The upcoming match of the Indian Football League will be a close encounter between Odisha FC and Hyderabad FC Scheduled to be played at Shiv Chhatrapati Shivaji Sports Complex, Pune on December 11. The game will kickoff at 7:30 PM IST. The game will be the last home match for Odisha FC. Both teams will look to revive their poor IFL campaigns. Both sides, Hyderabad and Odisha, are winless in their previous four outings. While Odisha FC has played three draws, Hyderabad FC has lost three games out of four, since beating Kerala Blasters 2-1 at home. Odisha FC is currently sitting on the seventh spot while Hyderabad FC is at rock-bottom in the table.
Odisha FC will look to break their three-match draw string when they face Hyderabad FC in front of their home crowd. The Josep Gombau's side has failed to convert their chances into results. Odisha will bank on their star players Aridane Santana and Xisco Hernandez to carve open Hyderabad defence.
Hyderabad FC, with just four points from six games, has been struggling in this year’s IFL. Their fragile midfield is one of the core reason behind their lacklustre performance. They have conceded 13 goals in 7 matches, and that would surely concern coach Phil Brown. Getting the crucial three points will be the top priority for the Hyderabad side.
