Philippines vs. Thailand Prediction and gambling advice for December 26, 2022

Thailand host the Philippines at the Thammasat Stadium in Pathum Thani on Monday at the AFF Championship, looking to build on their fantastic start to the campaign.

The War Elephants thrashed Brunei 5-0 on Tuesday, with Bordin Phala, Teerasil Dangda, an own goal from Awangku Yura and a stoppage-time brace from Peeradon Chamratsamee combining for their second biggest win of the calendar year.

The Philippines, meanwhile, recovered from their 3-2 opening day loss to Cambodia to hammer Brunei 5-1 in their second game and get their campaign up and running.

Kenshiro Daniels, Sandro Reyes, Jesus Melliza and Jens Rasmussen combined to put the Street Dogs 4-0 up by the 51st minute before Muhammad Ramlli pulled one back for the hapless Hornets. Rasmussen then scored a fifth in the 88th minute to gloss over the scoreline.

With three points in the bag, Josep Ferré’s side are second in Group A to Thailand, who have a better goal difference.

The War Elephants will be motivated to perform in a similar vein on Monday, although the Philippines are flying high after their resounding victory over the Hornets.

Neither team would be willing to lose the momentum by losing the game and could hence play out a draw here.

Prediction: Thailand 1-1 The Philippines
