VIETNAM VS THAILAND PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Vietnam deserves to be the number 1 team in the region with 98th place in FIFA, won the AFF Cup 2018 and has just reached the third qualifying round of the World Cup. Golden Dragon easily advanced to the semi-finals after 3 wins and 1 draw, scored 9 goals and did not concede even once. Park Hang Seo’s army showed their tactical superiority, especially in the 3-0 victory over Malaysia. The imprint of Vietnam is still in the national spirit and is also very pragmatic when needed. Even the top Asian teams such as Japan, Australia or Saudi Arabia only managed to win at least 1-0 against Vietnam. Given the important nature of the match, it is not surprising if Vietnam continues to bring a pragmatic face.
It is not difficult for Thailand to get 4 consecutive victories, but it must be admitted that Group A this year is quite gentle. Still relying on veterans like Dangda or star Chanathip, Thai football has not found a worthy successor and has lost their position as a regional leader to Vietnam. Shown very clearly in the last WC qualifying round Elephant even ranked 4th, or the 2018 AFF Cup also stopped at the semi-finals. The attack did not meet expectations, with only 2 goals in the East Timo net and completely empty before Malaysia. Thailand’s bright spot under Polking played firmly, keeping a clean sheet in the last 3/4 matches, including a good performance against Singapore. With what has been shown, Thailand will have to be very careful against the biggest opponent in this year’s tournament – Vietnam.
Both will have to be very cautious and gain great respect for their opponents. Both possess a well-organized defense, the tug-of-war is predictable. In fact, the last 3 confrontations had only 1 goal, the last 4/6 matches of Vietnam ended with Under.
Select: Under 2.25 FT.
Thailand holds a record of 5 times being crowned champion in the past and is still a force in Southeast Asia. The 0 bet level set by the bookie correctly reflects the relationship of forces, Vietnam has caught up after 2 consecutive AFF Cup and Sea Game championships and reached the 3rd qualifying round of the World Cup. Since being led by Mr. Park, Vietnam has gone through 33 consecutive matches without tasting defeat against Southeast Asian representatives, including 27 victories. In the last 3 encounters with Thailand, the Golden Dragon were unbeaten, including a 1-0 victory at the King Cup in Thailand. Not to mention the constant friction with the top teams in the region to help them improve
Thailand’s group stage performance is perfect, especially in the 2-0 victory over Singapore. However, that was not enough to beat the defending champion, Vietnam in 4 group stage matches also won 3 and did not even concede any goals. With the balance of this matchup, the high probability of winning or losing will only be decided in the second leg.
