A 0-0 draw at Kim Il-Sung Stadium in Pyongyang was not enough for Hanoi to secure their first AFC Cup final appearance.

Vietnamese side went into the second leg knowing the odds were stacked against them to advance to the final. The Vietnamese side had to do what no team has ever done – defeat 4.25 on home soil.

But in the match yesterday, the V.League’s defending champions can not score the single goal they needed despite Van Quyet, Omar and Quang Hai making valuable chances.

The 0-0 draw in the second leg mean that the tie finish with the 2-2 draw on aggregate and the North Koreans advance to the final to face Al Ahed of Lebanon.
