Vietnam’s Binh Duong FC made it to the 2019 AFC ASEAN Zonal Final, where they will meet Hanoi FC in an all-Vietnamese game, after defeated Indonesia’s PSM Makassar on the away goals rule following a 2-2 aggregate draw on Wednesday.
Binh Duong FC were beaten 1-2 on the Indonesian turf, but their 1-0 lead earned in the first-leg game last week allowed the Vietnamese club to progress, setting up a showdown with domestic rivals Hanoi FC, who defeated the Philippines’ Ceres Negros FC a day earlier.
Wander Luiz took the lead for Binh Duong FC with his fifth goal of the campaign in the third minute of first-half stoppage time.
Binh Duong’s Tan Tai scored an own goal, and Aaron Evans made it 2-1 for Makassar in the second half.
But the hosts failed to score the decisive goal to cancel out the away-goal advantage of the Vietnamese side.
The ASEAN Zonal Final is scheduled to take place over two legs on July 31 and August 7, with the winner granted a place in the Inter-Zone Semi-finals.
