AFC Champions League draw results: A chance for Thailand to REVENGE Vietnam

For Thai supporters' point of view, it is a good chance to revenge Vietnamese football, especially after recent disappointing performances. Since 2018, Thai football's results were always worse than Vietnam, and they also could not beat "Golden Stars".

Moreover, in the 2019 King's Cup, Thailand was defeated by Vietnam in their home ground. In the 30th SEA Games, Thailand lost Vietnam in both men's and women's football events.

However, even if Buriram United beats the Ho Chi Minh City club, they do not have any chance to advance to the group stage.

The winner between them will meet Shanghai SIPG in the play-off round. At the moment, Southeast Asian clubs cannot compete against a team that has world-class players namely Oscar, Hulk, and Arnautovic in the squad.
