Song Lam Nghe An faces relegation play-off threat

Song Lam Nghe An is at a disadvantage compared to Hoang Anh Gia Lai and Ha Tinh, and coach Pham Anh Tuan’s team faces the risk of having to play a relegation play-off to stay in the V-League.

In the 25th round of the V-League 2023/2024, Song Lam Nghe An managed to secure a point at home against Ha Tinh, keeping their hopes alive to avoid the relegation play-off. However, with only 27 points from 25 matches, Song Lam Nghe An is two points behind Hoang Anh Gia Lai and Ha Tinh, who are just above them on the table.

To avoid the play-off, Song Lam Nghe An must win against The Cong Viettel at Hang Day Stadium in the final round. Besides securing a victory, they will also have to rely on the results of the two simultaneous matches: Ha Tinh vs. Thanh Hoa and Hoang Anh Gia Lai vs. Hai Phong. Song Lam Nghe An’s survival depends on Ha Tinh or Hoang Anh Gia Lai failing to secure favorable results.

The situation is challenging for Song Lam Nghe An because defeating The Cong Viettel is a tough task. The military team has been in excellent form and aims to maintain their fourth position at the end of the season.

In contrast, Thanh Hoa and Hai Phong have little to play for in the V-League 2023/2024, theoretically making it easier for Ha Tinh and Hoang Anh Gia Lai, especially since both teams will play at home in the final round. Consequently, the scenario where Song Lam Nghe An has to play a relegation play-off to stay in the V-League is quite likely.
