Thailand v Malaysia Match Prediction – Preview
Thailand suffered their first loss in the AFF Championship since 2016 after Malaysia beat the 0-1 at the Bukit Jalil Stadium. Pansa Hemviboon almost fired the War Elephants ahead on five minutes when he headed just wide of the net. Sarach Yooyen‘s cross had been intercepted by Harimau Malaya keeper Syihan Hamzi. After that, the home side would go on the 11th minute mark, while the visitors struggled to equalise. Teerasil Dangda, Bordin Phala and Peeradon Chamratsamee all went wide before the break. In the second half, the Elephants had better chances when Teerasil hit the woodwork, while Suphanan Bureerat’s shot hit the roof. Then, keeper Kittipong Phuthawchueak thought he had conceded to Malaysia, when the goal was ruled due to a foul in the buildup. The Thais were also denied a chance to equalise after Bordin was fouled by Nur Shamie. Manager Alexandre Polking‘s side now have to find a goal at home after the result. Will the reigning champions get back to their deadly form?
Malaysia gave the reigning champions a rude awakening after they narrowly beat Thailand 1-0. With Lee Tuck starting over Mukhairi Ajmal, the gamble for manager Kim Pan-gon paid off in the match. On 11 minutes, Sharul Nazeem played a long ball into the box, which Ruventhiran Vengadesan headed across the goal for Faisal Halim to strike his fourth goal in the competition. The Harimau Malaya almost doubled the lead before the break when Faisal sent Quentin Chang through only to have his effort go over. In the 55th minute, Tuck’s free kick hit Tan on the way in, but the goal was disallowed for a foul in the buildup. Nevertheless, the 2010 champions came away with an important win, as they head to the Thammasat to hopefully wrap things up. Or can they?
Thailand v Malaysia Match Prediction – Final Thoughts
Malaysia got the upper hand at the Bukit Jalil, but they could pay the price for not netting in more as the Thammasat crowd will be very hard to break. The War Elephants will also be very comfortable at home, as they have won their past games there by more than two goals, and talisman Teerasil scoring a double in each. Because of this, we pick the Thais to blank the Malaysians and secure their ticket to a second consecutive final. With that, let’s take a look at our prediction.
