Prediction for Malaysia - Vietnam. On Friday, June 5, 2021, the next round of the second stage of qualification for the 2022 World Cup from Asia will be played. How will the match of the 8th round of the two teams from Group G end?
Over the past 5 years, these teams have played 5 matches against each other. Vietnam won 4 of them + had one draw. In October 2019, Vietnam minimally won 1-0 at home.
Malaysia now has 9 points. On June 3, the teams had a very important match, which had to be won in order to really qualify for a ticket to the third round of qualifying. But the 0:4 defeat of the UAE national team crossed everything out. However, experts noted that Malaysia was not ready for the start of official matches. After a 2-year pause, we decided to limit ourselves to one friendly game, in which we were defeated 0:2 by a modest Bahrain. With such training, it was foolish to expect success.
Vietnam leads the group, only two points ahead of the UAE. May 15 will be the last round of selection, in which Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates will meet, but it is desirable to approach this meeting with the existing lead in points. Vietnam also played only 1 friendly match before the start of the final rounds of the qualifiers. But the opponent was not easy (Jordan) and Vietnam did not lose (draw 1:1). And on June 7, the Vietnamese defeated Indonesia 4-0
