Hoàng Anh Gia Lai, under the guidance of Kiatisuk Senamuang, continues to display a lackluster performance in the pre-season tournament leading up to the V-League 2023/24 season.
6686_After suffering defeats to Da Nang (0-2) and Quang Nam (2-3), fans were hoping for a better showing from Hoàng Anh Gia Lai against Quy Nhơn Bình Định. However, once again, the team from Pleiku disappointed their supporters with their disjointed play and lack of focus in crucial moments.

The reality on the field revealed that although Hoàng Anh Gia Lai controlled possession more than their opponents, their attacking chances lacked sharpness. Even when they had a few opportunities, the home team’s strikers appeared rushed and lacked composure to penetrate Minh Hoàng’s goal.
6686_On the other hand, Quy Nhơn Bình Định chose to surrender the initiative and wait for counter-attacking opportunities. This strategy gradually paid off towards the end of the match, as Kiatisuk Senamuang’s players began to tire. In the 87th minute, after several missed chances, Marlon opened the scoring for Quy Nhơn Bình Định with a precise close-range shot. That turned out to be the final result of the match, crowning Bùi Đoàn Quang Huy’s team as the champions with 2 wins and 1 draw, while Hoàng Anh Gia Lai finished fourth with 3 consecutive losses.
In the previous match, Quảng Nam defeated Đà Nẵng 3-1 thanks to goals from Văn Nam, Văn Trạng, and Thế Tài. Đà Nẵng’s consolation goal was scored by Văn Long.
