The Juggernauts have won only once in their last five games in the Indian top-flight.
Hyderabad FC enjoyed their biggest-ever victory in the Indian Super League (ISL) with a 6-1 win against Odisha FC. The Nizams took the lead inside the opening 10 minutes through an own goal by Hector Rodas. Bartholomew Ogbeche scored a brace while Edu Garcia, Javier Siverio and Joao Victor got one each. Odisha’s solitary goal was an own goal from Hyderabad FC defender Juanan.
The result saw Hyderabad FC climb to the second spot in the points table. One the other hand, the loss for Odisha FC means that the Juggernauts have won only once in their last five matches, losing thrice.
Following the game, Odisha FC head coach Kiko Ramirez spoke in the post-match press conference.
Every shot went in
Kiko Ramirez felt that everything their opponent tried on Tuesday night, worked out for them against his side. “Every shot of the other team went inside the net. What can we say?” he began.
Preparation for the next match
The loss meant that Odisha FC are winless in their last four matches. However, the Spaniard emphasized that they will be focusing on the upcoming match and not the previous results.
“Now we will try to realize the result and try to prepare the team for the next match,” he stated.
Impact on top four aspirations
On being asked about how this recent string of bad results will impact the Juggernauts’ playoff chances, the tactician replied, “It affects now our mood and how we feel (sic). But the season is long. The things that happen again in the pitch. Some things that are happening match after match, these things affect us,” he quipped.
“Today as a coach, we did bad and we lose 6-1. But there are other people inside the pitch that didn’t work properly. That’s the reality but we lost 6-1,” Kiko Ramirez concluded.
