Both teams won their opening match and will seek another victory to confirm their place in the Suzuki Cup last four, but the Malaysians will have to dig deep and put out a much improved performance to stand a chance against the group favourites.
Vietnam were excellent in the 2-1 win over co-hosts Myanmar, a sign that their speed, technical ability and desire to bury their 2014 ghosts will be difficult to beat.
Then, the Vietnamese outplayed the Tigers to win the first leg of their semi-final 2-1 in Kuala Lumpur but fell flat in Hanoi, where Malaysia raced to a 4-1 lead by half-time before settling for a 5-4 aggregate triumph to reach the final.
Vietnam are once again favourites and this time, Nguyen Huu Thang’s men are looking stronger than ever with a fast brand of attacking football.
Malaysia coach Ong Kim Swee is expected to take a defensive approach to the match, in the hope of frustrating Vietnam and hitting them on the break.
