Ha Noi T&T ousted from AFC Champions League

Viet Nam champions Ha Noi T&T were eliminated from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League after losing 0-2 to Thai Premier League runners-up Muangthong United in the second play-off round on Saturday.

Macedonian midfielder Mario Durovski opened the scoring for Muangthong, who held their AFC Champions League debut last season, nine minutes before half-time at Thunderdome Stadium.

And after Australian defender Sam Gallagher was sent-off for T&T just before the hour mark, former England international Jay Bothroyd added a second goal after 62 minutes, having provided the assist for Durovski to secure Muangthong's meeting with Melbourne at Kardinia Park this weekend.

T&T eventually finished the game with nine men after Nigerian striker Samson Olaley was sent off in stoppage time following a clash with Muangthong substitute Atit Daosawang, who was also dismissed by Korean referee Kim Dong-jin.

"We played well for the entire game, but at the end we could not win," said T&T coach Phan Thanh Hung, who will now see his team take their place in Group F of the AFC Cup alongside Arema Indonesia, Malaysia's Selangor and Maziya Sports&Recreation from the Maldives. — VNS
