FCG vs HYD Dream11: Last season's beaten finalists FC Goa hit the road as they travel South to face Hyderabad FC in the Indian Super League round-seven match at G. M. C. Balayogi Athletic Stadium, on Sunday evening (IST). The hosts are currently propping up the table, having won just once in the first six-game,s while the Gaurs are 5th on the points table, but can finish as high as 3rd with a win in this game.
After failing to win in any of the previous two games, Sergio Lobero will look at this game as an opportunity to return to winning ways and climb up the table. Lobero will also look to address his offensive play, which has been a tad average this season, way below than the high-standard Lobero's team has set for itself.
For Hyderabad FC, anything other than a win here will put more pressure on Phil Brown. His team has played good at times, but in the end, it's the number under “W” which matters, and they have only one to show after six games.
