The Red Warriors are going into the match with good form as they recently beat Malaysian Super League leaders ATM 3-2 in Paroi.

Bojan Hodak has already informed the public that both Dimitri Petratos and Dickson Nwakaemi will play in this match as they require their services to stop the V-League Champions. Kelantan will once again rely on their influential skipper Badhri Radzi to contain the visitor's midfield.

Khairul Fahmi Che Mat is set to continue in goal, he was one of the best players in the first half against ATM, while Norfarhan may also be rewarded with a start after scoring the winning goal against ATM.

For SHB Da Nang FC, their two important players Huynh Quoc Anh and Pham Nguyen will not be travelling to Malaysia as both of them will be rested after playing through a congested fixture list.

Other than that, all their other senior players will travel to Malaysia. Their team consists of several Vietnam international players and they will look to seal their place at the top of their group with two wins out of two.
