Malaysia will be satisfied with their form in recent games. In their last six outings, they have four wins with only two losses. Apart from a heavy 3–0 loss to Vietnam during the group stages, it has been a successful tournament for Malaysia so far. This will be the country’s first appearance in the semi-finals of the AFF Championship since 2018 and they will be looking to make the most of it.
Thailand will be very pleased with how its recent games have turned out. They have earned four wins with a draw and a loss. Thailand have averaged over three goals per game so far in the AFF Championship and will look to hurt Malaysia with their attacking prowess. It will be very important for Thailand to post a manageable total in the second leg.
With it being the semi-finals, there seems to be no reason for the coaches to deviate from their tried and tested system other than injuries. The strongest XI will be selected with the aim of taking another step towards the title.
