Vietnam vs Thailand (By: PlayMaker)
The match is in the last round of AFC U23 qualification, the final will be held next year in Thailand and may be considered as the qualification of Olympic Tokyo as the top 4 will go direct to Olympic Football Men. This game is played in Hanoi, Vietnam as the host of qualification group.
Thailand U23 is the host of the final, but they want participate the qualification round to get experience. While Vietnam U23 is the vice-champion of the previous tournament in China, thank for the incredible performance of the team with the new Korean coach. Vietnam is known actually as the best team of South East Asia and surely they want to maintain the record from last tournament to get a ticket to Tokyo 2020.
Both team had won twice after first 2 rounds, and Thailand is leading the group with better goal difference (4-0 Indonesia, 8-0 Brunei) compared to Vietnam (6-0 Brunei, 1-0 Indonesia). The last game of Vietnam look quite ugly as they scored only a header goal in 94th minutes. It had to say that Indonesia had played with 2 buses in front of the goalkeeper.
After all, this game will decide the 1st place of the group to be directly qualified. Vietnam is much more motivated to win because Thailand is still the host. But both team are the best of Asean and the clash will be the El Classico of the region. Thailand will start the full line-up when Vietnam welcome back their best defender (Dinh Trong) in the back. Even the last match is a little bit physically frustrate, the moral of the home team is boosted thank for the last minute goal.
The two teams are very balance but Vietnam will fight very hard to get at least 1 point, that ensure us from immediate elimination. With the home stadium advantage with the huge support of their fans. I will go safely for the handicap choice.
