Hai Long’s second goal came 20 minutes later, at the 55th minute, further solidifying his team’s advantage with a powerful header from a corner kick.

Despite being two goals down, Da Nang refused to give up. They pushed back with vigor, and their efforts were rewarded when Quang Vinh scored in the 76th minute. His goal revived hopes for the visiting team, but despite their best efforts and a few close calls in the final minutes, Da Nang could not find the equalizer.

This match was one of the two quarterfinals featuring the use of VAR technology, helping ensure fairness and accuracy in decision-making by the referees, which was particularly significant in a couple of contentious moments during the game.

Fans of Hanoi FC and Vietnamese football now eagerly await the semifinal clash, as their team looks to continue their quest for the National Cup trophy, building on the momentum from this crucial victory.
