For the past six games these two teams played, they have yet to experience a loss, winning four, and drawing two. In fact, they have been doing well at home, as their last home game ended in a dominating win. That match is against Myanmar in January 3, where they won in a 3-0 victory. From their last five games, three of those matches produced an average of 2.5 goals, with their opponent being scoreless. On those last five matches, Vietnam was able to keep a clean sheet. Additionally, this team surely knows how to make use of their homecourt advantage. They know the importance of having the home crowd at their backs, an advantage they are hoping to make use in this match as well.

Coming into this game, the Indonesians have one goal in mind-to reach their second straight Finals in the contest. Although their last win against Vietnam was almost seven years ago, they remain to be hopeful that they could win in this match. After all, they are an unbeaten team in their last eight matches, so they are holding on their chances. Moreover, in their last 10 games, they managed to keep three clean sheets. This just proves that Indonesia is a capable team to upset anyone in the tournament. Although this team has the road disadvantage, they managed to show many times that playing in the road is not a disadvantage for them.
