Hyderabad FC Vs FC Goa: Build-up
The upcoming ISL 2022-23 match between Hyderabad FC and FC Goa at the G.M.C. Balayogi Athletic Stadium is gearing up to be an exciting one. Manolo Marquez’s men have won two of their opening three matches, while Carlos Pena’s stint as head coach of the Gaurs began with two wins in two matches.
Both teams are contenders to qualify for the playoffs this year. Despite early stages in the league, winning against a direct competitor will be a huge advantage later on. It is hard to predict which team will win the upcoming contest due to the parity in the abilities of both camps.
Hyderabad FC have a huge task of defending their title. Winning the 2021-22 ISL Trophy was a massive achievement by the Nizams and the challenge ahead is even harder. However, Manolo Marquez deserves huge credit for continuing from where his team left off.
They are undefeated in the ISL after the first three games and look balanced in all departments. They are one of the few teams in the league who have both domestic and foreign players deliver equally to the overall success.
FC Goa have to deliver on the huge expectations on its shoulders. The Gaurs had a very disappointing campaign last year, finishing in ninth place and losing out on playoff qualification. Now, the club have Carlos Pena at the helm who has previously played for the club and understands the style and culture of the outfit.
He must deliver playoff qualification this season. With two wins from two opening games, the start could not be better for the Gaurs and their hopeful fans.
