Kedah will host Kaya FC in AFC Cup group-stage action on Monday.
Both teams will come into this encounter after losing their respective opening games.
Kedah lost 2-0 to Bali United whereas the visitors lost to Visakha by a solitary goal.
Kaya will be in slightly disappointing mood ahead of this tie after losing to Visakha despite dominating their opponents in every aspect of the pitch. They are in much need of points to get back into contention for the next-round qualification.

Kedah vs Kaya Prediction
The visitors will go into this game as the slight favorites given their squad strength and overall club rank. Their only encounter in the past also went the visitors’ way.
The hosts will have a lot to do to avoid finishing bottom of their group. They are by far the weakest team in Group G. They will have a hard time negotiating an almost full-strength Kaya FC.
The visitors will definitely look to get back on track after a disappointing opening day, and we expect to see a victory for Kaya FC.
Prediction: Kedah 1-3 Kaya FC
