Hyderabad FC vs Kerala Blasters H2H
Hyderabad FC to draw or win: Why is this a good bet?
- The Nizams are in the 5th place with 24 points
- The Blasters are in the 10th place with 16 points
- Hyderabad are unbeaten in their last 9 ISL games
- Kerala Blasters have lost 2 of their last 5
- The Tuskers won the first leg of this by 2-0
Manuel Roca’s Hyderabad FC have just 3 games remaining in the league. With 24 points, they are tied with FC Goa for the 4th place, with Jamshedpur FC and Bengaluru lurking behind with 21 and 19 points respectively.
The Nizams need a win here to keep the pressure up high on the Gaurs; any defeat or even a draw will make it difficult for them to reach the playoffs.
Even though HFC have been impressive so far with 9 games unbeaten, they haven’t quite managed to win most of them and had to settle for a draw on numerous occasions. Most recently, they held SC East Bengal and NorthEast United to draws, but they also beat Chennaiyin by 2-0.
Additionally, they have also drawn against Odisha and Jamshedpur.
As for Kerala Blasters, all they can do now is play for pride. Kibu Vicuna’s side has been largely unsuccessful in repeating the antics of previous seasons. 17 games in, they have won just 3 while losing and drawing another 7. They have also conceded an astonishing 29 goals, making them of the worst performers, defensively.
The Tuskers last faced the bottom-placed Odisha FC and settled for a 2-2 draw. Before that, they fell to Mumbai City and ATK Mohun Bagan.
All things considered, there a few positives for the Tuskers that they can tap into when they look to pull the Nizams down. For instance, the Blasters beat Bengaluru by 2-1 and also held FC Goa to a very respectable 1-1 draw.
Given the overall form and rhythm of Hyderabad FC, they should win this one comfortably.
Both Teams to Score: Why is this a good bet?
Hyderabad, pegged as the favourites to win, are likely to score in this game. Coming to Kerala Blasters, they have scored in 5 goals in their last 3 matches. Logic dictates that the trend should continue in this game too, especially considering the shoddy defence of the 11th placed team.
As for Over 2.5 goals in this match bet, we say this because Kerala have seen this trend in their last 3 matches. Meanwhile, Hyderabad FC have settled for low-scoring games of late but they do have the necessary firepower to turn the tide around.
