Besides noticeable games such as Thanh Hoa Hoa guessing at Hoa Lu against V.Ninh Binh , Dong Nai against HAGL , B.Binh Duong hosting visitors V.

The confrontation between Ha Noi T & T and SLNA is always exciting. Last season two teams drew 1-1 at Vinh stadium. However, in the visiting to Hang Day later, the mistake of a confusing defensive caused Ha Noi T & T 2-6 defeat. Certainly Coach Phan Thanh Hung and his players determined to settle up last

If wanting to avoid the crisis which Binh Duong has faced from the early season, they had to get 3 points against V. Hai Phong. Three consecutive failure against Saigon Xuan Thanh , SHB . Da Nang, SLNA that caused Hai Phong representative in stalement at the bottom of standing table. Hosting at Go Dau stadium is an excellent for B.Binh Duong overcome the crisis
1-0 defeat by Thanh Hoa in 3rd round will be compensated with 3 points over Dong Nai on Bien Hoa stadium.
However, that goal will certainly not be easy for HAGL.
