Hyderabad FC begins its Durand Cup with a clinical performance over TRAU FC. At no stage in the game, did the ISL Champion look threatened as it reeled in an easy win thanks to two long-range goals. Halicharan Narzary and Borja Gonzalez scored in each half, with the former scoring a right-footed curler, while the latter banging it in with his left foot.
Manolo Marquez and his men have three more matches in the group stage, with the next being a clash against fellow ISL side Chennaiyin FC on August 26. TRAU FC will be next up against Army Red FT on August 28.
