Hyderabad go down fighting against Odisha

Hyderabad denied multiple penalty shouts as Odisha make most of defensive errors

Hyderabad: The young and spirited Hyderabad FC side put on a solid display against Odisha FC, but were unlucky to concede three on the night.

The Nawabs went down 3-0, with goals from Diego Mauricio (27’, 75’) and Roy Krishna (45+2’) and stay 12th in the league table, after 13 games.

Ramhlunchhunga, Makan Chothe, Abdul Rabeeh and Joseph Sunny, the latter of who was on his first ISL start. The youngsters constantly put the Odisha defenders under pressure.

But mistakes and giveaways at the back gave Odisha a way into the game and saw them steal all three points.

Gurmeet Singh pulled out a couple of impeccable saves while Alex Saji and Muhammed Rafi were also solid.

The result would have been different had a few decisions gone their way. However, Hyderabad were unlucky to concede three and end up on the losing side on the night.

Hyderabad are back in action when they travel to a clash against Mohun Bagan at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata this Saturday, February 10.
