Vietnam's top Derby takes place before the V-League returns
To prepare for the return of Vietnamese football, Hanoi will play a friendly match with Viettel.
Recently, VPF has sent an official announcement fixing the return date of the V-League 2020 as well as the matches in the National Cup will start from this September. The teams are preparing very urgently to regain the rhythm of playing and enter the important phase of the season.
Hanoi is also not out there when they have been together for 2 weeks. And to heat up the device, Hanoi will play a friendly match with Viettel through two matches. The first was a guest match at Hoa Lac on September 2, and then three days later the two teams met again at Hang Day.
To ensure the prevention of the Covid-19 epidemic, the match will be played without spectator. In May, when the tournament had to stop due to disease, the two teams also arranged a friendly match. These are useful matches to help players find their most fulfilling state.
At this time, Coach Chu Dinh Nghiem is able to feel secure about his forces when the pillars like Omar, Van Dai, Tuan Anh are fully recovered from injury. Most notably is the return of Van Hau from the Netherlands.
This player can play well at the center and left. It is likely that Van Hau will be brought into the center of defense by coach Chu Dinh Nghiem because Van Dung is playing very well in the left wing corridor. Viettel still maintains training from the epidemic break and closed camp completely.
Viettel and Hanoi both reached the quarterfinals of the National Cup. However, only Viettel can use foreign soldiers because the opponent is the team in the V-League. The matches in the quarterfinals of the National Cup will start from September 11-12.
