90' We go into four minutes of stoppage time. Hyderabad FC has enjoyed much of the ball possession in the last five minutes, but Jamshedpur FC remains well-organised defensively.

89' Substitution: Farukh Choudhary makes way for Sumeet Passi.

83' Substitution: Piti is replaced by Noe Costa as Jamshedpur FC looks to see out the last 10 minutes of the match.

77' SAVED! Kamaljit Singh dives to his left to keep out a Farukh Choudhary header! Aniket Jadhav in the thick of the action again, it's a wonderful cross that picks out Farukh, and but for Kamaljit, Jamshedpur FC would be 4-1 up.

75' GOAL! Sergio Castel produces a composed finish to put Jamshedpur FC 3-1 up! It's a long ball from Memo Moura that creates the chance but Castel's intelligent movement and calm head were instrumental to him scoring the goal. He twists and turns to create some space and slots it in the bottom left corner with his right foot. Kamaljit Singh helpless!

73' SAVED! Sergio Castel's effort is saved by Kamaljit Singh. Castel manufactures some space and strikes it with his left foot, looking to curl it into one of the corners. It's, however, right down the middle and an easy save for the Hyderabad FC goalkeeper.

65' Substitution: Marcelinho is substituted! Gani Ahmed replaces the Hyderabad FC goal-scorer.

62' GOAL! Jamshedpur FC has found plenty of joy down the left-hand-side since the start of the second half, and that's where the second goal is created from. Farukh Choudhary is allowed time and space to play a low cross into the box for the arriving Aniket Jadhav, who, again, has time to take a touch and set himself up for a shot. It's a sweet, rising effort, and he beats Kamaljit Singh in the Hyderabad FC goal.

59' CHANCE! Aniket Jadhav could have had a goal soon after coming on for Isaac Vanmalsawma. Sergio Castel plays a cross from the edge of the box, the ball's slightly behind Aniket as he goes in for his attempt. He gets his head to the ball and looks to direct the ball towards goal, but doesn't get the contact desired and it flashes over the crossbar.

58' Substitution: Hyderabad FC's substitution is quickly followed by a change for Jamshedpur FC: Isaac Vanmalsawma is replaced by Aniket Jadhav.

55' Substitution: Sahil Panwar's replaced by Asish Rai. Not a good sight for Hyderabad FC, which sees Sahil stretchered off the field.

50' Farukh Choudhary drives in from the right flank and looks to play a low cross across for the waiting Sergio Castel, but it's blocked by Sahil Panwar and the danger is averted.

SECOND HALF IS UNDERWAY.

Half-time: So, for all of Jamshedpur FC's dominance, the two teams go into half-time level, thanks to Marcelinho's brilliant equalising goal on the stroke of half-time. Farukh Choudhary gave Jamshedpur FC the lead in the 34th minute, lashing home the ball after Kamaljit Singh had saved a fierce hit from Piti.

45+2' GOAL! Jamshedpur FC 1-1 Hyderabad FC. Marcelinho pulls Hyderabad FC level with a piece of individual brilliance. It's a quickly-taken free-kick after a foul on Adil Khan. Marcelinho receives it near the touchline on the right flank, drives towards goal, befuddles Keegan Pereira with a couple of stepovers and gets enough power with his right-footed hit to sneak the ball at Subrata Paul's near post (the ball deflected in off the goalkeeper's left wrist).

37' Piti fires wide from a layoff from Sergio Castel. It was another good chance for Jamshedpur; Castel's weight of pass was spot on, but Piti strikes the ball with his unnatural right foot and it drifts wide, goalkeeper Kamaljit Singh completely untroubled.

34' GOAL! Jamshedpur FC 1-0 Hyderabad FC. Farukh Choudhary, who has been in the thick of the action, puts Jamshedpur FC 1-0 up. Piti with a powerful drive that Kamaljit Singh saved but he couldn't help the ball from dropping onto the path of Farukh, who lashes it onto the roof of the net. It felt like it was a matter of time before Jamshedpur scored, and it takes a timely lead.

29' Farukh Choudhary comes off worse in an aerial duel with Sahil Panwar of Hyderabad FC. Both men go up to win an aerial ball, Sahil catches the back of Farukh's head and he lands awkwardly. Fortunately, he's up on his feet after a bit of medical attention.

21' Sergio Castel's first touch lets him down. Piti is the creator once again; he lobs a pass over the Hyderabad defence and Castel timed his run. But he tries to control the ball with his right boot but it bounces off his ankle and rolls over for a goal kick.

17' CHANCE! Farukh Choudhary heads wide! It was a tough chance but a chance nonetheless. It's a free-kick from Piti from Jamshedpur's left, Memo Moura heads it across the face of goal and Farukh gets up and tries to head it towards the target but Memo's headed cross didn't have the power and Farukh's headed attempt lacked power and direction.

12' YELLOW CARD FOR MARKO STANKOVIC! The Austrian with a sliding challenge from the side, no malicious attempt, catches Aitor Monroy and it was a challenge that you see players getting yellow card for.

9' SAVED! Kamaljit Singh rushes off his line and keeps out Farukh Choudhary, who is in the thick of the action early. He gets on the end of a ball over the Hyderabad FC backline, sets himself up with a good first touch and tries to slot it home with his left instep, but Kamaljit narrows the angles and saves the effort with his left foot. He was down on the ground after making the save and required some medical attention.

6' Marcelo Pereira's free-kick is wide! Aitor Monroy's hand ball resulted in the free-kick which was from a good angle for a left-footer and from about 22 yards out, but Pereira neither got the power nor the direction right with his effort.

2' Possession changing quickly in the early moments. Farukh Choudhary receives a cross-field ball from Jamshedpur's left and looks to take on the Hyderabad full-back, Sahil Panwar. He looks to get into a foot race but is ultimately unsuccessful as the defender gets between ball and attacker to see the ball roll over for a goal-kick.

1' Hyderabad FC gets the match underway, playing from right to left.

The players walk out onto the pitch as the pyrotechnics go off, and the kick-off is not far away. A good crowd has gathered at the JRD Tata Sports Complex and we are ready for the Indian national anthem. The national anthem is over and the two teams pose for a photo. Hyderabad FC in the bright yellow strip, with Jamshedpur in its red strip.

Preview

Antonio Iriondo's Jamshedpur FC takes on Phil Brown's Hyderabad FC following a 2-1 victory over Odisha FC in its opening match of the sixth edition of Indian Super League. Hyderabad, which is one of the two new ISL clubs this season, began its campaign with a 5-0 defeat at the hands of ATK, and this is its second straight away fixture.

Jamshedpur will take plenty of positives from its win over Odisha, none more significant than securing all three points despite playing with 10 men for more than 50 minutes. On the eve of the match against Hyderabad, manager Iriondo said, “We are happy about the result, but we want to play better. At this point, we still have to improve. We didn’t have the ball control then, but we had control of the match.”

Hyderabad manager Brown spoke about the mindset of his players after a heavy defeat against ATK. “We had some knocks after the first match. We were beaten 5-0 and it is not easy for the players when they go back home. It affects the mentality of the players. But we picked ourselves well, the group is okay,” he said.
