Hyderabad FC head coach Manolo Marquez - More or less, we played according to plan. They were better than us in the first leg. Maybe they had better possession tonight, but we played really well. I think that it's very easy to train my players. They do everything I ask them and believe in my work. Today, we were compact in defence and Mumbai hardly found any empty space. So, I'm very proud of my players. We had the problem with Fran Sandaza, our other No. 9. Practically, Aridane Santana is forced to play every minute. I knew if he had to be fully fit for the next game, I had to take him out in the 70th minute. We spend a lot of time together in the hotel and on the field. I have a fantastic bunch of players and it's not about an individual. For us, it's always a team effort.

Mumbai City FC coach Sergio Lobera -  Obviously, I'm not happy because we always want to win three points. The draw is a fair result though, because we didn't play well and Hyderabad FC was clever. I didn't want to lose an important player for ten days. Hugo Boumous was rested for that reason. He wasn't 100% and I have other players who can do the job well. That's the advantage of having an amazing squad and everyone is ready to step up. My strategy for every game is different. I need to choose the best playing XI based on the opponent. And that's why I've been alternating between Adam le Fondre and Bartholomew Ogbeche. Hopefully, we continue this unbeaten run (10 games now) and go into the ISL season seven playoffs as the top-ranked team.

I think it’s very important, the level of Indian players if you want to achieve something important. The level of my Indian players is amazing, they are improving day-by-day. Most important is their attitude to want to learn every day. If we want to win trophies, we need the level of Indian players to be high during all the season,"

ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, Mumbai City FC vs Hyderabad FC: Mumbai and Hyderabad Play Out Goalless Draw

ISL 2020-21 HIGHLIGHTS, Mumbai City FC vs Hyderabad FC Latest Updates: Mumbai City FC and Hyderabad FC played out a goalless draw at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim in the Indian Super League. Hyderabad put up a solid performance in defence to restrict Mumbai from establishing their superiority and ended up threatening their table topping opposition a number of times as well.

Hyderabad pinned their opponents with their high pressing approach. They were lucky to not concede an early penalty when Raynier Fernandes was fouled after an attempted clearance from Mohammed Yasir. The referee awarded an indirect free-kick inside the box, which Mumbai failed to capitalise on.

It was an end-to-end battle in the first half, as both the keepers were called into action.

First, Laxmikant Kattimani produced a fine save to deny Adam le Fondre. Then, at the other end, Amrinder Singh kept his side alive in the game.

Aridane Santana, Joel Chianese and Liston Colaco combined together to initiate the move before Colaco tried his luck from the byline, but his near post effort was well saved by Amrinder.

The Mumbai defense has been exceptional this season and Amrinder was at his best once again to deny Chianese.

This was undeniably the best opportunity for Hyderabad to take the lead. Winning the ball in the midfield, Yasir delivered a lobbed through-ball for Chianese to send him one-on-one with the keeper. But the Australian's shot was blocked by Amrinder.

It was more of a nervous start for Mumbai in the second half. They gave the ball away easily and nearly conceded a goal, when Amrinder, in a bid to clear a back pass, played it straight to Colaco. However, the Hyderabad striker shot wide.

Colaco continued to trouble Mumbai with his pace and shooting range, but it wasn't enough to get the goal they were looking for. Meanwhile, for Mumbai, they were not at their best in the second session. Lobera's men were sloppy going forward and wasted too many chances in the final third.

Mumbai had two late opportunities to get the winner. Ahmed Jahouh lobbed the ball in the box for Bartholomew Ogbeche, whose first-time shot landed on the roof. Later, the Moroccan's stoppage-time free-kick couldn't get the desired connection from his teammate, as it was easily collected by Kattimani.
