HO CHI MINH CITY (28 March 2023) – Sahako FC and Sanvinest Khanh Hoa have taken the lead after just three matches into the new HDBank Vietnam Futsal League 2023 season.
In the match that was played in Ho Chi Minh City, defending champions Sahako crushed Tan Hiep Hung 5-1 as Sanvinest Khanh Hoa edged Hanoi 1-0 to set the pace.

Nhat Trung then added the third goal in the 11th minute, before Tan Dong narrowed the gap for Tan Hiep Hung two minutes later.
The score was 4-1 at the break when Sahako goalkeeper Quoc Tam took advantage of a failed power-play to put the ball into the net.
