Desmond Bulpin's Boys will be favourite for the away tie, when India takes on Myanmar at Youth Training Centre, Yangoon on Wednesday in the Pre-Olympic qualifier return leg.

India made a successful start in the pre-Olympic qualifier with a 2-1 victory at home and will look to advance in the next stage with another impressive win over the hosts tomorrow.

The only concern for the India will be Robin Singh, as the East Bengal striker is suffering from a hamstring injury, while the rest of the players are available for the selection.

"It will be a tough game, but we are all prepared,'' said the Indian coach, Besmond Bulpin in pre-match conference held earlier today. "Myanmar is also a good team and with local support, they will look to take advantage of the home condition. A good game is on the cards," added the Englishman

The match will kick off at IST 1500 hrs (1600 hrs local time).
