Hadipo Gustavo levelled for the hosts, but it was not enough.

Vu cam close in the 15th minute while David Htan of Shan United was unable to beat Binh Duong goalkeeper Tran Duc Cuong from 20m. 

Vu made the difference five minutes after the interval to cut in from the left wing and find the back of the net.

The visitors had chances to increase the gap but Le Tan Tai and Luiz failed to beat Myo Min Latt.

From a counter-attack from the right wing ball, Gustavo was given a free header to nod home.

Luiz finally converted one of many chances in the 85th minute.

Binh Duong are in third position and maintain hopes of advancing to the next round. Shan United have failed to win in three matches.

Binh Duong will host Shan United at home in two weeks time at the Go Dau Stadium.

In the other match in the group, Filipino Ceres Negros defeated Persija Jakarta of Indonesia 1-0 with a goal from Bienvenido Maranon in the ninth minute.
