Hong Kong, August 15 (QNA) – Haiphong FC will take on K-League side Incheon United in the 2023/24 AFC Champions League 2023/24 playoffs next week after the Vietnamese club fought back to defeat Hong Kong Rangers 4-1 in extra-time at Mongkok Stadium on Tuesday.
the official website of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said Yuri Mamute scored twice in extra-time while Martin Lo was also on target to secure a
comeback win for the V.League 1 side, who needed a late equaliser from Nguyen Tuan Anh to see off the Hong Kong side after Yumemi Kanda had given the hosts a 41st minute lead.
The win takes Haiphong into the meeting with the club from Korea Republic in Incheon next Tuesday after the superior fitness of Chu Dinh Nghiems side, currently mid-way through their domestic campaign, paid off against a Rangers side playing their first game of the season. (QNA)
