Hyderabad FC Head Coach Manuel Marquez After the Match

"It's not normal to score four goals in two cionsecutive games but we know we have good players in the offensive part. Today again Aridane scored and Joel score and Liston scored, finally. I love this guy and I say it everyday but he finally scored two after last season. Except the last five minutes, we did lose control of the game in the first half with the penalty and those goals. But I think the result is fair because in the second half we attacked more than NorthEast.

"I think at half time, it was one of the day when I was very, very angry with some details, not with the players, the performance was good but you cannot lose concentration in five minutes. I was very angry but of course, we had 45 minutes and I said we have to play like 0-0 again.

"I think that this will be the normal thing till the end of the competition. Yesterday, Nishu Kumar was injured. I don't know how Joao finished the game, he was not only tired but had pain in the hamstring. We can now rest till 16 Jan but from then till 28th Feb, we have to play 10 games. It's no excuse though. I have to use more players in the second leg if we want to arrive fresh for the end."

NorthEast United FC Head Coach Gerard Nus After the Game

"Disappointing result, we wanted to win. We came with a plan, how to defend and attack, but not good. We showed spirit in the first half to come back, also the timing was great. But at the end of the day, like I said against Odisha we created chances but didn't score. Today, it happened again. We have to keep working, we have to be more clinical in front of the game. It's the hardest thing in football to score goals but we've got to keep going.

"Machado had a yellow card, also Mashoor, so that was the substitution. When you play with Fox, he can provide opportunities as well in the set pieces and also from the back. But Machado had a great game and I was very happy with him as well. But we wanted to bring in new energy. We though those substitutions were the right thing to do.

"We know Ashutosh is really good going up. We can also attack from the left. We didn't have plans to just attack the right, that's makes a team more unpredictable. This is a young squad, many players don't have ISL experience but this is a club that develops players and that takes time. I don't think we deserved to lose but we have to get prepared for the next game.

"Both are good goalkeepers. Gurmeet is younger and has a lot of time ahead, I am happy for him. Subhasish is experienced. I don't think either of them are miles ahead of each other. It's good for the coach to have that option."

Liston Colaco After the Match

"I am very happy with my performance. They were important goals and an important victory for us as a team.

"I have been training very hard. In the first few games, I wasn't hitting the target so I practiced a lot and that showed today.

"I prefer to play as a left winger.

"I love to score and I want to score in every match against every opponent."

21:38 (IST)

Hero of the Match Joel Chianese After the Game

"We take the three points, that's all that matters. We were two-nil up and we thought we would have the lead at half time but it was nervy and we conceded. But we showed a lot of character, good mood in the camp.

"I saw the boys playing and did all I could to play along. I am just enjoying playing football in India.

"It's a tough match but I think here anyone can beat anyone on the day. We will be fresh and prepared. They have got very good players and we are going to be ready. If we slip up like tonight, we might find it tough but I think we will be prepared."

Fantastic, entertaining game at the Tilak Maidan as Hyderabad FC came out victorious with that second half brace from Liston Colaco. He came on in the 64th minute and made all the difference in the end as he struck a double to give Hyderabad the 4-2 win against NorthEast United FC. It was even till the last five minutes when Liston took down three NEUFC defenders to score his first and finished it off with a second in the stoppage time. Joel Chianese was brilliant throughout the match with a goal and an assist in the first half. NorthEast United FC played extremely well in the first half and reaped benefits of the same towards the end of it. However, Hyderabad were pretty much in control in the second half and with Luis Machado being substituted, NorthEast took a defensive stance, something that perhaps cost them.

90+4' | GOAL! Liston Colaco gets a sensational brace. A brilliant flick off the back of his shoulder from Santana and Colaco gets to the ball and as he is through, he takes his time and slots the ball home calmly to get his second of the night. He had scored two against NorthEast last season and he does the same this season as well.

What an exciting half of football there! Hyderabad FC got the lead off Aridane Santana and Joel Chianese but overall, NorthEast United FC was the better team in those first 45 minutes and they reaped benefits of that in the last few minutes with Federico Gallego's penalty and Benjamin Lambot's goal got them back in the game. Surely, it will be a very interesting second half!

45+2' | GOAL! Benjamin Lambot strikes home amidst a melee in the box. A beautiful ball is floated to the near post and Ashutosh heads at the goal and what follows is a scramble with Kattimani fighting five NorthEast players alone.

HFC are currently sixth in the league table, with 12 points from nine games while NorthEast United are a notch below with 11 points. While Hyderabad managed to arrest their three-match losing streak with a commanding victory over Csaba Lazlo's side in the last game, the Highlanders have not registered a victory in any of their last five games, picking up just three points. But both teams are equally matched and could produce an exciting contest on Friday.

Hyderabad FC head coach Manuel Marquez is not going to take NorthEast United FC lightly. "NorthEast are a well-organised side. They are a team with a lot of young players and a smart coach. Not just Appiah, Lambot, Apuia and Ninthoi, they have a lot of quality in their squad and are a dangerous side to face," said Marquez. "I know they have had a few poor results recently, but the performances were not bad and they can surely get a result from this game, and so can we," he added.

NorthEast United coach Gerard Nus is aware that when his side take on HFC, they will have to focus not just on Santana. "We know they are good with the ball and that they score goals in many ways," Nus said. "They score a lot from set-pieces and Aridane is always a threat. He's got a great goal-scoring record from last season as well and this year, he has scored five. He is a big guy but they have so many other players in attack. We have to be at our best to know how to manage them and create chances and put the ball in the net."
