Hyderabad FC will look to get back to winning ways while the Goa-based club will hope to extend its fine form in the league.
Hyderabad FC have performed quite well in ISL 2020-21, compared to how they fared last season. The club has managed to provide a few positive results, despite being hit by several injury concerns. The Manuel Roca-coached side lost its previous two outings to Mumbai City FC and Kerala Blasters. The Nizams will look to grasp the three points when they meet FC Goa on Wednesday.
FC Goa, on the other hand, are too much reliant on their striker Igor Angulo, who is the leading goal-scorer of ISL 2020/21 so far. The Spanish striker's brace in their previous game against Jamshedpur FC helped them put a full stop to their losing streak. They have had a bittersweet season with three wins, three losses, and two draws. The other players will also have to step up if the club is to make it to the playoffs this season as well.
Hyderabad FC have played high-intensity football and will look to pose a threat to the FC Goa backline, which has kept only one clean sheet this season.
