In the semi-finals, SLNA beat Quang Nam 7-4 on aggregate while Binh Duong edged SHB Da Nang 5-2 on aggregate.

But SLNA went in front again just three minutes later off Danko as Quang Nam then found the second equaliser off Phan Thanh Hung’s header ten minutes to the end.
A late strike from substitute striker Ho Phuc Tịnh gave SLNA their third goal before Nguyen Van Hau slammed in late for the 3-3 draw.
In the meantime, Becamex Binh Duong had a strike from Nguyen Anh Duc to thank for their win over Da Nang.
Earlier, Da Nang had grabbed the opener through Do Merlo in the 21st minute before To Van Vu cancelled it out just seven minutes later.
