Indonesia: Not giving up hope ( Recent Form: D W L W L )
Despite being a large and densely populated country in Southeast Asia, the truth is that Indonesia is not a very strong team in AFC. Nevertheless, the last time Indonesia and Vietnam often appear in continental tournaments. Although there have not been any outstanding achievements, more or less, it shows the tireless efforts of this country's football. In the past, Indonesia had once attended the World Cup in 1938 as the Dutch East Indies. They are the first Asian team to participate in the most prestigious tournament in the world. However, that has been a long time ago, with the current strength, it is difficult for Indonesia to squeeze into the World Cup. In their squad there is no notable name, most of them are playing in the country only. Along with that, Indonesia's play is also not appreciated. It is too physical and often "give up" before the technical team. Last time, Indonesia has been quite stable. The last 10 matches they brought 5 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. However, facing a strong team like Thailand will surely make them face many difficulties.
Thailand: The power of elephants ( Recent Form: W L L L D )
Thailand always thinks that it is the leading representative of football in Southeast Asia. However, the performance of the war elephant last time left great disappointment for their fans and experts. Many people think that Thai football is going downhill. The evidence for that is that they went back and forth in many regional and continental tournaments, including the friendly tournament organized by themselves. Statistics show that Thailand's performance in the last 10 matches is not good. They only got 2 wins, 2 draws and 6 defeats. It seems that their attack is heavily dependent on Chanathip, just without this striker, the attack stage becomes more difficult than ever. However, their strength is not medium in any way, compared to Indonesia, they are still a lot better. The Thai squad possesses formidable names like Chanathip, Dangda with abundant experience, or Supachai young talent ... Therefore, experts still trust Thailand more than rivals.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, the ability to attend the most prestigious football tournament in the world of the two teams is not high. However, if placed on the scale, Thailand is still more appreciated. This is not surprising because the golden temple team is still considered the leading force of regional football. They have a quality player, technical kick and strength that makes every opponent afraid. In the past, Indonesia vs Thailand had 9 encounters. The achievement is tilted completely towards the visitors when this team wins 6 times. 3 matches Thailand lost with only a minimum gap.
