Fourth-placed Hyderabad FC (HFC) will take on table-topper ATK Mohun Bagan (ATKMB) in a crucial match of the 2020-21 Indian Super League (ISL) at the Tilak Maidan in Vasco da Gama on Monday.

A win for HFC in its upcoming match will take it above FC Goa into third in the ISL standings. Meanwhile, a loss could hamper its chances of making the playoffs. The Nizams are coming on the back of a 4-0 win over Kerala Blasters in the previous game.
