Hyderabad FC were the most improved side
Hyderabad FC set the stage alight in the seventh edition of the Indian Super League. The second season for the outfit was a huge improvement from the inaugural 2019-20 campaign, where they had finished last in the standings.
Manolo Marquez had a huge impact during his first season in Indian football, as he guided Hyderabad to a fifth-place finish. Despite staying in contention for the playoffs throughout, the Nizams missed out on qualification on the final day due to a string of draws and dropped points.
