Song Lam Nghe An (SLNA) scored twice in a space of seven minutes to beat Dong Thap 2-0 in the 21st round of the V-League at Vinh Stadium yesterday, July 25.


Despite being the away team, Dong Thap had begun the match feeling confident after a recent string of wins. The team hoped a win propel them to the top of the rankings.


But SLNA shot those dreams down, earning the victor’s three point to climb out of the middle position in the rankings.


SLNA’s Quang Tinh opened the score in the fourth minute, shooting past goalie Tan Truong of Dong Thap. Motivated by the early goal, SLNA players launched a series of attacks, scoring the second goal in the 11th minute thanks to Trong Nghia.


After the half-time break, the visitors raised their hopes of levelling the score when SLNA’s Huy Hoang received a second yellow card for a clumsy tackle. However, Dong Thap’s attacks were repelled by the hosts’ defenders with both teams failing to score in the second half.


At other V-League matches, Da Nang tied with Ninh Binh 1-1 at Chi Lang Stadium, while two-time champions Hoang Anh Gia Lai lost to Navibank Sai Gon 0-1 at Pleiku Stadium.
