ISL 2020-21 Hyderabad FC vs Kerala Blasters FC: Head to head Stats; Probable Playing XI; Match Details HFC vs KBFC Live Streaming online- All but out of the playoff race, Kerala Blasters have had another disappointing season. New coach, Kibu Vicuna could not change the club’s fortunes. With 16 points from 17 matches, Blasters are placed 10th ahead of Odisha FC. The hope of a playoff spot is faint and almost an impossible task. They not only have to win their last three games but also have to hope that other matches go their way. But Vicuna’s side will fight on with a win against fifth-placed Hyderabad FC at Tilak Maidan Stadium in Goa on Tuesday.

For Hyderabad, the aim is simple — win next three and have a shot at playoff or be condemned to fifth place. Manuel Roca’s side has won five matches and have lost three but nine draws have kept their hopes alive. On Tuesday, though, a loss could end their hopes. So far, they have 24 points 17 matches.
