SCEB vs HFC – Match Prediction:
The analytics shows that Hyderabad FC has clear supremacy over SC East Bengal. SC East Bengal (SCEB) has a good set of foreigners who bring a decent amount of English league experience, especially with the signing of Anthony Pilkington and Daniel Fox. Head-Coach Robbie Fowler’s presence will be a great motivation for a side that is looking to make an impression on debut. The Indian roster is also quite impressive with a good number of names having national team experience is the strength. But, SCEB-team is a completely new side under a new coach who got little time for a proper assessment of his squad. To boasts a strong squad, the lack of time to get into the groove and find their playing XI might make it tough for the side. If Fowler manages to find his best XI early in the tournament, SCEB have an outside chance of making it to the playoffs
