Indonesia, Vietnam, ready for semis match

Indonesia and Vietnam are now ready to take their chances to enter the Finals of the AFF Championship when they meet for their semis match leg 1. This meeting will be hosted by Indonesia, and will take place on January 6, 2023, at 5:30 PM (GMT+8). Indonesia finished at the second of Group A, after garnering 10 pints during the group stage. Vietnam on the other hand finished at the top of Group B with 10 points as well. What is more amazing with this Vietnamese squad is the fact that they have yet to concede a single goal so far in the contest.

These two teams have met for 25 times already, and the wins of these two teams are not far from each other. While Indonesia won eight times, Vietnam have won seven matches, while the remaining 10 matches all ended in draw. However, the hosts last won a match against the visitors during the 2016 AFF Championship. Since then, the visitors remained unbeaten from their last four games. As they have the opportunity to face one another in this match, the hosts are hoping to finally list a win against the visitors once again.

With goal difference being lesser than Thailand, Indonesia remains to be at the second spot of Group A, with 10 points across their name. During the group stage, they had three wins and one draw, which means they are uneaten on their group. Their wins include a dominating 7-0 win against Brunei, more than enough to qualify for the next round. Their qualification for the first leg of the semi-finals is the second consecutive times they qualified for the next round. From their last seven games, this squad is actually unbeaten, winning six, and drawing one across all competitions. This squad have made a statement on their campaign, displaying how strong they are as a team.

Vietnam finished the group stage at the top of their group stage with 10 points from their four games. From those four games, they have yet to concede a single goal, keeping a clean sheet in all their matches. This squad might have a little advantage going into this match, as they won 2 of their last 3 matches against Indonesia. From those three matches, they gained seven point, conceding only one goal. Defense have been their key all throughout the tournament, which is the reason why they have yet to concede a single goal so far. In this match, expect them to parade their tremendous defense once again.
