Showing their mettle over the season, Hanoi F.C. have taken the V League 1 championship with two matches left to play, after a tough-fought 1-0 win over Song Lam Nghe F.C. on Thursday, VN Express reported.
After a goalless first half, Nguyen Than Chung scored a beauty in the 54th minute to help Hanoi overcome SLNA and win their first consecutive titles, and fifth league championship since 2010.
With the success, Hanoi F.C., managed by Chu Dinh Nghiem, have now taken 52 points from 24 matches, registering 15 victories, seven draws and just two losses.
Hanoi won their first V League title in 2010 and second in 2013, repeating the accomplishment in 2016 and 2018.
The title win helped Hanoi become the joint best club in Vietnamese history — a position they hold with Viettel F.C. It will also ensure a spot for the club in qualification games for the AFC Champions League 2020.
