Nam Dinh shares points with HAGL

In an exciting match at Pleiku Stadium during the 18th round of the V-League 2023/2024, Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) managed to secure a 1-1 draw against a determined Thanh Hoa FC, thanks largely to a heroic performance by goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung.

Bui Tien Dung was the standout performer, saving a penalty from Thanh Hoa’s Lucas Alves in the 15th minute, which set the tone for the rest of the match. His remarkable reflexes were on display again in the dying moments of the game when he made a crucial close-range save to deny Van Anh, preserving the draw for his team.

The game was intense, with both teams creating numerous scoring opportunities. HAGL found their breakthrough in the 71st minute when Jairo capitalized on a set-piece to put the home side ahead. This goal injected more urgency into Thanh Hoa’s play as they pressed for an equalizer.

Lucas Alves, looking to redeem himself after the earlier penalty miss, did just that five minutes later by heading in the equalizer, making amends and ensuring his team did not leave empty-handed. The goal was a result of persistent pressure from Thanh Hoa, who pushed hard against HAGL’s defenses in the latter stages of the match.

Elsewhere in the league, SLNA hosted Ho Chi Minh City FC in a goalless draw at Vinh Stadium, reflecting a tightly contested match where neither side could find the back of the net. The draw provided little relief to SLNA, who are battling relegation fears this season.

The point from the draw puts Thanh Hoa FC in a slightly better position in the league table, while HAGL continues to seek stability after a series of mixed results. The outcome of the match underscores the competitiveness of the league and the crucial role goalkeepers like Bui Tien Dung play in securing vital points for their teams.
