Hyderabad FC vs Jamshedpur FC Match Preview
Hyderabad FC suffered their first big loss of the season, going down 3-0 to Odisha FC at Kalinga Stadium. It was their fifth loss of the campaign leaving the Nawabs deserted and continuing their unwanted winless record in the first 10 games. The side is fearful of the fact that they will stay bottom of the standings if they fail to beat fellow strugglers Jamshedpur in the final game of the year. Without a victory to their name and collecting just four points so far has given Hyderabad FC their worst start ever to an ISL season. It is hard to see from here where the 2022 ISL trophy winners will have the motivation to turn their season around. Thangboi Singto’s team are smelling more trouble having won just once against the Men of Steels in nine meetings till now but none at home.
On the other hand, Jamshedpur FC conceded their sixth defeat of the season against Bengaluru FC at Kanteerava with Javi Hernandez scoring the only goal of the game from the spot before half-time. The home side was the dominating team in the match creating more chances to score but the Red Miners had opportunities to level the score towards the end of the game. Jeremy Manzorro’s effort struck the crossbar minutes after he tested opposition keeper Gurpreet Singh with his free-kick. However, Scott Cooper’s team left the pitch empty-handed. Still, Jamshedpur FC have the chance to return to the 10th spot on the table before the Asian Cup break by repeating their only win so far in the season, coming against Hyderabad FC themselves.
