Becamex Binh Duong face V-League leaders Ha Noi T&T in a 16th round crucial match this weekend on their home turf Go Dau Stadium.
HCM CITY — Becamex Binh Duong face V-League leaders Ha Noi T&T in a 16th round crucial match this weekend on their home turf Go Dau Stadium.
That game could potentially be a make-or-break event for the former two – time champion's title ambitions this season.
Binh Duong have not won a V-League title since it won two trophies in a row in 2007 and 2008.
Their ambition this year has been hurt as a streak of four defeats has driven them to seventh place with just 20 points.
Binh Duong have no choice but to defeat the visiting 2010 V-League champion, which are 10 points ahead of the home team, if the club want to keep their title hope alive.
A loss means a full stop for Binh Duong, which appointed a South Korean new coach last week with hopes for a change of fortune, as the gap has increased to 13 points and the V-League has 10 games to go.
Although there is a world of difference in recent form between the two clubs, Ha Noi T&T, which have been unbeaten since the round seven, could not easily leave Binh Duong stadium with three points.
Regardless of its poor form, Binh Duong have enough qualified players to match the visiting team, which won 1-0 in the first leg with Nguyen Van Quyet's only goal. — VNS
