Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying vs Yuki Kaneko-Misaki Matsutomo: Prediction
Given their recent form, it could be a tough match as both pairs made the first-round exit from last week’s Denmark Open. But in their last match at the French Open, the Malaysian pair looked more fluent than the Japanese shuttlers.
However, Yuki Kaneko and Misaki Matsutomo will start favourite against Peng Soon and Liu Ying. In their last meeting, the Japanese pair got better of the Malaysian duo. But in the final of the All England Open, Yuki Kaneko and Misaki Matsutomo lost to their compatriots Yuta Watanabe and Arisa Higashino 14-21, 13-21.
Prediction: Yuki Kaneko and Misaki Matsutomo to win in 3-games.
