ISL 2023-24: Mohun Bagan vs Hyderabad FC – Build-up
Mohun Bagan Super Giant are eager to get back to winning ways in the Indian Super League (ISL) when they host a struggling Hyderabad FC side at the Salt Lake Stadium, Kolkata on Saturday (10th February).
The Mariners are still looking for their first win under new head coach Antonio Habas, and are aware of how important it’ll be to get a win and keep their title ambitions in tact.
The Mariners were barely able to scrap through a draw against rivals East Bengal in the recent Kolkata derby and are not being helped by injury issues at all. Habas is still trying to implement his playing style and tactics into the squad, but time is running out for Mohun Bagan to still at least remain in the race for the league championship.
They have the perfect chance to get back to winning ways against a Hyderabad FC side rooted to the bottom of the ISL table. Losing or even drawing this game could be disastrous, as it could not only end their league championship dreams, but pose even more questions on the ability of this squad and further demoralize fans. The Mariners have to bring their best to the table to get a big win and regain some winning momentum going forward.
Hyderabad FC’s season has been horribly damaged by off-the-pitch instances and they are left with a squad with only one foreign player and a host of young, inexperienced players. With that being said, the Nawabs are still playing some spirited football and are trying their best to put on a valiant show for the fans.
They are definitely the underdogs against Mohun Bagan and are well aware that the majority expect them to lose. The youngsters can use this as a driving force, producing some energetic, free-flowing attacking football to put the Mariners under pressure and get a decent result. Losing this game won’t really matter considering how their form is, but getting even a draw can be a massive boost of confidence for the youngsters.
