Kedah FA vs Wofoo Tai Po match information

Time: 21:00 (GMT+8) on January 21st

Venue: Stadium Darul Aman

Competition: 2020 AFC Champions League

After obtaining the AFC Club License last year, Kedah FA is eligible to play either AFC Champions League or AFC Cup if qualified on merit.

Consequently, they had a chance to compete at the second preliminary round of the 2020 AFC Champions League as the champion of the Malaysia FA Cup. Their opponent will be the Hong Kong Premier League Champion Wofoo Tai Po.

Unlike the Malaysian contender, Wofoo Tai Po is competing in the national league, however, their current form is terrible.

At the moment, Wofoo Tai Po is sinking at the sixth place of the 2019/20 season of the Hong Kong Premier League, winning just 2 games in nine matches while losing four times.

Kedah FA vs Wofoo Tai Po: Advantage belongs to the Malaysian club

Before fighting against Kedah FA in the AFC Champions League, Wofoo Tai Po recently lost Southern District RSA by a 2-4 score despite playing at their home venue.

As a result, the chance for Wofoo Tai Po to beat Kedah FA is very small, especially when the Malaysian club has the advantage to play at Stadium Darul Aman.

Beating Wofoo Tai Po will help them gain more confidence to play against FC Seoul at the play-off round, which is a very difficult task for the Malaysian club.

Kedah FA vs Wofoo Tai Po potential lineups:

Kedah FA: Azri Ghani, Norfiqrie Talib, Shakir Hamzah, Khairul Helmi, Alif Yusof, David Rowley, Baddrol Bakhtiar, Shakir Hamzah, Renan Alves, Kpah Sherman, Kipre Tchetche.

Wofoo Tai Po: Alex Chin, Benjamin Van Meurs, Lew Wai Yip, Kim Seung Yong, Philip To, Eugene Mbome, Yuto Nakamura, Dudu, Leung Sing Yiu, Kim Min Ki, Michel Lugo.
