21:01 (IST)


74' | Diego Mauricio hits the crossbar. A silky piece of footwork from the Odisha FC forward as he moved in inside the box after receiving the ball on the left flank.

ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, Hyderabad FC vs Odisha FC: Halicharan, Alexander Score as Hyderabad vs Odisha Ends 1-1

ISL 2020-21 Highlights, Hyderabad FC vs Odisha FC: The match between Hyderabad FC and Odisha FC ends all square as an inspired second-half display from the Kalinga Warriors restrict the Nizams. It was Hyderabad FC  who broke the deadlock on the 13th-minute of the match as Halicharan scored his fourth goal of the season. A long ball was played in, Aridane knocked it down for Liston. The Goan collected the ball, moved inside the box and played a perfect square pass for incoming Halicharan, who cooly slotted it past a helpless Arshdeep. Then on the 51st minute of the match, HFC got their equaliser through their South African midfielder Cole Alexander. From a throw-in, Diego Mauricio laid the ball into the path of Alexander, who used an HFC defender as a shield and fired in his shot into the bottom corner. Kattimani had no chance there.

Both teams got the opportunity to get the winner, however, some last gasp defending from both sides meant points were shared at the Fatorda Stadium.


Hyderabad FC may only have got a point against Indian Super League (ISL) leaders Mumbai City FC in their previous game, but the result was important in many ways. In what was one of their most difficult matches of the season. The Nizams put on a gritty display to register their third clean sheet of the season, restricting MCFC -- a side that has scored the most this season -- to a goalless draw. The Nizams could have also bagged the three points, had they converted their chances.

Now, after an improved performance against the Islanders, Hyderabad coach Manuel Marquez will be hoping for more of the same from his side when they face bottom-placed Odisha FC at the Fatorda Stadium here on Tuesday. A victory in their next game will put Hyderabad level against FC Goa, who are currently third.

"For sure (the confidence is high), when you get a good result (against Mumbai) even (though) we wanted to win. The performance of the team was very good in all the aspects -- physically, tactically, and technically," Marquez said.

The last time these two sides met early in the season, Hyderabad got the better of an injury-marred Odisha side, thanks to Aridane Santana's penalty. With form on their side, Hyderabad will start favourites again but Marquez is expecting a different challenge from Odisha this time around.

"In that game, we played better but we only won 1-0 with a penalty. Odisha have been playing better in the last few games. I know they are the last team on the table but all the people who are following this championship know you can win or lose against other teams," he said

Odisha come into the game after a demoralising loss against Chennaiyin FC -- their seventh defeat of the season, which is also the most by any side. They only have six points in their kitty and anything less than a win on Tuesday would further dent their playoff hopes.

But despite the odds stacked against them, Odisha coach Stuart Baxter is hoping for an improved show against Hyderabad, who he labelled as one of the most complete sides in the league.

"With the team we had in the first game, we played a good game, although it was decided by a penalty after a massive mistake by us. I'm hoping we can show we have improved and deal with them a lot better," Baxter stated.
