KBFC vs HYD Dream11 Prediction: The two most languid sides face off against each other today.
They have played the 20 encounters in between them and with just the solitary win apiece to their name, for both of our opponents, the ongoing edition of the Indian Super League is all but over. Slumped in the last two positions, Kerala Blasters and Hyderabad have endured a horrendous outing, one they’ll be looking to infuse some life into when they take on each other today.
Winless after their league opener, for Kerala Blasters, nothing has gone right after their first match of the ongoing edition. The side have managed to muster up a horrendous two wins in their home stadium in the past two seasons, a figure which they’ll be looking to set straight come today’s tie.
Elsewhere, defeated 2-1 by Mumbai City the last time around, Mumbai furthered their win-less spree to seven encounters. What has been the biggest plight for the side is their inability to register a clean sheet with the side having failed to have kept a single shut down in the 10 matches they have stepped out in to find themselves in last spot with a sorry 5 points.
“I think it will be a good game of football where the better tactician will win the game. We have to address the issue of keeping clean sheets first. It's not necessary how much ball possession you have or how many chances you create but the scoreline matters at the end of the day,” said Hyderabad’s manager Phil Brown preceding the tie.
KBFC vs HYD Dream11 Prediction
An encounter between the two most horrendous sides this season, this will be a tie where either side will spare no expense in a bid to amass the full points. What does give Kerala Blasters the advantage in this one is the horrid identity of Hyderabad’s defence, one which should see Kerala Blasters just about squirm their way through to a win on the day.
Mario Arques and Raju Gaikwad are both set to sit this one out for Kerala Blasters with the players continuing their recovery from their injuries.

Strikers for KBFC vs HYD Dream11
His side’s top scorer with the four goals to his name, Bartholomew Ogbeche was always going to be a instant pick for us for this upcoming encounter.
