Ho Chi Minh City look to extend the gap at the top of the table when they face struggling Quang Nam this weekend.

Despite playing away, Chung Hae-song’s side are very confident about collecting another three point, as the hosts have only managed one win from their eight games this season. Furthermore, all of Quang Nam’s attackers are not in good condition and seem to be low on morale, so it will be very difficult for them to play against the league leaders.

Elsewhere, second-placed Hanoi FC face a tough test when playing at Thanh Hoa’s stadium. Despite the fact that the hosts are in the relegation zone, the side’s confidence has had a boost after snatching their first win under the new owners.

In addition, Hanoi have struggled away from home this season, with only 1 win after 4 encounters on the road. The defending champions must rectify their poor away form if they wish to stop Ho Chi Minh City from increasing their current one-point lead atop the V.League table.

Meanwhile, Viettel will face Hoang Anh Gia Lai at Hang Day stadium in a match that is likely to attract a lot of fans. Bottom-placed team Sanna Khanh Hoa will have the chance to recover when they face SHB Danang in the Central Vietnam Derby.
