In the top-of-the-table clash, Hyderabad FC take on Odisha FC in the Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23 fixture on November 5 at the GMC Stadium in Hyderabad. The match is scheduled to commence at 5:30 PM IST.
Hyderabad FC currently occupy the top spot in the table with 10 points from four games. The Nizams have won three matches so far and are the only unbeaten side alongside Mumbai City FC, against whom they played out an entertaining 3-3 draw in the opening encounter of the campaign.
Since then, Manolo Marquez’s men have won three on the trot without conceding a single goal.
The winning run began with a resounding 3-0 win over Northeast United FC followed by 1-0 wins over Bengaluru FC and FC Goa.
On the other hand, Odisha FC started their season with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Jamshedpur FC before facing a 2-0 defeat to Mumbai City FC.
The Kalinga Warriors then overcame Kerala Blasters FC and Bengaluru FC by 2-1 and 1-0 score lines, respectively.
However, Odisha FC will be wary of the defending champions’ attacking threat in this contest. Hyderabad FC forward Bartholomew Ogbeche has scored twice already this season in addition to one assist. He finished as the top goal-scorer in the previous edition with 18 goals.
Moreover, the Odisha FC strikers will need to come up with their A-game if they are to breach the robust Hyderabad defence, which has kept three consecutive clean sheets.
