Cheng Hoe wary of tricky home Indonesia fixture

When Malaysia started the qualifying campaign away to Indonesia in Jakarta, not many would put Harimau Malaya as the favourites to win that match even though they eventually won that 3-2. In the subsequent matches against United Arab Emirates, Vietnam and Thailand; Tan Cheng Hoe's team were also considered the underdogs.

But after beating Thailand 2-1 on Thursday and going up against an Indonesian side that has lost four straight matches in the group, the situation has completely swung around with Malaysia now the red-hot favourites to win Tuesday's clash at Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
