Westfield Matildas v Vietnam: fixture history

The Westfield Matildas have plenty of cause for confidence ahead of their clash with Vietnam in Jordan on Wednesday morning (AEDT).

Held to a 0-0 draw by Korea Republic in the weekend's 2018 AFC Women's Asian Cup opener, history suggests Australia will not encounter the same resistance in their second Group B game.

Here's a look at how our record stacks up against the Southeast Asian country.

Westfield Matildas v Vietnam

Australia have beaten Vietnam in all six of their meetings in international football.

The trend was set with a 1-0 victory in the ASEAN Championship Final in May 2008 and the divide has only widened from there, with the Westfield Matildas yet to concede a goal against Vietnam.

Conversely, in the last three meetings, Alen Stajcic's side have scored 24 times, including an 11-0 annihilation leading into the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.

Michelle Heyman helped herself to a hat-trick in that match and, with five in total against Vietnam, could figure prominently on Wednesday morning.

The underdogs will also fear the sight of Kyah Simon after she netted a treble in the teams' most recent contest, a 9-0 drubbing in Olympic Games qualifying two years ago.

AFC Women's Asian Cup clashes have tended to be tighter, with Australia prevailing 2-0 in 2010 and 2014.

Leena Khamis and Kylie Ledbrook were on target in the former, while an own goal and a Katrina Gorry piledriver did the damage in Ho Chi Minh City.
