7:15pm: What are the coaches saying?

Hyderabad FC head coach Manolo Marquez on Odisha FC: "Now they [Odisha FC] changed the coach. Coach Kino wasn't on the bench yet. I wish that he can be there tomorrow but at the moment, the team is very similar. They play more or less the same style. Maybe they press a bit more. The wingers Jerry and Nandha are the same. Javi Hernandez plays as an attacking midfielder or sometimes as a false nine. Thoiba is the central midfielder. Now Sahil Panwar is in better shape than the first match against us as it was his first match but more or less the style of the team is very similar. In my opinion, the coach doesn't play, it's the players who play the game.

Odisha FC head coach Kino Garcia on preparing for the match: " Hyderabad FC are in really good shape and one of the best teams in the tournament. They have had the same coach. We are ready to face them and we are sure not to concede so many goals against them. The team has a good mentality and is prepared to compete even though it will be tough like the match against ATK Mohun Bagan was. We know they play 1-4-4-2 and really compact. They know how to make movements in attack, but we will use our weapons to face them."

MATCH PREVIEW

Odisha FC showed some resolute defending when it played a goalless draw against ATK Mohun Bagan in its last match but it will break into the top four if it can secure three points against a high-flying Hyderabad FC side. 

It has been a season of ups and downs for Odisha FC. While it has been able to churn out convincing wins, consistency has been an issue for the side. In its last five matches, the Kalinga Warriors have won and lost two games each while the fifth one ended in a draw. 

Odisha has kept a clean sheet in its last two matches. However, interim coach Kino Garcia will be well aware that Hyderabad won 6-1 when both teams met earlier this season.

"Hyderabad FC are in really good shape and one of the best teams in the tournament. They have had the same coach. We are ready to face them and we are sure not to concede so many goals against them," Garcia told the media. 

Hyderabad FC will come into the match confident after the 4-0 drubbing of SC East Bengal in its last match, where Bartholomew Ogbeche scored his first hat-trick of the season.

Coach Manolo Marquez knows that a win against Odisha will keep his team at the top. But with a determined backline and an in-form Arshdeep Singh, who has a save percentage of 84.61%, it would not be a walk in the park for Hyderabad. 

Marquez hinted at the possible exclusion of either Ogbeche or Javier Siverio against Odisha. 

"I had said before that we had to find the correct moment for both players to play together. Both played ninety minutes three days back so we have to see if we start both or only one of them."
