Singapore – Indonesia SOCCER PICKS
Match of the First Round of the ASEAN Cup that will face in Singapore the Singapore and Indonesia national teams.
Regarding Indonesia, it is said that it is a selection somewhat covered up by the fact that it was sanctioned by FIFA for a couple of biennia for various scams. Since 2016 they are competing with quite decent results. In fact in the last edition of this tournament they finished 2nd behind the very top Thailand. In that tournament they defeated Singapore, Vietnam and came to win a match in the final against Thailand. In general they are a mid-level selection in Asia. After that only friendly, with some surprising defeat against Burma; but with good results beating Brunei, Cambodia or tying with Hong Kong (the latter of higher level than Singapore).
For its part, Singapore is a medium-low level selection for Asia, which is competitive thanks to its good defensive work. However, in recent years the results are not very bright. They were left out of an Asian Cup to which they will go until the prompter being unable to win a match against Turkmenistan, Bahrain and Taipei. While in the last AFF cup they went home on the fast track by adding a single point in a group with Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Seeing how the group is, it is essential to win this match and more for Indonesia that will not have many more opportunities. Singapore is behind Timor the weakest team, and the Indonesians should be fighting for qualification against the Philippines.
