Malaysia vs Indonesia Prediction

Malaysia were able to put an end to their dismal two-game losing streak last week after they came back from behind to post a 2-1 victory against Thailand at home. With no more than two wins from four games, Tan Cheng Hoe’s men are currently sitting fourth in the cluster, one point behind second-placed Thailand.

The hosts have just one win to boast on home soil so far. Nevertheless, Malaysia have every reason to have their hopes up in this one. Their counterparts for the week have been branded as the worst team in Group G. Indonesia have lost all of their clashes hitherto, the most recent of which, was a 3-1 defeat against table-toppers Vietnam, that too in front of the home crowd.

The visiting contingent have hardly been a threat on the road as well. Their only away clash, which was against United Arab Emirates, witnessed the latter run riot and record a whopping 5-0 scorecard. To pile on even more misery, Indonesia have been at the losing end in their previous two visits here in a running.

Taking into account the home side’s convincing victory in their last match at this venue, the tag of favorites to secure all three points certainly goes to Malaysia in this particular clash. Furthermore, the away side been have reduced to a mere punching bag by their fellow group members.

Simon Mcmenemy’s side have now lost by a two-goal margin or more in their last three games and have conceded eleven goals from those matchups alone. As such, count on Malaysia to have their scoring boots on, and to be keen on racking up the goals tally.
