Viettel’s victory causes CAHN collapse; Kiatisuk struggles with nightmare

3 Key Takeaways from CAHN’s Loss to Viettel in the National Cup

On the evening of March 13, coach Kiatisuk Senamuang’s team suffered a bitter 0-1 defeat to Viettel in the National Cup 1/8 round, signaling an early exit from the tournament. This disappointing result came just four days after CAHN Club was outperformed by Viettel with a 3-0 victory in the V-League. The recent duel revealed three key takeaways.

Firstly, Kiatisuk struggled to adapt his playing style, with CAHN appearing deadlocked and lacking creativity despite adjustments that included deploying up to 5 midfielders. Even star player Nguyen Quang Hai seemed subdued compared to the previous encounter, failing to create significant chances against goalkeeper Quang The Tai.

Secondly, Pedro Henrique Oliveira Silva emerged as CAHN’s tormentor, scoring the only goal for Viettel and securing their progression. The Brazilian forward showcased his threat by breaking the offside trap and calmly slotting the ball past goalkeeper Nguyen Filip, a repeat of his performance in the V-League clash where he also found the back of the net.

Lastly, coach Nguyen Duc Thang’s tactical acumen shone through as Viettel overcame both CAHN and their own V-League struggles under his guidance. Thang’s scientific defensive approach coupled with quick counter-attacks left CAHN floundering, highlighting his superiority over counterpart Kiatisuk in strategic efficiency.

In summary, CAHN’s early Cup exit and recent V-League setbacks point to a troubling trend that Kiatisuk must address urgently. Meanwhile, Viettel’s resurgence under Thang’s stewardship bodes well for their future prospects, with Pedro Henrique’s predatory instincts and Thang’s tactical prowess proving decisive. As the dust settles on this encounter, CAHN must regroup while Viettel can look forward to continued success under Thang’s leadership.
