Match 47 of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) season sees Chennaiyin FC take on Hyderabad FC, at the GMC Stadium in Bambolim, Goa, on Monday evening.
Hyderabad FC will be looking to get their season back on track when they host Chennaiyin FC on Monday. The Marina Machans held ATK Mohun Bagan to a goalless draw in their last match while Hyderabad FC have lost three straight games, losing 2-1 to FC Goa in their most recent game.
Chennaiyin have scored only seven goals in eight matches, but have the most shots per match by a team (14.6). Csaba Laszlo will favour his side's chances against a leaky Hyderabad FC defence that has conceded 10 goals due to defensive errors. After conceding just four goals in their first five matches, they have conceded two goals each in their last three matches.
