With a win and tied in the Indian Premier League 2020-21, Hyderabad FC are soaring as this is the best start to the season in ISL. Under Manolo Marquez, the club is undergoing a rebuilding process and could even challenge a place in the extension this season.
Under the contract, Owen Coyle's Jamshedpur FC enters the match with a loss followed by a 2--2 draw. Despite the adverse results, Jamshidpour appears to be on the right track with Nereus Valskis, the league's top scorer last season, finding his golden touch in front of goal.
Cowell will also be happy with Jackichand Singh and Valskis who cooperated well in attack. The former was a big part of FC Goa's offensive that helped the club reclaim winners from the previous season.
In a goalless draw against Bengaluru FC, Joel Chianese and Louis Sastre were eliminated in the first half due to injuries. Both players will miss the match against Jamshedpur FC. Forward Fran Sandaza is unlikely to take over the field either. The Marquis will have to dive into the Indian talent pool on his list.
In general, a good match is at stake. Hyderabad FC and Jamshedpur FC will kick off at Tilak Maidain Ground in Vasco on December 2 (Wednesday) at 7:30 PM India Standard Time.
