In an entertaining fixture of Indian Super League today, Hyderabad FC will lock horns with Jamshedpur FC at Tilak Maidan.
The Nizams had a good start to their ISL campaign as they were successful in collecting four points in two matches. Hyderabad FC is one of the two teams who haven’t conceded a goal yet. Hence, the club will be eager to upraise their performance making their move to the upside of the points table.
On the other hand, Owen Coyle’s Jamshedpur FC bagged only one point in two matches. Their opening match against Chennaiyin FC was a 2-1 loss while they missed the winning game against Odisha FC in a 2-2 draw. Unfortunately, the first choice goal-keeper Rehenesh TP will be out of the squad as he received a red card in the previous match against Odisha FC.
3 INDIANS AND 3 FOREIGN PLAYERS TO LOOK OUT FOR FROM HYDERABAD FC
Akash Mishra, Liston Colaco and Chinglensana Singh will be the Indian players to look out in the camp of Hyderabad FC.
The 18-year-old former Indian Arrows left-back Akash Mishra has been solid in the defensive line, also helping the team offensively to push higher from the left side and make space. On the other hand, Liston Colaco missed the previous match but he has already impressed the coach in the first match coming in as a substitute. Fans will be impatient to see him creating chances and scoring astonishing goals. Centre-back Chinglensana Singh was the Hero of the Match in the previous outing and will surely make an impact in defence alongside Odei Onaindia.
Joao Victor, Odei Onaindia, Aridane Santana are the foreign players to look out for. Odei Onaindia and Joao Victor will be a vital part of the squad as they will be looking after the defence and midfield. Striker Aridane Santana will be eager to stamp his name at the top of highest goal scorers, helping the team to win further games.
3 INDIANS AND 3 FOREIGN PLAYERS TO LOOK OUT FOR FROM JAMSHEDPUR FC
Jamshedpur FC’s goal-keeper Pawan Kumar, Laldinliana Renthlei and Jackichand Singh will be on the list of Indian players to watch out. As Rehenesh TP will miss guarding the goal, Pawan Kumar will have the crucial responsibility to keep the clean sheet. While as, Renthlei has already showcased his defensive abilities partnering with foreign defenders. Right-winger Jackichand Singh will play his role in chipping in the crosses for Nerijus Valskis and assist him in the box.
The three foreign players to look out for are Peter Hartley, Aitor Monroy and Nerijus Valskis. Peter Hartley has been the pivotal man in defence for Jamshedpur FC making important clearances and tackles. Meanwhile, Aitor Monroy will be the connecting person between defenders and strikers to create chances and also produce some pressure on opponents. The Lithuanian striker Nerijus Valskis has already been racing again for Golden Boot scoring 3 goals in two matches. Without any doubt, he will be seen scoring more goals, leading the team to the victory.
Hyderabad FC’s Joel Chianese and Lluis Sastre have undergon injury in the previous match against Bengaluru FC. No reports of injuries were from Jamshedpur FC side, hence, Coyle will have a full squad available for selection.
