GMC Balayogi Stadium is the location for the 2023-24 ISL game between Hyderabad and Bengaluru. Both teams have been struggling for results at the start of the season. Hyderabad have been rooted to the bottom of the standings but the team did pick up a great point against Mumbai City in the last match.

Meanwhile, Bengaluru are coming into the game after seeing their two-game unbeaten sequence come to a crashing halt in painful circumstances against Odisha. This happens to be the first loss for Bengaluru, who have suffered the biggest defeat of the season. Of course, the sending-off worked against Bengaluru in helping the team pick up a second win of the season.

Hyderabad FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

An impressive comeback against a defensively resolute Mumbai outfit

Defensively, Hyderabad are much better than many of the other struggling outfits

Reasons to be fearful

Failure to beat a team player with 10 men for most of the game

Hyderabad continue to struggle for goals

Hyderabad are still waiting for the first success of the season but the point against Mumbai City is likely to feel closer to a victory. The late equaliser was a sucker punch for Mumbai City and it has helped Hyderabad get the first points of the season.

Hyderabad will be looking to build on this result with the team playing at home in the subsequent match. A result in the game against Bengaluru is crucial for Hyderabad with three out of the next four games away from home.

Star man – Joe Knowles

Joe Knowles is yet to score in the Indian Super League since his move from Brisbane Roar. He has been a regular fixture for Hyderabad after featuring in all four matches so far. Even though he is yet to score for his new team, the opportunities are likely to come about given the strong attacking display shown by Hyderabad in the recent match.

Bengaluru FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Sunil Chhetri is back among the goals

Bengaluru have scored two goals in two of the recent three ISL games

Reasons to be fearful

Losing the 2-0 lead against Odisha can have a significant hit on the team's confidence

Bengaluru have only managed one win in the last five games

Bengaluru are aiming for the second success against Hyderabad in the history of the ISL. After a string of losses to this opponent in recent years, Bengaluru are probably best equipped now to end this run coming into the match. Bengaluru played extremely well for a decent chunk of the game against Odisha, while Hyderabad have been lacking the zing in so many departments.

Coach Simon Grayson has ended up suffering two losses in his three games against Hyderabad in the past. The 53-year-old does not have any injury issues in the squad while there are also big positives like the form of Chhetri.

Star man – Sunil Chhetri

Sunil Chhetri has come to form at a crucial stage in the campaign. The 39-year-old found the back of the net in the recent away match against Odisha. Chhetri happens to be the top scorer in this fixture with three goals. He has also been able to pick up two goals in his three league matches this season.

Hyderabad might have struggled for victories in this season so far. Coach Thangboi Singto has also personally struggled against Bengaluru with only one win in nine outings. However, the home match would aid Hyderabad in a massive way while Bengaluru are likely to still have effects of the Odisha match within the team.

Hyderabad have managed four successive wins against Bengaluru and the last time they failed to win against this opponent was in January 2021.
