On Thursday, January 5, Hyderabad FC will take on FC Goa at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Margao in an effort to take the top spot in the ISL 2022-23 standings. As both the Gaurs and the Nizams are known for playing free-flowing football, it is anticipated that the first match of Matchweek 14 will be intensely offensive.
With 28 points, the defending champions are currently two points behind league leaders Mumbai City FC. However, they have won all four of their previous matches in a row, enjoying a strong run of form. Hyderabad defeated NorthEast United FC 6-1 for their most recent victory.
On the other hand, the Gaurs are in fifth place with 19 points. Goa lost to ATK Mohun Bagan by a score of 1-2 in their most recent matchup in Kolkata. However, they have won four of their last five home games, which is nearly perfect. At the Fatorda Stadium, it’s now about maintaining Carlos Pena’s team’s momentum.
Although Carlos Pena’s team has demonstrated resilience even in defeat, the form radar clearly places Hyderabad slightly ahead of the Goans. As a result, the Nizams won’t have to worry about letting the Gaurs dictate the terms because they will be in charge of everything.
Prediction: FC Goa 1-2 Hyderabad FC
In the Indian Super League, the two teams have met seven times, with FC Goa having a slight advantage over Hyderabad FC. The Gaurs have won three times, while the Nizams have beaten their next opponents twice and drawn twice. Last time out, Javier Siviero scored in the first half to give Manolo Marquez’s team three points.
