Vietnam and Thailand will face-off at the My Dinh National Stadium, with the home side hoping to preserve a three-point lead at the top of Group G of their 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers (WCQ).
After a goalless away draw with Thailand in the opening match of their qualifying campaign, the hosts have pulled off three consecutive WCQ victories, two of which have come via the same 1-0 scoreline. The Golden Dragons are most lethal ten minutes before and after the halftime break, as three of a total of five WCQ goals they’ve scored so far arrived in that period. Park Hang-Seo’s men are practically unbeatable at home, having racked up an outstanding 19-game undefeated home run ahead of this fixture, friendlies included (W12, D7). Additionally, Vietnam’s airtight defense has refused to concede in eight of their previous ten home outings, allowing precisely one goal per match in the remaining two.
Meanwhile, the visitors will look to bounce back after their first Group G defeat that has seen them go down 2-1 to Malaysia on the road last time out. Thailand’s bright start to their qualifying campaign has witnessed them secure two triumphs in the first three WCQ matches (W2, D1). The War Elephants usually move through the gears after the break, as four of six WCQ goals they’ve scored so far came in the second half. But, Akira Nishino’s men have endured mixed fortunes in their last four road trips (W2, L2), with just one of those games seeing both teams score. That statistics can change here, given that two of three of Thailand’s previous trips to Vietnam saw both sides hit the net, with the traveling side avoiding defeat in each of those clashes (W1, D2).
