This is the 1st round of Vietnam Cup this season.
Dong Thap are from Vietnam First Division. They sat bottom 4th last season.
As for XM Hai Phong FC, they come from Vietnam League, which is a higher division than Vietnam First Division. But they were just barely safe from relegation last term.
There is not a big gap in both sides’ overall quality.
But now the AH line is -1.00 for the visitors, which is fully in favor of XM Hai Phong FC. Besides, XM Hai Phong FC are superior in both teams’ past encounters.
So XM Hai Phong FC are expected to win this away game.
