    Melaka looking to continue good record against Kuala Lumpur

    On Wednesday afternoon, Kuala Lumpur host Melaka United at the KLFA Stadium, as the home side looks to move away from the relegation zone in the Malaysian Super League.

    In truth, Kuala Lumpur have endured a poor campaign so far in the top-flight and currently sit just a point above the relegation zone. A recent poor run of form in the Malaysian top-flight has not helped the home sides chances of moving up the table.

    A 2-1 defeat at Selangor last time out in the league continued a trend of high-scoring games in the top-flight, as six of Kuala Lumpur’s last seven matches in the Super League have produced over 2.5 goals.

    One player that has thrived this season for the home side is experienced Brazilian forward Guilherme, who has scored eight times in just ten appearances. He is now just five goals behind his goal tally for the whole of last season.

    Despite the 32-year-old’s best efforts, his team have picked up just 14 points from their first 16 matches in the Super League.

    The visitors are in a slightly loftier position than the home side, as they are currently fifth in the Super League standings. Despite their relatively high placing in the league, Melaka look unlikely to catch league leaders Darul Takzim, who are 17 points ahead.

    Although the visitors have been hard to beat of late in the Malaysian top-flight, losing just once in seven games, Melaka’s recent league form has been inconsistent.

    One of the reasons for the visitor’s recent inconsistent league form is a poor record on their travels. They have won just once in their last six away games in the Malaysian top-flight.

    One positive for Melaka heading into this clash is that they have won four of their last five meetings between the two teams.

    Forebet predicts that Melaka’s recent good record against the home side will continue, with the visitors recording a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
