Home United Scouting Report
The back four is generally physically strong and they use it to their advantage in the aerial duels.
They do not deal well with having too much space in front of them so they adopt a low backline.
Sirina Camara is a standout in this department due to his willingness to overlap and put in early crosses.
Aqhari Abdullah and Ambroise Begue will operate on the flanks when Home attain possession. Regular midfielder Azhar Sairudin was missing through injury while Zulfahmi Arifin was deployed in an advance role as opposed to previous games.
Ken Ilso is the most creative player of the lot and he leads Home attacking line. He tends to pressure defenders into hoofing the ball away.
Areas to exploit
The backline can be rather slow to regroup after Home offence loses the ball so a quick counter might just do the trick. They also leave too much gap between midfield and the defence.
