Cong Viettel advances to National Cup quarterfinals, CAHN mourns

Exciting Capital Derby Ends in Victory for The Cong Viettel

The highly anticipated capital derby between The Cong Viettel and Hanoi Police unfolded with intensity right from the start. Coach Kiatisuk Senamuang’s squad showed early initiative, aiming to avenge their recent 0-3 defeat in the V-League. Despite their efforts, The Cong Viettel’s defensive approach posed challenges for Nguyen Quang Hai and his team, with goalkeeper Quang The Tai resilient in denying any breakthroughs. Conversely, Filip Nguyen showcased his skills by keeping CAHN’s goal safe amid several threats. The first half concluded goalless as both sides struggled to find the back of the net.

As the game progressed, Hanoi Police continued to press forward, but it was The Cong Viettel who capitalized on their opportunities. In the 63rd minute, Pedro Henrique Oliveira Silva seized a momentous counterattack chance, eluding the defense before comfortably slotting the ball past Filip Nguyen to break the deadlock. Despite a potential equalizer from Danh Trung, disallowed due to an offside call, The Cong Viettel maintained their lead.

With time running out, Coach Kiatisuk Senamuang urged his players to intensify their offensive efforts. However, CAHN’s lack of precision in critical moments hindered their chances. Ultimately, The Cong Viettel emerged victorious with a narrow 1-0 win, securing their spot in the National Cup quarter-finals.
