HÀ NỘI — Bình Dương will meet Hà Nội in the final of the National U21 Football Championships on Saturday.
The match will be held at Tự Do Stadium in Huế.
Hà Nội are very confident and eager to meet Bình Dương after beating them 2-1 in the qualifying round.
Bình Dương beat defending champions Hoàng Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) 4-1 in a penalty shootout in the semi-finals on Thursday.
Faced with a young, fast-moving team, Bình Dương played on the counter-attack and managed to stifle their opponents.
Bình Dương goalie Thanh Tuấn was awarded man of the match for his performance.
The team from the capital beat Viettel 1-0 in the other semi-final.
The event attracted the participation of 18 teams to compete in the annual event. They were divided into four groups and competed in a round robin format. The best seven teams reached the final round alongside hosts Thừa Thiên - Huế.
Last year, HAGL beat Viettel 3-0 in the final held at Bình Dương Stadium to take the title for the first time. — VNS
