Head coach U Min Tun Lin’s Yangon United lined up with key players including Captain Kyi Lin, Ernest Aboubacar Congo, Mg Mg Win, Mg Mg Lwin and Emmanuel.
Meanwhile, head coach U Kyaw Min of Southern Myanmar used his favourite players Captain and keeper Pyae Phyo Aung, Aung Kyaw Htwe, Aung Khine Tun and Sai Zin Win. Yangon forced to play from the kickoff, and the team faced some difficulties to score as Southern Myanmar played with a tough defence. Nonetheless, Yangon achieved a penalty kick at 18 minutes as Southern Myanmar’s defenders played roughly in the opponents’ penalty area. The penalty was successfully shot to the right corner of the post by Yangon United captain Kyi Lin to grab the team’s first goal.
After the first goal, Yangon United got nearly goal chances but Southern Myanmar keeper and defenders blocked and intercepted every attempt of the Yangon strikers. But Yangon got another leading goal at 44 minutes, and it was scored by free-kick star Mg Mg Lwin, and he made a superb free-kick to the right post of the Southern Myanmar goalie. The first half was led by Yangon with 2-0 ahead of Southern Myanmar. Southern Myanmar tried to get their consolation goals in the second half with an opening attack. But Yangon United shifted their massive play plus counterattack to secure their winning result. With a surprise pass, a third leading goal was found by Emmanuel at 60 minutes markwhen Kaung Htet Soe delivered the ball towards him. At the final whistle, Yangon managed to seal the 3-1 victory over Southern Myanmar. With the win, Yangon United earned 29 points after 13 plays, 9 wins, 2 draws, and 2 losses and the team is currently standing in third place while Southern Myanmar standing in the bottom with no win.—Lynn Thit (Tgi)
