It’s the second Group K match in the AFC U-23 Championship 2020 qualifiers as Vietnam battle Indonesia.
It should be a good battle as both are fighting for important points in the hopes of making it to the final tournament.
At the moment, the Golden Dragons are looking good as they are atop the cluster with three points following a dominating 6-0 win over Brunei. They are currently at par with final tournament hosts Thailand on points but have superior goal difference which sees them atop the standings.
On the other hand, Indonesia were dealt a heavy blow by the War Elephants in their campaign curtain-raiser as they lost 4-0.
Now, they are facing the hosts of the group qualifiers and are hoping to do enough to get maximum points to keep their hopes of moving on still alive.

On Matchday 2 of the ongoing AFC U-23 Championship 2020 qualifiers, Group J member Indonesia U-23 will take on Vietnam U-23 in their second match.
In their opening match of the AFC U-23 Championship 2020 qualifiers, Vietnam picked a 6-0 victory against Brunei to make a strong claim for a spot in the competition. They will look to strengthen that claim in today’s match as their head coach Park Hang-seo believes that his team has the potential of being better than their current form.
“I feel satisfied with this victory, even though the players were not at their best. I appreciate the team’s efforts. The players have followed the intentions of the coaching team, however, Vietnam U23s still have to try more”, said the former Korea Republic coach.
Commenting on the most efficient way in which his team can play, Park Hang-seo added, “In the match (against Brunei), we used long balls from both wings. This was a new experience for my players, although I think myself and the players do not like this kind of long ball. The most effective way of playing for Vietnam U23s at present is a quick adaptation on a narrow range, to take advantage of the agility and technique of the Vietnamese players”.
Their opponents Indonesia do not boast of a similar fate in the competition, so far. They suffered a 0-4 loss against Thailand and their only hopes of qualifying for AFC U-23 Championship 2020 is to pick a win with a bigger goal difference in today’s match.
Will Indonesia succeed in getting past their hosts in the group stages of the ongoing qualifiers or will Vietnam book a spot for themselves in the AFC U-23 Championship 2020 qualifiers by the end of today’s match?

The match between Indonesia and Vietnam will take place on March 24, and kicks-off by 9:00 PM SGT.
