HÀ NỘI — Captain Nguyễn Văn Quyết converted a penalty into a goal to help Hà Nội FC beat hosts Bangkok United 1-0 in the Preliminary Stage 2 tie of the AFC Champions League yesterday in Bangkok.
Striker Ganiyu Bolayi Oseni was fouled in the box in the 87th minute of the match at the Thammasat Stadium.
The visiting side was awarded a penalty and Quyết scored with a straight shot to the left corner of goalkeeper Michael Falkesgaard.
Earlier, Oseni, Đỗ Duy Mạnh and Papa Omar Faye also tested Falkesgaard but the Danish-Filipino goalie saved their shots with ease.
Bangkok United dominated the second half but could not capitalise on their chances with Tristan Do and Nelson Bonilla both failing to find the target.
Hà Nội are through to the playoffs and will face Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng on February 19. — VNS
