League leaders Hyderabad FC (HFC) take on playoff hopefuls Kerala Blasters (KBFC) in match 99 of the Indian Super League 2021-22 season at GMC Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Wednesday, February 23. The match will kick off at 7:30 PM IST.

HFC vs KBFC Dream11 prediction

Hyderabad and Kerala Blasters have already played each other once this season. Forward Alvaro Vazquez’s 42nd-minute strike made the difference on that occasion as the Blasters emerged 1-0 victors.

However, a lot has changed since, especially within Hyderabad’s camp with the team winning five of their last seven games while scoring at least three goals in four of those outings. KBFC, on the other hand, have been extremely inconsistent of late and despite leading the head-to-head record against the Nizams 3-2, we expect them to suffer their second defeat in four games.

HFC vs KBFC Dream11 team tips for Indian Super League 2021-22

Top tip: Best forward

HFC forward Bartholomew Ogbeche is an outright pick for a forward in this clash. The former Mumbai City FC frontman has scored 16 goals this season - the most by any player - and has accrued a whopping 1,045 fantasy points in the process. The 37-year-old forward is a strong recommendation for this contest.

Top tip: Best midfielder

Joao Victor has made quite an impact for HFC this season. The 33-year-old Brazilian has netted five goals this season, three of which have come in his last five outings. Having accumulated 765 fantasy points already this season, Victor remains a must-have pick for this match.

Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper

Selected by 91.41 per cent of fantasy users, HFC’s 20-year-old full-back Akash Mishra, who has two goals and three assists to his name this season, is a man in demand. The young defender has tallied an impressive 695 fantasy points this season and has made it to the Dream Team in five of his last six appearances.

As for a goalkeeper, considering current form, Laxmikant Kattimani of HFC should be preferred ahead of KBFC’s Prabhsukhan Singh as the former is not only likely to keep a clean sheet but has also accrued more fantasy points than his competitor in the ongoing campaign.

HFC vs KBFC probable playing XI

HFC playing XI (probable): Laxmikant Kattimani (goalkeeper); Asish Rai, Chinglensana Singh, Juanan, Akash Mishra; Joao Victor (captain), Souvik Chakrabarti; Nikhil Poojari, Edu García, Aniket Jadhav; Bartholomew Ogbeche
