MYANMAR VS PHILIPPINES PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Losing weakly to both Singapore and Thailand and only having a 2-0 victory over East Timor, Myanmar is increasingly lagging behind the level of Southeast Asia. The task of defeating the Philippines seems a bit far-fetched because even in the past, they also lost more than they won. The defense can be said to be bad, the last 8 matches only had 1 clean sheet but had to receive 35 goals. The gameplay is somewhat immature, but the more Myanmar falls into the chase for the score, their last 7/8 matches have 3 or more goals. It wouldn’t be surprising if the upcoming match ended up with the same scenario.

The game is rich in dedication, after 3 matches the Philippines scored 9 goals but also conceded 4 times, including an extremely impressive 7-0 victory over East Timo.
