Kelantan will face Perak in the Malaysian Super League today. Football analysis experts have made their predictions on the match result and provided information on the score prediction.
Analysis of Kelantan vs Perak football match
A decade ago, Kelantan was a major force in Malaysian football, winning the championship twice in 2011 and 2012. However, the team has experienced many ups and downs since then, often being relegated to lower leagues. This season, they were fortunate to return to the Super League as many other teams failed to meet the requirements set by the organizers.
In this comeback, Kelantan had a very poor start with 7 losses, 1 draw, and 1 win in 9 matches, ranking near the bottom of the table. It is hard to accept the team's performance as they have lost 4 consecutive matches recently, conceding 18 goals.
Perak FC is an established football club in Malaysia with over 100 years of history and has won the championship twice (2002 and 2003). They were relegated in 2021 and have just returned to the league this season to replace some teams that failed to meet the operational requirements set by the organizers.
However, perhaps Perak is still not ready for the tournament. After 9 rounds, they won 1, drew 3, and lost 5 matches, temporarily ranking 11th out of 14 teams. Their only win was against another newly-promoted team, Kuching.
Regarding this match, we see that both teams have similar poor performance. But if we have to choose one team to place our trust, Perak is perhaps the more suitable name as they have just held a stronger opponent, Negeri Sembilan, to a draw away while Kelantan has just suffered a series of embarrassing defeats.
Total goals of Kelantan vs Perak match
Both teams are in the bottom group and need a win to move up. Facing opponents with similar strength, it is likely that both teams will play slowly, cautiously, and try to make the most of rare opportunities created. Therefore, there may not be many goals in the match.
Prediction: Under 2 1/2 goals
Kelantan vs Perak: 1 - 1\
