The China team will challenge the Malaysia team in a Friendly Match FIFA Matchday in Chengdu Phoenix Mountain Sports Park Stadium, Chengdu on Saturday, September 09, 2023. For streaming coverage of China vs Malaysia, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
The match between China and Malaysia that will take place this afternoon (local time) is a golden opportunity for the home team to raise confidence from the fans, after having had some poor results in recent times. It is also preparation for China’s 2026 World Cup and 2027 Asian Cup qualifiers.
Malaysia has been very serious in preparing for this match. Coach Kim Pan Gon has named his best players, among them many names Southeast Asian fans will be familiar with such as goalkeeper Hazmi, Brendan Gan, Doin Cool or Corbin-Ong. Malaysia had also had a friendly match with Syria previously and drew 2-2, in a match which they had to come from behind in the second half.
However, Malaysia will face a very big challenge when it meets China. The home team also has the presence of the country’s football stars, such as striker Wu Lei who played in Spain or naturalized player Ai Kesen. China has also had a two-match winning streak in the last two friendlies, beating Myanmar 4-0 and Palestine 2-0.
History also proves China’s dominance over Malaysia. Since 2004 until now, the two teams have met four times and China has won all of them, among them there have been three matches won with a minimum difference of two goals. The current performance from China is also very high, with an effective attack line and a solid back line.
Therefore, this match will be a very good opportunity for China to assert their strength in front of Malaysia, an opponent who is considered weaker. It is also an opportunity for China to drum up confidence from the fans, after being disappointed in the last official tournament. This match will be an important turning point for China on the way to the 2026 World Cup and 2027 Asian Cup.
It is estimated that this match will have quite a number of goals scored, when the attacking lines of both teams operate very effectively. While China has scored six goals in the last two matches, Malaysia has also had three goals in the draw with Syria. In addition, the last four meetings between the two teams also had a total of 12 goals scored.
