Becamex Binh Duong moved three points behind V.League 1 leaders Thanh Hoa on Sunday after claiming a 3-1 win over Dong Tam Long An at the Go Dau Stadium.
The hosts edged ahead after 24 minutes through a strike from Nguyen Anh Duc, who netted again four minutes before halftime to put them firmly in control of the tie.
The contest was then effectively ended in the 59th minute when Huynh Kesley Alves put Binh Duong three goals to the good, although Long An did manage a consolation six minutes before the end when Do Dinh Vinh grabbed his first goal of the campaign.
The result was enough to see Binh Duong reduce the gap between them and Thanh Hoa to just three points, although the league leaders have a game in hand.
Over at the Cua Ong Stadium, Than Quang Ninh got back to winning ways following last weekend’s heavy 6-3 loss to QNK Quang Nam by beating bottom side Hung Vuong An Giang 2-0.
Vu Minh Tuan fired the hosts ahead in the 32nd minute, before Huynh Kesley Alves added a second eight minutes later to wrap up the three points.
The result leaves An Giang still looking for their first win of the campaign, while Quang Ninh climbed one spot up to fourth on the table.
