Hyderabad and Punjab are coming into the game on the back of a recent defeat. Both teams might be at the bottom end of the table but they have different reasons to be positive ahead of this encounter at the GMC Balayogi Stadium in Hyderabad. The positivity will be especially profound for the home team, who had a strong match against Bengaluru just a day ago.

Hyderabad FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

Hyderabad had one of their best performances in recent times against Bengaluru

The team created plenty of opportunities in the final third

Reasons to be fearful

The confidence will be rock-bottom after losing 10 consecutive games

Hyderabad can remain pretty weak at the back

Hyderabad might have just suffered a 10th consecutive defeat in all competitions but there were plenty of positives that coach Thangboi Singto could take from the loss against Bengaluru. After having struggled to create many chances in recent matches, Hyderabad has a decent shot at goal throughout the 90 minutes and it was only through a late effort from Bengaluru that they ended up losing the game. There are no injury concerns for Hyderabad ahead of this game.

Star man – Ramhlunchhunga

Ramhlunchhunga was the best performer for Hyderabad in the loss against Bengaluru. After scoring his first goal of the campaign, the 22-year-old is likely to be a figure to watch. Ramhlunchhunga was positive throughout the match against Bengaluru and he had plenty of efforts at goal.

Punjab FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful 

Punjab played very well despite the big loss against Jamshedpur

Punjab have lost only 50% of the away matches this season

Reasons to be fearful

The club have averaged only a goal per game in away matches

None of the front three looked clinical against Jamshedpur

The scoreline may be hinting at a horrendous performance from Punjab in the recent match against Jamshedpur but Staikos Vergetis and his team played relatively well throughout the 90 minutes. The team were ultimately undone by a few moments of brilliance from Jamshedpur. Punjab might have started the season poorly but they have reasons to be confident about climbing up the table. The team has dropped down to one place above the bottom, but they have a fully fit squad coming into the match.

Star man – Luka Majcen

Luka Majcen missed a penalty in the match against Jamshedpur and it eventually turned out to be quite a costly miss for Punjab. The 34-year-old, though, remains the big offensive threat for Punjab and he has five goals for the campaign.

Hyderabad may have suffered a string of losses that seem to have no end in sight, but the performance against Bengaluru will give the team plenty of confidence. It also helps that they are playing at home but the team has only managed a paltry one point from seven home matches this season. Punjab have a forward line up that can be deadly on their day, but the recent big loss against Jamshedpur will have shaken up the confidence. The two teams may end up cancelling out each other with Hyderabad due a recovery from the poor run.
