All the four goals were scored in the second half with Nguyen Quang Hai making the opener two minutes after the interval.

Do Hung Dung, Nguyen Van Quyet and Oseni Ganiyu Bolaji scored one each in the last 10 minutes of the game.

The ninth win of the defending champions lifted them from No 4 to No 2 with 35 points, two less than FLC Thanh Hoa on the top.

On the other side, Long An received their 15th defeat and have plunged to the bottom, with just nine points so far.

Quang Nam, the dark horse, tied with former winner Becamex Binh Duong 1-1 in an earlier match. They were down to the third position with as many points as Ha Noi but having smaller goal difference.

Quang Nam, however, suffered big loss when their foreign player Thiago suffered a broken nose and will be sidelined for a month. The Brazilian thus ended his season earlier than expected.

Sanna Khanh Hoa dumped Hoang Anh Gia Lai 4-2 to step closer to the top three, with a two-point gap, which they will need to fill in their next fixtures.

Lam Ti Phong scored a hat-trick and Nguyen Hoang Quoc Chi’s goal was sandwiched between these goals.

Marcelino Motta Henrique and Nguyen Cong Phuong scored for Hoang Anh Gia Lai, but their efforts were not enough to save their team.

Hoang Anh Gia Lai are now third from the bottom. They have only two points more than their nearest rival Can Tho, who drew with Quang Ninh Coal in a goalless tie yesterday.

Song Lam Nghe An secured their fifth win of the season after beating Sai Gon FC 2-0.

Tran Phi Son, who is considering offers from Japanese clubs, opened the score in the 14th minute. His teammate Olaha Michael Onyedikachi sealed the win with a penalty shootout in additional time.

In other matches, HCM City tied with SHB Da Nang 1-1; FLC Thanh Hoa had the same result in a game versus Hai Phong on home soil.
