Malaysia vs Papua New Guinea: Top Free Betting Tips

Malaysia aims to continue their winning streak at Sultan Mizan Zainul Abidin Stadium when they host Papua New Guinea on Tuesday, 20 June. Cuscus come into this game after featuring a draw game against Singapore in Friendlies.

Match Result Prediction: Malaysia to Win

Malaysia has found four victories in the previous five matches, along with a defeat against Thailand in AFF Championship. Papua New Guinea have also won three of the previous five matches. But Malayan Tigers seem confident over the home advantage where they have won all of the last five games. In the two H2Hs of these teams, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea have won once at their respective home venues. Therefore, we set Malayan Tigers as our favourites for this game to achieve the winning result.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

The only H2H meeting between these teams at Sultan Mizan Zainul Abidin Stadium witnessed a total of Over 2.5 Goals. Malaysia has found the back of the net 12 times in the last five games in front of the home crowd. On the other hand, Papua New Guinea has rattled the net eight times in the same duration. Cuscus have also leaked goals in three of the recent four matches. Hence, a total of Over 2.5 Goals will be the most probable result for this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Malaysia

Malaysia scored multiple goals in three of the previous five home games, scoring six goals in just the last two of them. Papua New Guinea has also rattled the net more than once in three of the last five matches. However, Malayan Tigers have looked prepared at the defensive end, conceding only two goals in the previous five games at Sultan Mizan Zainul Abidin Stadium. On the other hand, Cuscus have leaked eight goals in the last four road fixtures. Given these statistics, we predict a 2-1 lead for Malaysia before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
