Malaysia U23 vs. Indonesia U23: Match Preview, Where To Watch Live AFF U23, August 18, 2023

The Malaysia U23 national team will face the Indonesia U23 national team in Matchday 1 of the AFF U23 on Friday, August 18, 2023. Live streaming of Malaysia U23 vs Indonesia U23, preview, lineup predictions, and how to watch the match live broadcast, can be watched in this article.

The Indonesian U23 national team will start their struggle in the 2023 U23 AFF Cup by facing eternal rival, U23 Malaysia, in the opening match of Group B. This match will take place at Rayong Province Stadium, Rayong, Thailand, on Friday (18/8).

The Indonesian U23 national team came to this tournament with good capital after winning the gold medal at the 2023 SEA Games in Cambodia a few months ago. Shin Tae-yong’s team managed to beat Thailand in the final with a score of 2-1 thanks to goals from Esal Sahrul and Ramadhan Sananta.

However, the Indonesian U23 national team could not bring their best squad to the 2023 AFF U23 Cup because several star players were not released by their clubs. Rizky Ridho and Dzaky Asraf from Persija Jakarta, as well as Muhammad Rafli from PSM Makassar, are a few names who were absent from the list of 23 players brought by Shin Tae-yong.

To fill this void, Shin Tae-yong chose to combine players from the 2023 SEA Games squad with players who failed to appear at the 2023 U20 World Cup and several new names. Ernando Ari, Kadek Arel, Muhammad Ferarri, Komang Teguh, Fengky Missa, Alfeandra Dewangga, Beckham Putra, and Irfan Jahuari are some of the players who are trusted to defend the Indonesian U23 National Team.

Meanwhile, U23 Malaysia also failed to field their strongest team in the 2023 U23 AFF Cup. Their young star, Arif Aiman Hanapi, is still playing for Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) in the 2023 Malaysia Super League (LSM) and has not been released by his club. . In addition, several other players also canceled due to injury or personal reasons.

Malaysia’s U23 coach, E. Elavarasan, finally chose to summon many players from Selangor FC and JDT II as the backbone of his team. He also relies on several players who play for NGOs, such as Izwan Yuslan and Ruventhiran Vengadesan from Selangor FC, as well as Harith Akif Shahar from Kelantan FC.

U23 Malaysia want to improve their performance in the AFF U23 Cup after failing to qualify from the group phase in the previous edition. They also want to repay their debt to the Indonesian U23 National Team who defeated them in the 2023 SEA Games bronze medal match with a score of 2-0.

This match is predicted to be fierce and exciting because the two teams are rivals for a long time and both want to win in their opening game. However, if you look at the current strength and motivation of the two teams, the Indonesian U23 National Team is more favored to win.

The Indonesian U23 national team still has most of the players who won the 2023 SEA Games gold medal and are under the tutelage of Shin Tae-yong who has experience and a long-term vision for Indonesian football. They also wanted to give a special gift for Indonesia’s recently celebrated Independence Day.
