Durakovic Eyes Winning Start For Selangor In AFC Cup Competition
He said the win against the Indonesian side would be a major boost for the 'Red Giants' after a dismal run lately, including a 1-4 defeat to Johor Darul Ta'zim in the Super League at the Larkin Stadium on Feb 15.
"All the players are fit and ready to play tomorrow's match...We're confident. The condition of the pitch is very good and I expect a better game from both teams," he told a press conference here today.
Durakovic, 48, did not rule out making several changes in the team formation for tomorrow's match as he had asked his players not to underestimate their opponents' capability.
Arema Indonesia coach Harno Suharno meanwhile, was modest in his expectation, claiming he would be satisfied with a point from the match although his team had achieved five consecutive wins in the Indonesian Super League (ISL).
"Selangor is a very prominent team in Malaysia, so we can expect a good match...Selangor import player Andik Vermansah from Indonesia is also a very good player," he said.
In another Group F match tomorrow, Vietnam's Hanoi T & T will face Maziya Sports and Recreation Club from the Maldives at the Hang Day Stadium in Hanoi.
