In the last 2020 competition, the two teams met in the group stage and drew 0-0 goalless. 

Indonesia equaled Thailand with 3 wins and 1 draw in Group A, but advanced to the semifinals in second place behind Thailand (+11) in goal difference (+9). Vietnam recorded 3 wins and 1 draw in Group B and advanced to 1st place in Group B without conceding a goal. 

Coach Shin Tae-yong, who has to deal with a scoreless team, analyzed that the Vietnamese opponents were weak. “I think the Vietnamese opponents were weak, so they couldn’t score,” he said. 

Indonesia should also beat Vietnam, but the record is at a disadvantage for Indonesia. In their last four head-to-head matches, Indonesia has not beaten Vietnam once. 

Moreover, unlike the previous tournament, Indonesia showed regret for its unique decision-making power in this tournament. In the group stage, against Brunei, Thailand, and the Philippines, he blew big chances in three consecutive matches and upset coach Shin Tae-yong. 

Head coach Shin Tae-yong said, “Our players felt a lot. After the match against the Philippines, they passed the group stage, but they scolded many players in the locker room. I forgot about the players as they passed by and trained on goal-making for two days.” 

He showed determination, saying, “I raised the game content a lot, and if you put it in at a decisive opportunity, I will make sure that there will be no talk of ‘I have never had any luck with goals’ in tomorrow’s game.”
