Chennaiyin FC are unbeaten in their last four games with three draws and a win while Hyderabad FC have lost their last three matches. Both Chennaiyin and Hyderabad have shown inconsistency where they have displayed good football but have been guilty of making mistakes at crucial junctures, which have lost them points. Chennaiyin have been inconsistent throughout while Hyderabad have seen a recent slump.
Poor finishing has cost CFC in the games so far and they have given away goals from set-piece situations which would not please the coach Csaba Laszlo as team has two wins, two losses and four draws so far. "We are working on it. We conceded all together seven goals, five from set-pieces. The last game was a clean-sheet and we have to continue in this way. We have good players who can defend," Laszlo said at the press meet ahead of Monday's game.
Up against an attack-minded CFC, the Hyderabad line-up, especially the defence would be facing a huge challenge. The CFC coach Laszlo isn't taking Hyderabad FC lightly and said they had been playing really well, adding "every team must be careful to play against them."
