HÀ NỘI — Long An will play Viettel in the V. League’s play-off match tomorrow to avoid relegation.
The team is promised a big bonus of VNĐ1 billion (US$44,500) if they go home with a win, according to Long An Football Club managers.
Long An finished this year’s premier league at the 13th position among 14 teams.
Their key midfielder Hoàng Lâm may not play because of injury.
Former national team coach Henrique Calisto was invited to be a consultant to Long An in this game.
Viettel, meanwhile, rank second in the First Division and have a chance to jump to the top of the national league.
Their young members are rated not as good as Long An, but they are all at their peak for the upcoming event.
The match will be organised in the neutral stadium of Chi Lăng in Đà Nẵng City. — VNS
