National cups are something special for many teams and supporters. Today's match will decide whether it's An Giang or Long An that keep their silverware dream alive.
An Giang form and statsLast season, Giang's Vietnamese Cup journey ended in the 8th finals.
An Giang have played 11 V-League 2 games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 5-3-3 (wins-draws-losses).
Giang's previous game was a V-League 2 match also played at home, ending 2-0 versus Binh Dinh. The home side are looking to build on that result. Previous to that game, a V-League 2 home match hosting Binh Dinh in a game that was won 2-0.
A decent goal production from An Giang in their home games so far, with 17 goals from 11 league matches. An Giang are not conceding a lot of goals here at Sân vận động Long Xuyên in the league, averaging less than one per game. The total is 9 from 11 matches.
Long An form and statsLong was sent out of Vietnamese Cup in the 1st round last season.
There's been little loot from Long An's travels as they have only collected 6 points from 11 away games in the V-League 2. Long An only have 1 win to counter their 7 defeats and 3 draws. The travelling fans think it's time that their travel expenses are covered with some points now, as Long An have lost on their last two travels.
It might be tough going out on the road again for Long, facing their second straight away game. Especially as the previous game, ended with a defeat 1-2 versus Ha Noi T&T. It was a V-League 2 defeat before that one as the away game against Ha Noi T&T wasn't a success with a 1-2 loss.
The attacking power of Long An when travelling is not overwhelming with 7 goals scored from 11 league matches away. Long An struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 20 goals conceded from these games.
Head 2 HeadNumbers for the last four meetings between these two teams are: two wins for Giang, one draw and one win for Long An. Over 2,5 goals: two times; under 2,5 goals: two games.
