In a highly anticipated match in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21, an unbeaten Hyderabad FC will square off against strugglers SC East Bengal at the Tilak Maidan, Vasco, Goa, on Tuesday, December 15.
The Nizams are currently unbeaten in the league after four games. But despite starting off with a win, they have even results in their last three matches. They sit at seventh place with six points and will be keen for a second victory of the season when they face SC East Bengal in the evening.
However, Hyderabad coach Manuel Marquez brushed off talks of pressure. “For me, the pressure is if you are at the bottom of this kind of thing – sorry because East Bengal is at the bottom. But our team is playing good football and we don’t have pressure,” Marquez said.
SC East Bengal is still winless from their four games so far. They are at the bottom of the points table with three defeats.
Robbie Fowler’s team was finally able to earn a point following a goalless draw against Jamshedpur. However, the Red and Golds are still without a goal from four matches and desperately need three points to move from the bottom of the table.
Coach Robbie Fowler sounded positive for their team’s performance saying, “The motivation is always there to win every single game. We are a team with great work ethic. The togetherness from this team is brilliant. We are full of fighters,” he said.
They remain bottom of the table but could prove to be one of the biggest tests for Hyderabad so far this season.
