Malaysia 2-1 Thailand: Thais nightmare at Bukit Jalil continued

Despite having to travel away, coach Akira Nishino has asked Thai players to actively play offensive attacks, aiming to preempt Malaysia. This unexpected play took off immediately when Chanathip Songkrasin shone by scoring the opener in the 6th minute.

After the early goal, Malaysia quickly stabilized the team and regained the game. The players of coach Tan Cheng Hoe constantly threaten the goal of Siwarak Tedsungnoen. The home team's efforts paid off when Mohamadou Sumareh made it easy for Brendan Gan to score an equalizer for Malaysia in the 27th minute. In the following minutes, both teams played attacking football and created many opportunities. However, no goals were scored. The first half ended with a 1-1 draw.

Entering the second half, Malaysia was still the team that took control of the ball and created many dangerous opportunities. Mohamadou Sumareh broke up with 90,000 supporters at Bukit Jalil, found the net of goalkeeper Siwarak Tedsungnoen, raising the score to 2-1 for Malaysia in the 57th minute.

At the end of the match, Mr. Akira Nishino made Thailand push up the team to find a goal. 'War Elephants' had created many chances. However, Supachok, Ekanit Panya or Teerasil Dangda are all ungainly in the final effort. In the end, Malaysia won 2-1 against Thailand.

With 3 points at home, Malaysia extended the unbeaten match against Thailand at Bukit Jalil. Mr. Tan's team had 6 points and ranked in 4th place in Group G, while Thailand had 7 points and fell to 2nd place after Vietnam won the UAE to get 10 points.

Malaysia vs Thailand match information

Time: 20:45 (GMT+8) on November 14th

Venue: Bukit Jalil Stadium

Competition: 2022 FIFA World Cup - AFC 2nd qualification round

Under Nishino Akira's management, Thailand improved dramatically after less than 6 months. After drawing a game with Vietnam, Thailand defeated not only Indonesia but also the United Arab Emirates. As a result, they are the team sharing the first place with Vietnam after 3 matches, with 1 point higher than the United Arab Emirates. Thanks to those positive results, gaining 3 points against Malaysia may be a relatively achievable task for Thai players.

If Thailand beats Malaysia tonight they will have more confidence before facing Vietnam next 5 days. Because of that, they called up all their best players to win both matches, which can be a long run to aim the top position of Group G. It is not an impossible mission, especially if we look at their form in current matches. At the moment, it is not easy for any team to face Thailand.

In the case of Malaysia, despite winning 3-2 against Indonesia in the opening match, they lost Vietnam and United Arab Emirates too easily. That is one of the drawbacks of the Malaysia team. Their players are too weak, both physically and mentally, to play against stronger opponents. Thus, Malaysia does not seem to have so much chance even they have the home ground advantage.

Malaysia vs Thailand possible lineups:

Malaysia: Farizal Marlias, Matthew Davies, Shahrul Saad, Syahmi Safari, Adam Nor Azlin, Azam Azih, Afiq Fazail, Norshahrul Idlan Talaha, Shahrel Fikri Fauzi, Safawi Rasid, Mohamadou Sumareh.
