Hyderabad FC will lock horns with Kerala Blasters in the Indian Football League on Tuesday. While Kerala are most certainly out of the title race and find themselves at the 10th place in the 11-team table with 16 points from 17 matches, Hyderabad are in with a real big chance to finish in the top four and are currently placed fifth with 24 points from 17 matches.
No known injury concerns from the Hyderabad camp and they should go with their best XI at this stage of the competition as a chance to proceed to the next round looms.
They scored a couple of goals in their previous match and might as well play the same XI with some minor tactical adjustments. No injury news from the Kerala camp either.
With an opportunity to reach the final four here, expect Hyderabad to come out with attacking mindset. They are sure to go for the three points against a lowly ranked and low in confidence Kerala and would look to net in a goal early to further dampen the spirit of the opposition. Meanwhile, Kerala can still be of relevance if they snatch points from their opponent. Good performances even in the latter stages of the season can be the perfect setting for the forthcoming season.
Probable Playing XI:
Laxmikant Kattimani, Asish Rai, Chinglensana Singh, Odei Onaindia, Akash Mishra, Lluis Sastre, Joao Victor, Liston Colaco, Joel Chianese, Halicharan Narzary, Aridane Santana
Albino Gomes, Sandeep Singh, Jordan Murray, Jeakson Singh, Rahul KP, Sahal Abdul Samad, Vicente Gomez, Costa Nhamoinesu, Juande, Yondrembem Denechandra, Gary Hooper
Goalkeepers: Albino Gomes, Laxmikant Kattimani
Defenders: Asish Rai, Costa Nhamoinesu, Akash Mishra, Sandeep Singh
Midfielders: Halicharan Narzary, Vicente Gomez, Rahul KP, Joao Victor
