Outcomes of LS V-League 2 round 11 can be predicted

All matches of round 11 of the Vietnamese National Football First League (LS V-League 2) will be played at 3:30pm on September 30. The top five teams have already got the tickets to stage 2 of the tournament. However, they also need to accumulate points to compete for the championship. 
 
Out of six matches in round 10, only the one between Binh Dinh and Sanna Khanh Hoa – Bien Vietnam (S.KH-BVN) ended in a draw. The results of other matches were not surprising when most the victories were from the strong teams. Specifically, Ba Ria-Vung Tau (BR-VT) won Fico-YTL Tay Ninh Cement 4-0; Pho Hien defeated Dong Thap 1-0; Binh Phuoc had a 3-2 victory against Can Tho. Only fifth-placed An Giang lost three points to their direct competitor, sixth-placed Bong da Hue. After round 10, top five positions on the table of LS V-League 2 include BR-VT (21 points), Pho Hien (20 points), S.KH-BVN (17 points), Binh Dinh (17 points), and An Giang (15 points). These are also the five qualified teams to stage 2.

Bong da Hue are level on points with An Giang but are sitting at sixth position due to goal difference. Besides, Bong da Hue has been facing a competitive pressure from seventh-placed Binh Phuoc (14 points). The match between Bong da Hue and Binh Phuoc at Tu Do Stadium is considered the focus of round 11 and promises to be dramatic and attractive.  A lose to Binh Phuoc can see Bong da Hue being relegated to the group of teams who have to fight to avoid relegation. However, with their quite good performances against three strong teams in the recent matches, a draw against Binh Phuoc is not a difficult task for Bong da Hue.
 
Although the outcomes of round 11 can be predicted, they won’t probably affect the quality of the competitions. According to the amended regulations of LS V-League 2 announced in May, the final points that determine the winner of the season will be accumulated throughout two stages. Therefore, round 11 will be an opportunity for the top-half teams to accumulate points.
 
Fifth-placed An Giang are predicted to have an easy match against Can Tho, who are sitting at the bottom of the table. S.KH-BVN also expect a comfortable match at their home ground against Dong Thap, who are second from the bottom. Having experiencing many difficulties recently, the team of Khanh Hoa had a draw with Binh Dinh in round 10. A home win in round 11 can help to revive the confidence of S.KH-BVN players.
 
Meanwhile, many fans are waiting for the clash between Pho Hien and Binh Dinh, the two favorites for the championship title of 2020 LS V-League 2, to see if Pho Hien can remain as the only unbeaten team in stage 1.
