The final of the 2021-22 Indian Super League  season will be held between Hyderabad FC and Kerala Blasters in the presence of fans at a packed Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Fatorda, Goa.

You can take a look at our special preview here.

Now that you're done with that, today, we take a look at the four Hyderabad FC players who could play a very important role in deciding the final.

4 HFC players who could define the ISL 2021-22 final:

1. Bartholomew Ogbeche

Since making the move from Mumbai City FC to Hyderabad FC, Nigerian striker Bartholomew Ogbeche has been the best player in the league, having scored 18 goals in 18 games and could be in the mood to win his second ISL title on the trot.

2. Javier Siverio

Siverio has been the shining light at Hyderabad FC, more so whenever the Nizams have missed Ogbeche in the squad.

With seven goals to show for his efforts, Siverio scored at important junctures in the season to almost lead Hyderabad FC to the ISL league winners shield.

3. Joao Victor

The engine which keeps Hyderabad FC going, Joao Victor is the glue that holds his side strong while ensuring they dominate possession in midfield.

Apart from his relentless work in midfield, Victor has five goals to show for himself this season.

4. Laxmikant Kattimani

It's not often that a goalkeeper makes the list of important players to look out for in a game.

However, against Kerala Blasters in the ISL 2021-22 final, Hyderabad FC would need their goalkeeper at his very best.

Kattimani could be vital for his side and be more effective as compared to his the Kerala Blasters goalkeeper Prabhsukhan Gill on penalty shootouts too, if the game reaches that stage.
