Hyderabad FC (HFC) will lock horns with Kerala Blasters FC (KBFC) in the Indian Super League (ISL) final at the Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda on Sunday.

Having missed out on the ISL Shield, the Nizams will be determined to add a piece of silverware to their collection after making it this far for the first time in their history.

They put up an amazing defensive performance against ATK Mohun Bagan in the second leg of their semi-final to defend a 3-1 lead from the first leg. Although the Mariners broke the deadlock with a Roy Krishna goal in the second half, it wasn't enough to stop HFC from securing a final berth.

The Tuskers, meanwhile, are also highly motivated after making it to this stage of the competition after six long years of waiting. Ivan Vukomanovic's men ousted ISL Shield winners Jamshedpur FC with a 2-1 aggregate score. Pronay Halder's equalizer in the second leg wasn't enough to get the Red Miners back into the pursuit for a double.
