Going on a bit of a tangent, but this is what really irked me about Max's debut appearance, where he keeps rubbing it in Ash's face that he lost the Johto League, when all but one Trainer in the whole tournament also did.
Since this is the episode where this season's Masters Eight will be set in stone, I wonder if the end of the episode will contain a reveal regarding who those eight Trainers are. I wouldn't be surprised, and would actually very much like that kind of reveal.
I believe the preview said that this Promotion Match will be the last one in the season. Which basically means that after this match, the Masters Eight will not change until the end of the series. So yeah. Seems very likely Ash will win, if this translation I've heard is correct.
