It has been a goal-fest ladies and gentlemen as Hyderabad FC has secured its biggest result in its ISL history by putting six past Odisha.
The Nizams started the second half with just a goal ahead at 2-1 but Hyderabad did not take look to establish its dominance.
Edu Garcia scored his first goal of the season to make it 3-1 with a well-taken finish.
Ogbeche continued his dominance in the second half by making it 4-1 for the team. It was supposed to be his third goal but his first goal in the first half was overturned and was instead given as a Hector Rodas own goal.
Javier Siverio came on as a substitute in the second half and quickly made a mark by scoring Hyderabad's fifth.
The record-breaking sixth goal was scored by Joao Victor from the spot after Siverio was brought down inside the box by Gaurav Bora.
Hyderabad FC's 6-1 win against Odisha FC propels it to second place with 15 points from eight matches. Odisha FC finds itself in seventh with 10 points from eight matches.

Ogbeche turns and shoots low with his weaker left-foot and rattles the back of the net.
58' Nandhakumar with a run of his own now. He gets the better of one player but cannot maintain his control on the ball and ends up losing possession.
55' OFC Sub- Aridai Suarez comes on for Krasniqi.
54' GOOAAALLL!!! HYDERABAD GETS ITS THIRD!! ITS EDU GARCIA!! A wonderful run by the Spaniard. He twists past one defender and immediately takes his shot with his weaker left-foot from the edge of the box. Kamaljit cannot keep that one out. This is his first goal in this season's ISL.
53' Nandhakumar sends a good cross from the left to the front-post but nobody there to convert it.

9' Rodas fouls Aniket on the left flank. It was a clumsy challenge as the latter raced past him after he was played a wonderful through ball by Mishra.
7' Aniket with a clumsy challenge on Sailung. He gets a warning but escapes the card.

MATCH PREVIEW: ISL 2021-22: Confident Hyderabad looks to continue unbeaten run against faltering Odisha
Hyderabad FC has not lost a game since its opening fixture and will be looking to get over its tendency to drop points, something that has troubled it in its last two games against FC Goa and SC East Bengal respectively.

Hyderabad's head coach Manolo Marquez was full of praises for Kiko Ramirez, the Odisha FC manager, but bubbled in confidence about his team's preparation as well.
"For me, Odisha has the best foreign players in the league, even better than the teams at the top of the table..of Course, they have a strong team, and they can beat any team, but then again we can beat them," he said before the match.
Odisha FC, in spite of initial sparks from Javier Hernandez and Aridai Cabrera, has fizzled out after a promising start in the league, managing to earn just four points from a possible 15 in its last five games.
But Ramirez has looked optimistic, saying that he sees the team in a good position with just three points from the second position with one game in hand.
He clarified that Sahil Panwar was fit again to play and will be available for selection in the game. As for Arshdeep Singh, he said he was doing okay as well.
Hyderabad FC currently sits fourth on the table and a win here would take it to the second position, while a win for Odisha FC will be its first after three games and will help it storm into the top four.
