On the other hand, the Nizams will be looking to push their bounds, they are ranked 5th on the points table with the potential to improve with each passing match. Hyderabad FC has won 2 of their last 4 matches, even defeating title holders Mumbai City FC, which showcases a strong form as they have managed to perform well under pressure which might continue in this match.

Assistant coach, Alison Kharsyntiew said the team will be much more clinical with their approach in the next game. He also admitted to the fact that the team is coming into the match just after their encounter against Odisha FC on 10 December, and some of the players are yet to fully recover.
