2020 AFC Cup: Lao Toyota 0-2 Ho Chi Minh City: A dominant victory for the Vietnamese side

Lao Toyota submitted to Ho Chi Minh City’s overwhelming power with a 0-2 loss in matchday 3 of the 2020 AFC Cup group F.

Ho Chi Minh City demonstrated their superiority from the beginning and had a clear chance right in the 2nd minute with a close-range strike by Amildo Balde from a gorgeous delivery by Nguyen Cong Phuong but it was denied by Lao Toyota’s goalkeeper Soukthavy Soundala.

Just ten minutes later, Amildo Balde had an even better opportunity with an open goal in front of him but he unbelievably shot the ball wide from inside the 5-yard box.

Wasting too many chances, Ho Chi Minh City could not break the deadlock in the whole first half.

In the second part of the game, the home team still showed little resistance but the change only come with the appearance of “super-sub” Nguyen Xuan Nam in the 61st minute, who has just scored two goals to earn Ho Chi Minh City the win in their inaugural match at the V.League 1 after coming from the bench.

Just over 10 minutes in, Nguyen Xuan Nam again worked his magic and netted with a powerful strike from inside the box. He completed his double in the 90th minute and sealed the 2-0 victory for the visitors.
