If we take a look at the recent performances of both teams in the tournament, Pakistan has a slight better chance of winning this match then Malaysia. Also Pakistan lost its last match from Korea with just the margin of one goal (3-4) but Malaysia has lost from Germany from 6-0 goals in front of their home crowd, so clearly Pakistani team will be more confident than Malaysia.
