I don't understand why Syria is so underrated by the bookies. Maybe because they are playing all the games away from home, but even so they drew with South Korea (-Son) and Iran in Malaysia. This game will be played in Malaysia as well and I think Syria is able to make another good match. They have lost the reverse fixture, but was only 1-0 to Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan can be dangerous going forward with the likes of Server Djeparov, Sardor Rashidov or Igor Sergeev, but in Malaysia, Syria showed they can play decent football against much better opposition like Iran and South Korea. With a bit of luck Syria can finish another game undefeated.
