>>> V.League: Hanoi FC thrash Song Lam Nghe An to claim top spot >>> Hai Phong claim second place, Sanna Khanh Hoa earn first win Inspired by the AFC Cup win over Myanmar’s Shan United a few days ago, manager Nguyen Thanh Son’s side headed into the home clash with strong confidence. The former V.League champions played a dominant game in the first half, threatening to score twice as To Van Vu and Sy Giap forced Viettel goalie Quang The Tai to work hard for saves in the 22nd and 32nd minute, respectively. Following several missed opportunities, Becamex Binh Duong eventually broke the deadlock six minutes after the hour mark, with Wander Luiz catching Sy Giap’s pass with his shoulder before lobbing the ball over the Viettel keeper.

Meanwhile, Viettel still stood at third from bottom with just three points.
