The winner of Northeast, Hyderabad will reach the top-4

Vasco (Goa), 8 January, 7 January (IANS). Northeast United FC will take on Hyderabad FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium in Vasco here today, where they aim to win the match and return to the winning track in the seventh season of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL). Whichever team wins this match will reach the top-4 in the table.

Northeast United FC, known as the Highlanders, had a great start to the seventh season and were unbeaten in the first six matches. But coach Gerrard Nuss has now lost his rhythm for the last few matches and has not won a single in the last five games and lost two.

Northeastern United FC and Hyderabad FC were at the bottom of the table last season, but both teams are in contention to make it to the playoffs this season. The seventh-placed Northeast is just one place and one point behind their rival Hyderabad.

On the other hand, after suffering three consecutive defeats, Hyderabad have returned to the winning streak in their previous match by beating the two-time champions Chennai FC 4–1. Ariadne Santana has scored five goals so far for Hyderabad.

A weak defense will be their concern for Hyderabad coach Manuel Marquez. His team has scored 11 goals so far and they have not achieved a single clean sheet for the last six matches.
