The Thai team won 7-0 in group B. But in front of the defending champions from this area 3 opponents are very dangerous and unpredictable.

AFF Cup 2018 This is interesting, interesting and no less dramatic. Group B is difficult to predict when outside Timor Leste is too weak, the other four teams include Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia with three points.
Thailand faces three very difficult matches
Thailand and the Philippines have the advantage of playing games. While Indonesia lost to Singapore, while Singapore lost to the Philippines (both won Timor Leste). So the next 3 turns will be a turning point for the big league.
Thailand while topping the table with +7. The second match, the team "Golden Temple" was played back to Indonesia (17/11). In theory, Thailand has too many advantages to extend the winning circuit. However, Indonesian white hands are not allowed because they are at the foot of the wall.
Indonesia after a disappointing defeat in Singapore (0-1) has won victory on the night of 13/11. Three goals against Timor Leste to help the "island island" team to regain confidence. The experience of the 37-year-old Brazilian Brazilian striker will be a "weapon" to help Indonesia raise hopes.
After touching Indonesia for 4 days, Thailand will undergo the most difficult surgery. The Philippines, under the guidance of veteran coach Eriksson and the naturalized star system, proved a danger in the battle. Before Singapore was well organized, the Philippines presented a modern and strict game. They do not give opponents any chance before punishment.
The Philippines and Singapore have the potential to reach the coast
It can be said that the Philippines is the most feasible and predictable opponent in Group B. They have the Cardiff City goalkeeper in the Premiership, captain Younghusband and many European players. With each element, coach Eriksson has enough experience to find victory at home.
In the third round, the Philippines will have many opportunities to defeat Timor Leste (17/11). In the fourth round, if the Philippines wins over Thailand (21/11), teacher Eriksson will surpass the lead with 9 points (kick 3 matches). Meanwhile, Thailand has a maximum of 6 points (in the case of winning Indonesia in the previous 3).
The last opponent is waiting Thailand is Singapore. The team will also have three points against Timor Leste in the third round to collect 6 points as Thailand. So it's possible that the meeting in Bangkok on 25/11 will be the "last" match of the two teams. And in life and death battles, no one dares to say Thailand will defeat Singapore to qualify for the group stage.
