Thailand vs Indonesia Today Match LIVE Football Score 3/6/2021
Thailand’s chances of qualification could be heavily boosted by this round of fixtures because they will likely take advantage of their main competitors for the top two, Malaysia and UAE, playing off each other so at least one will drop points whereas they come up against an Indonesia side that have lost all five of their qualifiers whilst conceding more than three goals per game in this period. Former Japan manager Akira Nishino will be extremely confident that the home team will win this quite comfortably.
Dubai: Thailand and Malaysia have a chance to move top of Group G of the Asian Qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and AFC Asian Cup China 2023 with wins on Thursday as they face Indonesia and the UAE respectively.
AFC Asian Cup runners-up in 1996 and semi-finalists in the last two editions, the UAE have flattered to deceive, conceding away loses to Vietnam and Thailand and finding themselves languishing in fourth and in need of a strong run-in at home if they are to keep alive their hopes of reaching the FIFA World Cup for the second time after 1990.
Thailand v Indonesia
Eyeing the top spot of the group, Thailand take on Indonesia knowing that victory would take them beyond current leaders Vietnam, but they would also need the UAE to stop Malaysia if they are to end the week at the summit.
Despite high-profile absences including the likes of Chanathip Songkrasin and Theerathon Bunmathan, coach Akira Nishino’s men will be confident of a win against an Indonesia side that is yet to collect a single point in the group.
