After failing to make it to the final, U23 Malaysia and U23 Thailand will face off in the 2023 U23 Southeast Asia third place clash. Both teams will have to struggle to overcome disappointment and defend their honor in front of their fans.
U23 Malaysia is targeting the final but must admit the superiority of U23 Vietnam, which won a landslide victory 4-1 in the semifinals. The Harimau Muda team was unable to keep up with the fast and aggressive play of their opponents. They also made many mistakes at the back which were exploited by the Vietnamese attackers.
U23 Thailand also suffered a similar fate when they lost 1-3 to U23 Indonesia in the semifinals. The home team appeared less convincing and could not take advantage of the opportunities that existed. They also lost in ball possession and aerial duels to the Garuda Muda team. This defeat, of course, disappointed the fans who hoped their team could become champions.
Both teams must immediately recover from defeat and focus on this game. They have to show a strong spirit and mentality to achieve victory. This is also an opportunity for them to improve their form and prove that they deserve to be in the Southeast Asia U23 top flight.
In terms of player quality and playing style, U23 Thailand is rated higher than U23 Malaysia. They have midfielders who are creative and can provide mature passes for attackers. They also have Chukid, a sharp and dangerous attacker. However, he must increase his sharpness so as not to waste goal opportunities.
U23 Malaysia also has several players with potential, such as Syafiq Ahmad, Safawi Rasid, and Akhyar Rashid. They can create a threat to opposing defenses with their speed and dribbles. However, they need to get more support from the midfielders in order to get good balls.
Defense is a weak point for both teams. They often make mistakes and leave space for opponents to attack. They have to strengthen their defense so they don’t concede again. They also have to play more disciplined and compact to maintain a balance between attack and defense.
The Thailand U23 national team has the advantage of playing at home and supported by their fans. It is estimated that the hosts can handle the pressure and are not affected by the previous defeat, they have a bigger chance of winning than U23 Malaysia.
