Perhaps a welcome break from league football as Nam Dinh & Hoang Anh Gia Lai face off to decide who makes it to next stage of the Cup. All the pre-match information is available here!
Hoang Anh Gia Lai have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1000 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.
Nam Dinh form and statsLast season their Cup adventure ended in the quarter-finals.
1 victory, 0 draws and 0 defeats. That’s what Nam Dinh have to build on here in the V-League. Hopes of three in a row are alive for Dinh after consecutive victories at their own ground.
Nam Dinh's last game was hosting Ha Noi T&T and winning 2-1. Before that game, the 2-1 home victory against Ha Noi T&T.
It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Nam Dinh at home in the league. 2 on target and 1 scored by the opposition; from 1 match.
Hoang Anh Gia Lai form and statsThey also participated in Cup last season. This ended in the quarter-finals.
The visitors are W0-D1-L0 on the road this term. That's in the V-League.
It's another away game for the visitors, as they travelled to Viettel in their previous outing. The V-League match ended in a draw 3-3. A home win before that, celebrating 1-0 vs Than Quang Ninh.
Drawing 3-3 against Viettel after 90 minutes last time out was very disappointing after leading the match 2-0. Their manager T. Lee needs to evaluate why the team couldn't defend their result. As you can tell from the result, the match against Viettel was as crazy as a clown in a village circus. Great fun for the neutral supporter with 6 goals, will the fun continue today? As mentioned above, Hoang drew the match against Viettel. Manager T. Lee brought on Nguyễn Văn Anh to rescue the draw from a losing position and it worked.
It's early days yet, but Hoang Anh Gia Lai has scored 3 and conceded 3 goals from their travels in the league so far (1 game).
Head 2 HeadHead-2-head stats last ten meetings: zero - one - nine (Dinh wins - draws - Hoang Anh Gia Lai wins). As for goals, six matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), four had two or less.
