17th September 2019

In true VFF fashion, the fixture dates for Rounds 25 and 26 (plus the Cup Semi-Final) have been changed at the last minute to accommodate Vietnam's World Cup Qualifying campaign.  Apparently the VFF have just realised that Vietnam will be playing the same time as the V-League is due to be played!!  Round 25 has been moved from 6th October to 19th October.  Round 26 (the final round) has been moved from a weekend to mid-week on 22nd or 23rd October.  There are no dates yet for either Cup Semi-Finals or the Final itself.  Once again the VFF and VPF have shown their complete incompetence and utter disregard for both the integrity of the V-League and their distaste for those who attend V-League games.

City saw their title aspirations all but disappear after drawing 1-1 away to Nam Định in front of a passionate home crowd of over 15,000.  Lê Hoàng Thiên's 85th minute equaliser securing a point for City when only three would suffice.
