Head coach Kibu Vicuna won his first match of the season when the Kerala Blasters defeated Hyderabad FC. The win over the Nizams came right after their spirited draw with SC East Bengal, courtesy of a late goal by Jeakson Singh.
Abdul Hakku Nediyodath and Jordan Murray were on target against Hyderabad FC as the Blasters clinched three points for the first time. The win also marked their second clean sheet of ISL 2020-21.
With the win against the Nizams, the Blasters will be confident heading into the clash against the Islanders. Vicuna opted for a new-look center-back pairing of Abdul Hakku Nediyodath and Sandeep Singh against Hyderabad FC.
