In the second half Buriram United dominatedthe game, but they also found chances hard to come by. Their best opening arrived in the 71st minute when Anan Buasan headed a very close goal but Chainat’s goalkeeper made an incredible super-save, swapping away the defending champion’s hope to take the lead.
Chainat almost won the game, Japanese striker Sho Shimoji netted in added time but the doubtful offside call from the assistant referee refused three points of the visitors.
