Song Lam Nghe An defeated Hoang Anh Gia Lai 2-0 to become the only host team securing a victory at V.League’s 9th round on Sunday as Vietnam’s premier football league resumed after nearly two-month mid-season break.
Graduating from Hoang Anh Gia Lai – Arsenal JMG Academy, Hoang Anh Gia Lai young players have remained a magnet to local spectators and continued to be put in the media spotlight.
This has drawn dangerous side-effects as it is rumored that the other 13 teams in the league all claim that they could lose to any team but Hoang Anh Gia Lai, owned by tycoon Doan Nguyen Duc.
In the 6th minute, Song Lam Nghe An’s Ho Tuan Tai had a shot that hit the pole. In an ensuing attack a minute later, Manh Hung scored a goal for Song Lam Nghe An with a shot pass several defenders and goalkeeper Minh Nhut of Hoang Anh Gia Lai.
The second goal for Song Lam Nghe An also came from a long-distance shot in the 73rd minute by Phi Son.
Hoang Anh Gia Lai Coach Guillaume Graechen said he applied the 4-3-3 formation for the first time and his players have little time to adapt.
“Of course Hoang Anh Gia Lai will play better in the next round and I will not change the strategy after only one match,” he said.
In the other six matches, three host teams lost while three other hosts were held with a draw.
The tenth round will kick off from April 17-19.
