NAME: Malaysia – Thailand
DATE: 7 Jan 2023
TIME: 12:30 UTC
VENUE: Bukit Jalil National Stadium, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Perhaps the toughest game of their AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 campaign awaits Malaysia today as they welcome Thailand to the Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
Having not yet faced Thailand in the AFF Championship since 2018, a meeting with the six-time ASEAN champions is, on paper, one of, if not the most challenging fixture Kim Pan-gon and his men will have to deal with.
The War Elephants step into the fixture as heavy favourites having not lost a single game in this campaign so far.
Malaysia, on the other hand, are on cloud nine after thrashing Causeway rivals Singapore 4-1 just a few days ago and will look to continue their fine form.

Malaysia will have to make do without Azam Azmi, whose red card against Vietnam means he is suspended for the clash with Thailand. Khuzaimi Piee will also be unavailable for selection after picking up a calf injury against Myanmar.
Thailand, on the other hand, are at full strength and are expected to field their strongest XI against the Harimau Malaya.
