7:15pm- What are the coaches saying?
SC East Bengal head coach Mario Rivera on Hyderbad FC: "Hyderabad, for me, are one of the best teams in the league. They are maybe the most balanced team that plays well in attack as well as in defence. They have a very good coach and he adapted quickly to Indian football during the last season and have one of the top scorers, of course."
Hyderabad FC head coach Manolo Marquez on playing SC East Bengal: "This is the fixture so we have to play them. I think they were playing good football even before winning their last match. They are a competitive team and now they have changed their team a bit. We don’t know a lot about how they will play under the new coach. It will be a difficult game for sure."
7:00pm: Key player in each team!!
Naorem Mahesh Singh (SC East Bengal): Naorem scored twice to guide SC East Bengal to its first win of the season against FC Goa and would feel confident going into the match against Hyderabad FC. Rivera would hope Mahesh Singh continues his clinical form in today's match.
Bartholomew Ogbeche (Hyderabad FC): Top scorer in the Hero ISL this season, Ogbeche is Hyderabad FC’s talisman. Be it long-range efforts or a fox in the box, his skills are a valuable asset for Hyderabad. After missing the last match due to a ban, he will be eager to continue his stellar form in front of goal today and the upcoming matches.

MATCH PREVIEW: ISL 2021-22: Rejuvenated East Bengal faces Hyderabad challenge
Bolstered by the first win of the current Indian Super League season, a rejuvenated SC East Bengal will be looking to amass more points when it takes on Hyderabad FC in the second phase match at Tilak Maidan Stadium on Monday.
Handicapped by the absence of most of its foreign recruits owing to suspension, injury and poor form, the Kolkata giant did well by managing with its committed Indian roster to a good effect. Most of the points that East Bengal earned so far has resulted from the efforts of its domestic players. It was Naorem Mahesh Singh whose brace against FC Goa fetched East Bengal its first win.
New Spanish coach Mario Rivera would be hoping that his team is able to keep the shape and continue the winning momentum.
Rivera will have more to choose from with the availability of Croatian winger Antonio Perosevic, who is returning from a five-match suspension, and the new Brazilian recruit Marcelo Ribeiro, who replaces the Nigerian forward Chima Chukwu.
On the other hand, Hyderabad FC has been winless in the last three games and head coach Manolo Marquez will hope that his team gets the act together to pick up the full points against East Bengal, which is currently lying in the 10th spot with just nine points in its kitty. Despite having lost some points in the last few rounds, Hyderabad is in the fourth spot with 17 points from 11 matches.
