In the first leg of their AFF Championship semifinals on Saturday, January 7, Malaysia will play Thailand at the Bukit Jalil Stadium in Kuala Lumpur. With nine points from four games, the Tigers of Malaya finished second in Group B, one point behind leaders Vietnam, who face Indonesia in the other game in the last four.
The Golden Star Warriors defeated Kim Pan-Gon’s team 3-0 after victories over Myanmar and Laos. As a result, they fell to third place in the standings, jeopardizing their prospects for advancement. However, Malaysia advanced to the semifinals at Singapore’s expense thanks to a crushing 4-1 victory over the team that came into the game one point ahead of them on the final day.
After both teams finished with ten points, Thailand won Group A on a goal difference over Indonesia. The War Elephants won big games against Brunei and the Philippines, but Indonesia held them to a draw, and they came back to beat Cambodia in their final game to win the group.
