Hyderabad FC will look to continue their unbeaten run of form when they face a marauding Mumbai City FC…
Hyderabad FC have scored a mere six goals this season in the Indian Super League (ISL) from their five matches. They are one of the two sides, alongwith Bengaluru FC, to be unbeaten, they are yet to hit top gear especially when it comes to goal scoring.
In fact, they did score three in their last game against East Bengal – a team which has the joint worst defensive record in the league.
Coach Manuel Marquez explained that converting goalscoring opportunities is the most difficult job. He also highlighted that they are certainly improving in this department and threw some statistics to back his claim.
“This is the most difficult in football. If we had (more) top scorers, maybe by now we would have been at the top of the table. We are not a small team but we have to work in every training session and it’s not easy. If you look at the statistics of the last game, we had eight shots on target which is a very good number but we have to improve (convert chances) in these situations.
“There are 20 games in the championship. Last week the question was, after three draws, if I am worried. Now, after a win, the question is if we lose tomorrow against Mumbai City. We have to be prepared for Mumbai and after Mumbai the same thing for Kerala (Blasters),” said Marquez.
