The 19th round match of V. League 1 between the top team, Hà Nội FC and low-ranked Nam Định FC, ended in a draw yesterday.
The match was held at Hà Nội FC’s home ground, Hàng Đẫy Stadium.
In the first half, the visiting players showcased both a firm defensive strategy and impressive counter-attacking capacity while the host did not hastily seek an opener. Both teams entered the break without any goals being scored.
The match was going in an unexpected direction when Nam Định scored three goals past Hà Nội early in the second half, with two goals by foreign forward Diogo Junior Pereira and one from defender Vũ Thế Vương.
The goals seemed to wake the host, creating one of the most impressive comebacks in the tournament this year.
The last ten minutes of the match saw three consecutive goals by Hà Nội – midfielder Nguyễn Quang Hải, forward Nguyễn Văn Quyết and defender Đoàn Văn Hậu, in the 81st, 86th and 88th minutes respectively, being the score equal. The host also defended well until the end of the game, and even had another opportunity to net a goal.
However, the match ended in a draw, bringing each team one point. Hà Nội FC still ranks top of the table while Nam Định ranks third from bottom, above Cần Thơ and Sài Gòn FC.
Elsewhere, Thanh Hóa and Quảng Ninh ended 1-1 while Sông Lam Nghệ An defeated Quảng Nam 2-1.
