Hyderabad FC Secures First Playoffs with 2-1 Win

The Indian Super League is about to welcome Hyderabad FC for their first-ever semifinals after the football club won against the Kerala Blasters on Wednesday night. Bartholomew Ogbeche blazed through the game, and with the goal he scored alongside Siverio’s, they managed to secure a spot for Hyderabad in the ISL playoffs while also keeping the team on top of the ISL rankings with 35 points. 

As of now, Jamshedpur comes second to Hyderabad with 31 points, followed by ATK Mohun Bagan, Mumbai City, then the Kerala Blasters at fifth.


Hyderabad FC Remains at the Top of the ISL

From the start of the match, Hyderabad FC had already set the tone of the game with the constant pressure they applied against the Blasters’ defence. Joel Chianese had the first opportunity to score a goal. When that didn’t work out, Mohammed Yasir made sure his long ball reached the inside of the Blasters’ box, where Rohit Danu readily received it and passed it along to Ogbeche. The Nigerian national took it and kicked it into the net before Blasters defender Bijoy Varghese could steal the ball from him. The score marked Ogbeche’s seventeenth goal for the season.

As an attempt to find the equaliser, Kerala had Chencho Gyeltshen advance with the help of Harmanjot Khabra and Adrian Luna, but Gyeltshen’s strike hit the crossbar. The first half ended with Hyderabad in the lead with one goal.

The Kerala Blasters felt the stakes at the second half with Alvaro Vazquez’s back flick that unfortunately went straight to the Hyderabad goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani, who had previously blocked other attempts from Chencho and Khabra at the start of the second half.

Hyderabad’s keeper also kept the Blasters at bay, with Prabhsukhan Gill blocking a shot from Ogbeche and fending off Rohit Danu in the process. He finally gave way to Siverio, assisted by Nikhil Poojary, and Hyderabad secured their second goal in the match.

The Karal Blasters got their goal too late at the 90th minute, courtesy of Vincy Barretto, who sent the ball flying from outside the box and into the Hyderabad net. 

Hyderabad will go against Jamshedpur on 1 March 2022 and the Kerala Blasters against Mumbai City on 2 March 2022.
