Hugo Boumous and Ferran Corominas scored a brace as FC Goa thrashed Hyderabad 4-1 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium on Wednesday.

Interim coach Clifford Miranda, who took over from Sergio Lobera, made no alterations to the side that started in the 4-2 win over Odisha FC a week ago.

Hyderabad interim coach Javier Gurri made one change to bring in Nestor Gordillo in place of Giles Barnes after their defeat to Bengaluru FC.

Ferran Corominas was denied from close range by former FC Goa goalkeeper Laxmikant Kattimani in the seventh minute after Jackichand Singh whipped in a cross from the right. Minutes later, Marcelinho hit the side-netting of Goa's goal.

Boumous latched on to a mistimed shot by Mandar Rao Dessai in the box in the 19th minute to give Goa the breakthrough and almost immediately, Marcelinho struck the post off a Marko Stankovic flag-kick.

In the 31st minute, Adil Khan played a suicidal pass in his own half and Lenny Rodrigues charged in to intercept the same but his shot came off the outside the left post.

Five minutes into the second half, Boumous skipped past several Hyderabad players from the left flank and blasted a right-footer into the back of Kattimani's net.

Ahmed Jahouh was guilty of bringing down Marcelinho 25 yards out and it allowed Hyderabad to pull one back in the 64th minute through a cracker of a free-kick taken by the Brazilian.

A few minutes later, Goa restored their two-goal lead when Boumous picked out Corominas with a peach of a through-ball and the latter converted in the 68th minute. After Goa's third goal, Hyderabad was at sixes and sevens at the back. 

Kattimani added to the humiliation by conceding a penalty after he brought down Corominas in the box. The Spaniard had failed to dispatch a cross by substitute Manvir Singh from the right but stepped up to convert from the spot.
