Thailand Football defends title

The Thailand Football team and Vietnam Football team are the two remaining teams for the AFF Championship, as they meet for the first leg of their Finals match. Coming into this game, these two teams will have the chance to improve their chances of claiming the title. These two teams topped their respective groups during the group stage. Additionally, they both scored more than any other teams in the contest, and conceded fewer goals. This is why it is not surprising that these two teams are the teams who qualified for the Finals. The first leg of the Finals will be on January 13, 2023, at 8:30 PM (GMT+8), as Vietnam host this game.

These two teams just met for five times, but both teams only won once apiece, with all the three remaining games ended in draw. However, from those five games, the hosts only managed to score against the visitors once, and conceded twice. Luckily, they are doing well at home, undefeated from their last five home games. As for the visitors, they are not doing well on their away games. In fact, from their last five away games, they won twice, draw once, and lost to two away matches. They come into this game with hopes of being able to defend their title in the tournament.

With Thailand having a very impressive record, in addition to their title as the defending champions, it is not surprising that they are at the Finals. This Finals is already their 10th AFF Finals, which is why they are the most successful team in the contest. From those 10 Finals game, they won seven times, qualifying them as the team with most championships. Aside from topping their group stage, they also managed to defeat Malaysia, 3-1 in the semis. However, Vietnam is like Thailand’s kryptonite, as Thailand is having a hard time winning against them. This team currently has six total goals, and are eyeing to end the tournament as top scorers.

AFF Championship: Vietnam

Vietnam managed to book a meeting against Thailand for the Finals of the AFF Championship, which looks like a rematch of their 2008 title match. During the group stage, they nearly had a perfect run, with three wins, and one draw. During their semis match against Indonesia, they had a 2-0 win, to qualify them for the title match. Vietnam is a team who is no longer new for the title, winning twice in the AFF Championship. They go against Thailand in 2008, and against Malaysia in 2018. This team knows how important the first leg, and they are looking to maximize their home advantage coming into this match. A win in the first leg is important because if they lose in this game, a second leg is not a guarantee for them, despite their chances.
