VTV.vn - Quang Nam FC won their first point in the 2019 V.League after holding reigning champions Hanoi FC to a 1-1 draw in their second-round encounter at Tam Ky stadium on March 2.

Taking on a tough opponent who were highly excited following two consecutive wins in recent times, the home side proactively chose to defend solidly and deploy fast counterattacks aimed at producing a surprise.

The caution of both sides saw the first half go by with few noticeable opportunities created, excluding a shot at goal by Quang Nam forward Claudecir.

Four minutes into the second half, Quang Nam’s counterattacking strategy bore fruit, as captain Dinh Thanh Trung broke past the Hanoi defenders before beating keeper Van Cong to put his team in front.

After the unexpected goal, Hanoi FC increased the pressure in seek of an equaliser. However, the guests were somewhat impatient, enabling the host team to produce dangerous counterattacks. Quang Nam could have scored additional goals if Huy Hung and Dos Santos had been more accurate with their finishes from such situations.

Quang Nam were to regret their missed chances as Hanoi FC successfully restored parity in the last few minutes of the match. With five official minutes to play, Pape Omar set up Hoang Vu Samson to find the back of the net to rescue the away team.

With the result, Quang Nam FC earned their first point of the 2019 season following their opening 0-2 defeat against Song Lam Nghe An. Meanwhile, despite still maintaining an unbeaten run over the past three games, Hanoi FC’s excitement was lessened following two wide-margin wins recently.
