Here are the key talking points from the Kerala Blasters FC vs Hyderabad FC ISL 2020-21 clash:
Blasters’ all-Indian defence keeps clean sheet
Kibu Vicuna made a bold move ahead of kick-off by replacing his foreign defensive duo of Bakary Kone and Costa Nhamoinesu with the inexperienced Abdul Hakku and Sandeep Singh. And the move did wonders as not only did the defence ensure it kept a second clean-sheet of the season, Hakku also scored his maiden ISL goal.
