ATK Mohun Bagan vs Hyderabad FC: Build-up
ATK Mohun Bagan aims to recover from the harrowing loss to FC Goa when they host Indian Super League (ISL 2022-23) leaders Hyderabad FC on Saturday. With the Nizams already six points ahead of them (with one extra game played), the Mariners hope to reduce that gap and get closer to the ISL top spot with a much-needed ‘big game win’. Meanwhile, Hyderabad FC come into this game on the backdrop of a narrow defeat against Kerala Blasters! They too, will be willing to get back on track.
Juan Ferrando’s side have had a very topsy-turvy start to the season. While they have won three out of their first six games, including a huge away win over Kerala Blasters, things haven’t always gone that easily. The Mariners have struggled in the matches against the ‘big sides’ – losing to FC Goa, Chenaniyin FC and scratching a draw against Mumbai City.
They haven’t completely dominated any game so far and are yet to find their best form. Ferrando hasn’t been helped by injury troubles, but he’s yet to find his best XI this season. He’ll hope his side can hit top gear against the defending ISL playoff winners.
Hyderabad FC have had a great start to the season, picking up 16 from a possible 21 points so far. However, like ATKMB, they don’t seem to have hit top gear yet. Four out of their five wins have been 1-0 affairs. They have scored 10 goals from 7 games, which isn’t really enough for a championship contender.
They’re coming at the back of a defeat as well, a surprising 0-1 loss to Kerala Blasters. Manolo Marquez will need to get his side refocused and exploit the weaknesses and lack of confidence within the Mariners.
