Indonesia vs Thailand
World Cup Qualification Asia
Date: Tuesday, 10 September 2019
Kick-off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Utama Gelora Bung Karno (Jakarta).
Indonesia were at the losing end of a five-goal thriller against Malaysia in their opener, with their counterparts slotting the winning goal deep into the second-half stoppage time.
Despite taking the lead twice in that game, the Indonesians were unable to keep a hold of it every single time and were consequently handed a defeat in their own back yard.
Thailand’s opening clash with Vietnam, on the other hand, was devoid of any sort of excitement or goals for that matter as the match ended in a stalemate, leaving both teams to be content with just the point.
Neither side showed any sort of conviction in the final third and managed not more than three shots on target between them as well.
Although Thailand have not registered a win in their last five games in a running, that alone is not going to cut for the hosts, who have not come out on top in any of their previous three matches either.
Indonesia vs Thailand Head to head (h2h)
- Three out of their last four fixtures have seen Thailand taste success.
- Their previous encounter saw Indonesia lose by a 4-2 scorecard.
- Four of their last five games have featured over 2.5 goals on the charts.
- Half of their previous eight clashes have seen both teams get their names on the scoresheet.
Indonesia vs Thailand Prediction
Despite slotting two past their foes, the home team’s efforts to salvage at least a point from their opening game went in vain. Furthermore, the hosts have just one win from their last five major games and have not been able to get the better of this opponent in their previous two meetings in a running either.
However, it has been five games since Thailand last found the back of the net and have been admitting defeat in four of those five as well. So it certainly too soon to call a clear winner at this stage.
What can be certain nevertheless, is the fact that there will be goals down each end in this one and here is why. None of their last eight head to head clashes have ended in a stalemate, while four of their previous five matches have seen both teams find the back of the net.
Furthermore, at least one team has scored in the opening forty-five minutes in their last four games against each other.
Considering that the scores have not been tied at half time in any of those games either, there is certainly every reason to back either Indonesia or Thailand to be on top at the break when they meet this Tuesday.
