Football Review HAGL vs Yokohama Asian Cup C1

10 May 2022 | 14:49 | Football

“For the first time in 17 years, we are playing at the highest level in Asia. It’s an opportunity for the players. HAGL study. We are here to show the best of us to our domestic audience. “coach Kiatisak Senamuang said before HAGL’s first match in Asian Cup – AFC Champions League 2022.

It’s a statement of knowing yourself, knowing the people of “Zico Thai”. The Asian Cup has always been a big playground for Vietnamese teams, and HAGL has the opportunity to go on to a group consisting of representatives from South Korea, Japan and Australia, the top football nations on the continent.

The Yamashiro team is not in good shape at the moment. HAGL can no longer play as effectively as how they won the 2021 V-League before the season was cancelled. The decline of the pillars and the adjustment of the game by coach Kiatisak caused HAGL to malfunction.

Football Review HAGL vs Yokohama Asian Cup - 1

HAGL is in poor condition.

HAGL’s only victory in the first five games of the season was a penalty shootout in the National Cup. Yamashiro kept 4 goals in a row, but HAGL’s biggest problem is the offense. Cong Phuong and his teammates only scored in one game.

Meanwhile, Yokohama F.Marinos are the defending J-League runners-up and the team led by coach Kevin Muscat are currently second in the Japanese top flight. Yokohama Mariners have scored a league-high 17 goals in their first 10 matches in the J-League this season. Even the representative of Japan is considered as one of the championship candidates.

In the face of such opponents, the home field is the biggest fulcrum of HAGL. There was a long queue of fans buying tickets at Thong Nhat Stadium, which shows that Sanseong, although not Pleiku Stadium, has received a lot of attention from fans. In addition, the fact that Yokohama F.Marinos just arrived in Vietnam a few days ago may also prevent the team from fully adapting to weather and field factors.

“The Yokohama Mariners have a very challenging schedule. We had a lot of difficulties on the training ground due to the weather, but we worked hard to overcome it and enjoy our time in Vietnam.” The visiting coach Muscat said.
