SC East Bengal vs Hyderabad FC H2H
Hyderabad to win: Why is this a good bet?
- Hyderabad FC are unbeaten in their last 8 matches
- SC East Bengal, by contrast, have won just 1 of their last 5
- The Nizams are at the 4th place in the table with 23 points
- SCEB are at the 9th position with 16 points
- Hyderabad won the first leg of this fixture by 3-2
Hyderabad FC have been in a superb form of late but by no means is their task over. Manuel Roca’s men share 23 points with the 3rd placed FC Goa and the 5th placed NorthEast United. A defeat or a fumble in the form at this stage in the competition can seriously jeopardize their chances of reaching the playoffs.
The Nizams may be unbeaten in their last 8 ISL games but they have won only 3 of those. The wins were certainly impressive – a 4-1 triumph over Chennaiyin, a 4-2 over NEUFC, another 2-0 win over the CFC boys in the second leg.
As for the draws, the ones against Mumbai City and Jamshedpur were highly impressive but they could have just as easily beaten Bengaluru FC instead of drawing 2-2.
All things considered, with just 16 goals conceded, they have got themselves an amicable defence too. But what the boys need now is a series of wins to seal the deal.
Lucky for them, they face the Red and Gold Brigade boys who are still struggling with bouts of inconsistency.
While they most recently beat Jamshedpur FC by 2-1, they also lost to Bengaluru and Mumbai. Nonetheless, SC East Bengal can also draw some motivation from their draws against Goa, Chennaiyin, and Kerala Blasters.
With 16 points, it is not an impossible ask of Robbie Fowler to guide the side to the playoffs, but they need to win all of their matches to have a fighting chance. This is going to be incredibly difficult owing to their lack of form and possibly, confidence.
Over 2.5 goals in the match: Why is this a good bet?
When the two sides met last time in the league, the match saw over 4.5 goals in what proved to be a highly entertaining affair. Given the stakes this time around, we can expect a similar outcome.
For the same reason, we predict this game will see goals from both sides.
