Vasco (Goa): Hyderabad FC, enjoying an unexpectedly good start to the Hero Indian Super League Season 7, will hope to keep their unbeaten run going when they take on table-toppers Mumbai City FC at the Tilak Maidan Stadium on Sunday.

Manolo Marquez's men bounced back from a run of three straight draws when they downed SC East Bengal in their previous game. But they will have their task cut out against a Mumbai side that will be looking to put a disappointing 1-1 draw against Jamshedpur FC behind them. That is not something that's lost on Marquez.

"Mumbai City, in my opinion, are the favourites to win the regular season," Marquez said. "They've got a very good team with a lot of quality and a top coach. They play good football, are good in the high press, good in set-pieces. For me, they are one of the more difficult games that we will play."

As tough as the challenge may be, Marquez knows he has enough firepower to come back with all three points. He will no doubt be buoyed by the form of Aridane Santana, who has netted four times in the league already. "Of course, we will have possibilities to win the game. We can win or lose with all the teams and it depends on our performance.

We've prepared for the game in the same way we've prepared for other games. Of course, we have looked at videos of the opponent. They are a team that wants to keep the ball, the same as our team. We have to be prepared to defend very well," Marquez added.
