(Football video, Hanoi – HCMC, V-League round 4) Hanoi was the better player and created more chances in the first 45 minutes.
Hanoi played without many pillars with Do Hung Dung and Van Quyet as substitutes, and Quang Hai was not on the list. On the HCMC side, goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung was given a chance to start, replacing the injured Thanh Thang.
Tien Dung made a great save in the first half
Missed a lot of pillars, but Hanoi still had no trouble dominating the game after the early whistle. In the 10th minute, goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung made a mistake in a rush to catch the ball and almost made Ho Chi Minh City pay the price.
But it was also the former Vietnam U-23 player who made an excellent save for Ho Chi Minh City after Mr Hai finished in the Hanoi side. Tuan Hai was also the most active player in the home team’s attack, but the Vietnam striker was less sharp in the late stages. The first half ended goalless.
