MATCH PREVIEW

Thailand rank third and will host Indonesia who are bottom of the group. Thailand are three points behind leaders Vietnam and a point behind second placed Malaysia. Of their five group matches, only their away game in Malaysia has been lost. That was a 2-1 defeat, disappointing after taking a seventh minute lead. Leaders Vietnam aren't playing this week, while Malaysia have a tricky game at fourth placed UAE. A win over Indonesia could therefore take them to the top of the group. Thailand aren't in the best of form coming into this game but shouldn't need to be at their best to get a win here. 

 

Indonesia are rock bottom of the group having lost all five of their games and have a goal difference of -13. They lost the reverse fixture against Thailand 3-0 and would probably be happy with a similar result in this match. Their two away games in this group have both been lost with seven goals conceded. They have lost each of their last seven games and conceded at least three goals in all but one of them. Back Thailand to get an important win and be ahead at both half and full time.

 

KEY STATS

Indonesia have lost their last seven games.

The last five Indonesia games have seen them losing at half and full time.

Indonesia last escaped defeat in an away World Cup game in 2011.

Thailand won the reverse fixture 3-0.

 

BETTING VERDICT

Nothing but a win will be good enough for Thailand in this game. They are third in the group but only three points behind leaders Vietnam. Second might get them into the next round as one of the best runner-ups so a goal difference boosting win will be handy here. Their form isn't great but their opponents are yet to earn a point in this group and terrible on their travels. Back a home win and Thailand ahead at half and full time.
