In a draw released just after the completion of group matches, the world No. 9 were unlucky to be drawn against world No. 1 and top seeds Marcus Fernaldi-Kevin Sanjaya of Indonesia in the quarter-finals, which will be held on Thursday.
Aaron-Wooi Yik have never beaten the Indonesian superstars in all their previous seven meetings.
If they pull off a shocking win over the Indonesians, they will most probably face 2018 world champions Li Junhui-Liu Yuchen of China in the last four.
Based on their impressive group stage performance, Junhui-Yuchen should have the edge over their quarter-final opponents Kim Astrup-Anders Rasmussen of Denmark.
"It's tough on paper but we will be mentally and physically prepared," said Aaron.
"Among all the top eight pairs in the quarter-finals, we are the underdogs.
"The pressure is more on them than us...we'll give it our best. We won't be putting too much pressure on ourselves.
In the bottom half, Taiwan's Lee Yang-Wang Chi-lin will take on Hiroyuki Endo-Yuta Watanabe of Japan while another Japan pair Takeshi Kamura-Keigo Sonoda will go up against Hendra Setiawan-Mohammad Ahsan of Indonesia.
