Hong Kong vs Thailand: Top Free Betting Tips
After successive defeats to Vietnam and Malaysia, Hong Kong looks to turn around their fortunes against Thailand. The War Elephants are a difficult beast to tame and themselves will be looking to get back to winning ways.
Match Result Prediction: Thailand to Win
Thailand has struggled for success and are winless in three outings, Hong Kong's wait has been one match longer. While the War Elephants took on bigger threats and eventually came second, the Dragons were tame in their attempts, being shut out twice in this period. Three of their last four meetings have finished in favour of the Thais and we are backing them to claim the three points on offer.
Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
The reason for Hong Kong and Thailand's poor form has been their inability to score effectively. Hong Kong have only scored once in their last four matches. On the other hand, with four goals in four matches, Thailand has not given a good account of their abilities. It is not that their defence gave free way to their rivals in this period with Thailand conceding seven goals while Hong Kong allowed four goals in this period. With both sides preferring fewer goals in attack and defence, we are backing an Under 2.5 Goals conclusion to this game.
Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Thailand
Thailand are favoured in this matchup given their greater pedigree. Add into the fact that they defeated Vietnam in the AFF Championship Playoffs Final, the same side that beat Hong Kong in their last international friendly. However, given their recent form, it does not look like they will be providing a goalscoring extravaganza. With their last two meetings with Thailand finished with 1-0 victories, we expect the same scoreline given their struggles in attack.

Hong Kong Preview
A victory over Myanar allowed Hong Kong to breathe a sigh of relief. It allowed them to end their four-match losing streak that included 4-0 defeat to India and a 6-0 hammering at the hands of Japan. They have since gone on another four-match winless streak, two draws and draw defeats. The Dragons need better results with Jorn Anderson needing to find ways to get them out of their troubles. Or else it will be a repeat of the EAFF E-1 Football Championship, where they could not score once while shipping in 10 goals.
Alexandré Pölking would have been pleased with his side's progress in the AFF Championships. It saw them register five wins and two draws in their eight competitive fixtures. Lady luck has not smiled on Thailand since, tasting a 3-1 defeat to Syria and a 2-0 dismantling at the hands of UAE on the road. Their 2-2 draw against Chinese Taipei must have also stung. Polking needs to get rid of its away woes and will fancy a result against Hong Kong to put it in the rearview mirror.
