Hyderabad FC reclaimed the top spot in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) standings with a dominating 4-0 win over SC East Bengal at the Tilak Maidan Stadium, here today.
Bartholomew Ogbeche (21’, 44’, 74’) scored a sensational hattrick to extend his lead in the goalscoring charts. Aniket Jadhav (45+1’) also got on the scoresheet for the Nizams. The result takes them to the top of the table with 20 points, ahead of Kerala Blasters FC on goal difference.
Joao Victor tested Arindam Bhattacharja from a free-kick early into the game following a strong start by the Nizams. The goalkeeper was called into action a few more times later after having to make saves from Sauvik Chakrabarti and Aniket Jadhav. However, the custodian could not keep the ball out for long as Bartholomew Ogbeche’s header escaped his grip and landed inside the net for the first goal.
SC East Bengal gave a better account of themselves after the drinks break in the first half. They almost scored the equaliser but a save from Laxmikant Kattimani and a goal-line clearance from Joao kept the lead intact. At the stroke of the 41st minute, HFC doubled the lead after a comedy of errors by SCEB defence allowed Ogbeche to weave past the goalkeeper and score with ease.
Aniket Jadhav then added more misery by scoring the third after a couple of minutes. His low shot from the left flank found the bottom-right corner and the Nizams went into the halftime break with a three-goal advantage.
Marcelo Ribeiro made his debut from the bench in the second half as the Red & Gold Brigade tried to find a breakthrough. However, it was HFC that scored the fourth as Ogbeche finally got his first hattrick of the season at the stroke of the 75th minute. Javier Siverio’s shot deflected into the Nigerian’s path who made no mistake in slotting the shot into the back of the net.
SCEB had a penalty awarded after Ribeiro was tripped inside the box but the spot-kick was saved well by Kattimani who correctly guessed Franjo Prce’s attempt. The Nizams kept their clean sheet intact for the remainder of the match and secured important three points.
Hyderabad FC face Odisha FC in their next fixture at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Thursday while SC East Bengal awaits a stern test of ATK Mohun Bagan in the Kolkata Derby at the PJN Stadium on Saturday.

Chennaiyin FC's aspirations of breaking into the top-four went up in smoke as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Hyderabad FC in a tense Hero Indian Super League game that ended in a 1-1 stalemate at the PJN Stadium in Fatorda on Thursday.
Chennaiyin went ahead through Mohd Sajid Dhot in the 13th minute but could not hold on to their slender lead till halftime as Javier Siverio (45th) continued his scoring spree with a goal on the cusp of halftime. There were no goals in the second period as Debjit Majumder made a string of saves in Chennaiyin goal and the home side put pressure in six minutes of added time for the winner but in the end, it ended all square. Hyderabad missed talisman Bartholomew Ogbeche, lacking teeth upfront as the league's top-scorer served his suspension after picking up four yellow cards.
The result means Hyderabad moved third in the table with 17 points from 11 games while Chennaiyin remained sixth having 15 points from 11 matches. Chennaiyin nosed ahead early through an unlikely source when young defender Mohd Sajid Dhot headed in Anirudh Thapa's inch-perfect free-kick leaving Laxmikant Kattimani with no chance.
Stung by the early goal, Hyderabad got their act together and started bossing possession, also creating chances in the final third. The industry paid off just before halftime as Siverio atoned for his miss just a minute before with a calm and composed finish after Asish Rai sent in a delightful cross inside the box for Siviero to leap highest and head the ball in past Debjit Majumder.
Just after the restart, Debjit was forced into making two crucial saves to deny Siverio and Edu Garcia. Both teams made a flurry of chances to get that goal but clear-cut chances were few and far between before Ninthoinganba Meetel's thunderbolt of a shot ricocheted off the bar and his rebound was a meek one.
Chennaiyin upped the ante in the latter stages of the second half with the introduction of Rahim Ali injecting pace. But in the end, Hyderabad held firm to eke out a point.

Kerala Blasters brought Hyderabad FC's unbeaten run to an end and jumped to the top of the table with a 1-0 win in the Indian Super League at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday.
Alvaro Vazquez (42nd) scored a first-half goal which eventually proved to be the winner as Kerala stretched their unbeaten streak to nine games, moving to the top of the points table with a better goal difference than Mumbai City FC, both being on 17 points from 10 games. This was the first time they went top of the Hero ISL table, for the first time since the last seven years.
Hyderabad, on the other hand, saw their eight-game unbeaten run come to an end as they dropped to the third in the table having 16 points from 10 matches.
Hyderabad had a chance to take the lead early on when Edu Garcia's free-kick was deflected onto the crossbar by Prabhsukhan Gill after the ball was curled expertly over the wall. Bartholomew Ogbeche was shown his fourth yellow card in the next minute, meaning he will miss the next match.
Kattimani pulled off a brilliant save in the 24th minute to deny Jorge Diaz as Kerala kept knocking on the door. As the match progressed, both teams tried to carve open a clear-cut chance before Vazquez helped the yellow shirts nose ahead. A long throw-in was met by Sahal Abdul Samad who flicked it behind in the danger area where Vazquez struck a sweet volley to beat the keeper all ends up.
Hyderabad came close through Ogbeche on the cusp of halftime but the Nigerian shot wide. In the second period, Hyderabad tried to up the ante but failed to muster any real opportunity in front of goal barring one where Kerala skipper Jessel Carneiro kept his side in the lead with a goalline clearance.

David Williams scored the fastest goal in the Hero Indian Super League's history but Javier Siverio's late strike ensured Hyderabad FC moved to the top of the table riding a 2-2 draw against ATK Mohun Bagan in a rip-roaring encounter at the PJN Stadium in Fatorda on Wednesday.
Williams, playing ahead of Roy Krishna who started on the bench, took just 12 seconds to score before Bartholomew Ogbeche continued his goalscoring spree with an equaliser in the 18th minute. An own goal from Asish Rai (64th) almost poured cold water on Hyderabad's hopes of going top of the tree before substitute Siverio flicked a loopy ball inside the box into the goal.
Hyderabad edged past Mumbai City FC on goal difference. Both teams have 16 points from nine games. ATK Mohun Bagan moved to the third spot with 15 points from nine outings.
ATKMB raced a 1-0 lead inside the first minute, Williams racking up his record goal with a powerful strike from outside the box that went in kissing Hyderabad keeper Laxmikant Kattimani's gloves after Hugo Boumous set him up. The experienced Kattimani could have done better but at the other end, Amrinder Singh committed an even worse blunder in the 18th minute when he failed to hold on to a simple catch and the ball fell to Ogbeche.
The Nigerian in-form striker made no mistake, slamming the ball into an open net to net his ninth goal of the campaign. Amrinder was at fault once again as he passed the ball to Ogbeche where he should be cleared but the Hyderabad marksman could not make the most of it.
ATKMB suffered a setback when Carl McHugh had to be replaced just on the cusp of halftime after the Irish midfielder suffered a concussion and had to be taken off the field in an ambulance. Before halftime, Boumous picked up his fourth yellow card meaning he will miss the next game.
The second half saw Hyderabad put up a solid defensive display until Williams dribbled past Akash Mishra and crossed for Joni Kauko who nodded in expertly at the far post off a slight deflection from Asish Rai. The goal was adjudged as an own goal by Rai.
Having taken the lead for the second time in the game, the Mariners kept pushing for that insurance goal as Liston Colaco came close to scoring from a crisp Williams reverse pass. Juan Ferrando added teeth upfront with the introduction of Roy Krishna in the 72nd minute in place of Williams who capped off a superb display.
Just when it looked like ATKMB would scrape through, Siverio made sure Hyderabad went top of the heap with an opportunistic strike.

Bartholomew Ogbeche scored a crackling brace on either side of halftime as Hyderabad FC recorded an emphatic 6-1 win over Odisha FC in the Hero Indian Super League at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Tuesday.
Ogbeche scored in the 39th and 60th minute after Hector Rodas turned one in his own net in the 9th minute to hand Hyderabad an early lead. Edu Garcia (54th), Javier Siverio (72nd) and Joao Victor (86 P) got on the scoresheet for Hyderabad in a mind-blowing second-half display. For Odisha, Juanan scored an own goal in the 16th minute to make it 1-1, but after that, it was one-way traffic till the final whistle.
The result means Hyderabad remain second in the points table with 15 points from eight games while Odisha are seventh in the table having 10 points from eight matches. Ogbeche is now the top-scorer with eight goals to his name.
The game got off to an eventful start as Hyderabad FC went ahead in the ninth minute. Edu Garcia swung in a delightful free-kick at the near post with Joao Victor flicking it on as the ball took a deflection off Hector Rodas and went in. Hyderabad's joy was short-lived as Odisha equalised. It was almost a repeat of Hyderabad's opener as Javier Hernandez's free-kick came off a host of bodies inside the box and squirmed in off Juanan's chest.
Soon after the goal, Odisha had a golden opportunity to go ahead but Jonathas Cristian fluffed his lines from close after Nandhakumar Sekar had whipped in a delectable cross which went past a diving Chinglensana Singh. Odisha turned on the heat with a couple of gilt-edged chances before Ogbeche made it 2-1 with a thumping header from a Edu Garcia cross.
At halftime, Hyderabad led 2-1 but in the second half, they swept Odisha off their feat with a scintillating performance. Edu Garcia started the onslaught with a buccaneering run, getting the better of a defender and firing home into the right bottom corner. At the hour mark, Odisha made it 4-1 riding Ogbeche's second goal on the night as the striker took a deft first touch to then slam home a crisp left-footer past the keeper and into the bottom corner.
Ogbeche was replaced by Javier Siverio in the 68th minute and the latter found the back of the net minutes after coming on, tucking in a Juanan ball into the net. Siverio won a penalty five minutes to full time after Gaurav Bora brought him down inside the box. Joao Victor stepped up and slotted it past the keeper from the spot.

SC East Bengal held Hyderabad FC to a 1-1 draw but could not stop the Nizams from jumping into second place on the points table, in their 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League fixture at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Thursday. Hyderabad extended their unbeaten run to six matches but the Red & Gold Brigade remain winless in eight matches.
Amir Dervisevic (20’) gave SC East Bengal an early lead against the run of play with a brilliant free-kick but Bartholomew Ogbeche (35’) scored with a header to bring the match level.
Joel Chianese was the first to test Arindam Bhattacharja in the 12th minute after a cautious start from both teams. However, it was SC East Bengal that went into the lead thanks to a powerful direct free-kick from outside the box by Amir Dervisevic. The midfielder scored with a left-footed shot that caught Laxmikant Kattimani unawares, who should have done better in saving the attempt. Daniel Chima Chukwu missed a fabulous opportunity to double his team’s lead by sending his shot wide in a one-on-one situation just before the half-hour mark.
Post the drinks break, Hyderabad FC turned up the intensity and scored through Bartholomew Ogbeche. A pinpoint cross from the left flank by Aniket Jadhav found Ogbeche’s head who easily directed the ball past the goalkeeper. Minutes after the equaliser, Mohammad Rafique then blasted the ball against the crossbar with a powerful shot from outside the box after latching on to a layoff by Chukwu. Both teams went into the break on equal terms.
Manolo Marquez sent Sahil Tavora in Rohit Danu’s place as a halftime substitution. The second half saw both teams cancel each other out and both tacticians made personnel changes to change the complexion of the game. Raju Gaikwad was one of the players to make way who suffered a blow to the head earlier in the match.
At the 85th minute mark, Sahil Tavora attempted a long-range attempt which made Arindam parry the shot away. The rebound from Siverio went wayward, to the goalkeeper’s relief. The fourth official indicated seven minutes of added time for stoppages during the game. Naorem Singh and Juanan got a yellow card each in the late stages of the match. Despite throwing everything in their locker at the opposition, neither side could find the winner and the game ended on even terms.

Hyderabad FC zoomed to second on the points table with a commanding 5-1 win over NorthEast United FC in a Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 fixture at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Monday.
Chinglensana Singh (12') opened the scoring while a brace from Bartholomew Ogbeche (27', 78') sunk one of his former clubs. Substitutes Aniket Jadhav (90') and Javier Siverio (90+3') joined the party late. Laldanmawia Ralte (43'), a Hyderabad FC player himself until this summer, scored for the Highlanders.
A fit-again Edu Garcia's inclusion in the starting XI for the first time since the first game week proved to be an inspired move. A freekick in the 10th minute sailed over the bar but another set-piece moments later did the trick.
Chinglensana Singh scored his first ISL goal courtesy Garcia's freekick that hit the upright initially. Goalkeeper Subhasish Roy Chowdhury was caught ball-watching and defenders out of position when the Manipur-born defender slotted home from the rebound.
With the deadlock broken, Hyderabad egged on for a second. An unmarked Ogbeche missed the easiest of chances after build-up play from the right flank was fed off by an Ashis Rai cross. The Nigerian made amends immediately. Garcia was in the thick of things again as he lobbed the ball into space for Ogbeche who ran past the defenders to collect it and smash the ball into the net with his left foot.
Danmawia had no qualms in punishing his former side as he turned fox in the box. It was Tondonba's long throw-in that resulted in a goal-mouth melee. Suhair's shot was blocked but not cleared and NorthEast had the Mizo winger half the deficit. NorthEast shortly looked enterprising after the change of ends. Substitute Lalkhawpuimawia attempted an ambitious bicycle kick and Danmawia's header from Joe Zoherliana's cross went over.
Marquez made a host of changes bringing in fresh legs but it was an almost solo effort from Ogbeche to seal the third as he left Santana for dead, swiveled, and blazed a shot from range that the keeper had no chance to deal with it. Siverio first assisted and then scored in the dying embers of the game as Aniket Jadhav, another introduction from the bench, too got his first goal for the club.

Bengaluru FC were left hapless as Hyderabad FC rode on Bartholomew Ogbeche's first-half strike to down the Blues 1-0 in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Wednesday.
Ogbeche found the back of the net in the 7th minute as his side dominated proceedings from the off to leave Bengaluru at ninth position with four points from five matches.Hyderabad jumped to third place courtesy the victory with seven points from four games.
The hosts started on the front foot and went ahead as soon as the seventh minute. Akash Mishra found Ogbeche after darting past a few white and blue shirts. The Nigerian then fired home from the edge of the box as the ball took a slight deflection to nestle in the back of the net past a diving Gurpreet Singh Sandhu.
Mishra looked in fine form as he teed up Ogbeche once again in the 17th minute but Gurpreet was off his line early to avert the danger. At the half-hour mark, Hyderabad had another chance to double their lead when Ogbeche dinked a fine ball for Javier Siverio but the latter agonisingly shot over the bar. Bengaluru conjured up a chance two minutes before halftime when Cleiton Silva whipped in a free-kick for Chhetri but the club captain glanced his header over.
Bengaluru upped the ante after the break with Cleiton at the centre of it. The 34-year old Brazilian found the target in the 56th minute but his shot lack power and was straight at Laxmikant Kattimani in the Hyderabad goal.
At the hour mark, Silva came closer when his attempt flew inches over the bar after substitute Danish Farooq set him up. Two minutes later, Silva was in the thick of things again. This time Farooq headed the ball down for Silva to take a swipe but the former Shanghai Shenxin footballer shot straight at the keeper again.
Chinglensana Singh almost gifted Bengaluru an equaliser when his botched clearance went just over the crossbar.

In a gripping game of two halves, Jamshedpur FC were held by Hyderabad FC in a 1-1 draw in the 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Thursday.
Greg Stewart (41') scored a goal of the highest order for the Red Miners while Bartholomew Ogbeche (56') equalised in the second half. Both sides failed to enter into the top four spots as Jamshedpur with 5 points are placed 5th as Hyderabad follow with 4 points.
Eli Sabia was handed the Jamshedpur FC armband for the first time as regular captain Peter Hartley started from the bench. Manolo Marquez fielded the same XI that won against Mumbai City over the weekend.
The first half could almost be dubbed as the Greg Stewart-show. While he would have just the single goal to show for it, the Scot kept Hyderabad defenders guessing every time he went near the box.
In the 20th minute, had the ball gone in, it could have easily been a contender for the goal of the tournament. Stewart picked up the ball from midfield off Hitesh Sharma, sprinted all the way into the box and left Juanan for dead, only to be denied by the upright.
Earlier, Juanan had a chance himself when his header went astray. Valskis too had a sniff but played second fiddle to Stewart, who found his first ISL goal a few minutes before the break.
A quick throw-in from the left saw Stewart receive the ball and cut past four defenders into the box. The former Rangers man awe-inspiringly then spewed in a curer that nestled into the top far corner of the goal.
Change of ends, it took only ten-odd minutes for the Nizams to draw level. Smart build-up play at the edge of the box and Ogbeche finished it off towards the bottom-right corner after a brilliant one-two with captain Joao Victor.
There was some gritty football on display as both teams pressed hard for the lead. Valskis, in the few chances he got remained profligate while Rehenesh's steely resolve under the post kept Hyderabad frustrated.

Reigning champions Mumbai City FC were dealt their first defeat of the season by Hyderabad FC in their Hero Indian Super League (ISL) match at the PJN Stadium in Fatorda, Goa on Saturday. The Nizams came away 3-1 winners on the night with a brilliant comeback victory against the Islanders who scored early into the game.
Ahmed Jahouh (6’) opened the scoring with a thumping right-footed finish after the HFC players failed to clear their lines inside the penalty area. Joao Victor (13’) brought the game level by converting a penalty with calmness. HFC went into the lead with Bartholomew Ogbeche (53’) scoring his first goal of the season against his former team. 19-year old Rohit Danu (82’) sealed victory by scoring the third goal for his team.
Mumbai City FC made one change to their starting lineup as Mohammad Rakip came in for the injured Vignesh Dakshinamurthy. On the other hand, Hyderabad FC made two changes to the team by bringing in Joel Chianese and Aniket Jadhav, while Edu Garcia and injured Halicharan Narzary lost their place in the starting lineup.
The Islanders started all guns blazing with Jahouh scoring from the first shot on target thanks to some shoddy defending from the opposition. However, the Nizams came right back into the game after Bipin Singh fouled Joel Chianese inside the penalty area.
Skipper Joao Victor made no mistake with the penalty and rifled it in the back of the net despite Nawaz correctly guessing the ball. The custodian made an important save from Asish Rai a few minutes later to prevent HFC from going into the lead. Rahul Bheke had a great chance to score in the 27th minute but his attempt from close-range went wayward. Teams went into the halftime break on level terms.
Hitesh Sharma was the first player to be booked after committing a foul on Apuia post the restart. Chinglensana Singh also picked up a yellow shortly after. Bartholomew Ogbeche then scored HFC’s second goal from close range after a brilliant build-up play from the side, eight minutes into the second half. Jahouh also received a caution for a poor challenge minutes later.
In a series of changes by both camps, Des Buckingham sent Ygor Catatu from the bench who replaced Cassio Gabriel on the hour mark. Following suit, Manolo Marquez changed Rohit Danu for debutant Aniket Jadhav and Edu Garcia for Chianese. Rowlin Borges also came on by replacing Raynier Fernandes and almost scored the equaliser in the 78th minute.
Rohit Danu then scored HFC’s third with a powerful close-range right-footed shot after pouncing on a second ball. This was Danu’s first goal in the Hero ISL and he repaid the faith shown in him by the gaffer. Catatau was shown a yellow card for a high-boot late into the contest after frustration had set in.
HFC held a good shape for the remainder of the game and secured their first win of the season. Interestingly, this was also their first-ever victory over MCFC.
Mumbai City FC will next face ATK Mohun Bagan on Wednesday while Hyderabad FC is up against Jamshedpur FC on Thursday.

In a game of determination to last the longest, Chennaiyin FC pulled off a hard fought 1-0 win over Hyderabad FC, here in a 2021-22 Hero Indian Super League (ISL) match at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim on Tuesday. Vlagyimir Koman (66' P) scored from the spot to give Chennaiyin a crucial lead, ultimately sealing all three points as Hyderabad were left to rue their wastefulness in front of goal, especially in the first half.
Hyderabad, whose average age of its Indian players in the lineup was just 24, was dealt a major blow early on with Halicharan Narzary limping off in under 10 minutes. That did not deter their resolve to stamp their impression as former ATK Mohun Bagan man Edu Garcia's shot was cleared away in a hurry but Bartholomew Ogbeche could not follow through.
Chennaiyin had goalkeeper Vishal Kaith to thank for keeping the former champions in the game. The Himachal Pradesh-born was tested a few times but he emerged unscathed. Hyderabad were in fact wasteful in the opportunities the brittle Chennaiyin defence gave them. Ogbeche missed more than handy chances but substitute Nikhil Poojary's work-rate near the box only gained him new admirers.
Kyrgyz playmaker Mirlan Murzaev almost gave Chennaiyin a glimmer of hope late in the first half, but his header went off-target from a darting cross in by Reagan Singh. Chennaiyin carried over the momentum post the break. Mirlan Murzaev and Lallianzuala Chhangte proved hard to contain. Chhangte arguably had the best chance of the night when he beat Akash Mishra on the run, cut in and shot hard, only to be tipped off by Kaith.
New captain Anirudh Thapa then made it count for his side winning a penalty as he was brought down by Hitesh Sharma inside the box. Former AS Monaco man Vlagyimir Koman stepped up to deliver a powerful piledriver that gave goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani no chance, breaking the deadlock with little over 20 minutes to play.
Chennaiyin led against the run of play leaving Manolo Marquez to make four changes at a go. Joel Chianese, Javi Siverio, Sahil Tavora and young striker Rohit Danu were introduced in the 77th minute. However, there wasn't to be another goal as Hyderabad will look for answers ahead of their big game against defending champions Mumbai City next.
