Muangthong United 2-1 Sukhothai FC
(Cleiton Silva 47’ & 90+1’, Diouf Bireme 85’)
Cleiton Silva scored in added time to extend Muangthong United’s eight-match victory run and end Sukhothai’s five-game unbeatable record.
The Fire Bats were caught out early in the second half as the hosts broke from deep to snatch the lead, thanks to Cleiton Silva.
The visitors scored an equalizer with Diouf Bireme slotting the ball through Kawin in the 85th minute.
The game tended to end as a draw but Sarach Yuyen whipped in a superb free-kick for Cleiton to head a victory goal for home side during added time.
Muangthong still sits at the leading position after grabbing three precious points, while Sukhothai stays at the fifth place on the log.
Bangkok United 6-1 Sisaket FC
(Jaycee John 9’ & 77’, Dragan Boskovic 30’ & 69’, Mario Gjurovski 64’, Leandro Tatu 90’ / Adeforalin Durosinmi 67’)
Bangkok United ran riot at Sisaket to hand the visitors the worst Toyota Thai League defeat ever.
“Jojo” Jaycee John and Dragan Boskovic made it 2-0 before the break but the floodgates opened in the second.
Bangkok obviously dominated the game and earned another goal, when Mario Gjurovski fortunately won the ball from the opponents, scoring the third goal for home side in the 64th minute, before Sukhothai’s Adeforalin Durosinmi netted the 1-3 goal three minutes later.
However, two goals in eight minutes from Jojo, Dragan Boskovic embarrassed the visitors before Leandro Tatu made it 6-1 in the last minute of the game.
With this win, Mano Polking’s lads maintain two-point gap between them and Muangthong as they are at the second from top spot.
Bangkok Glass FC 0-2 Buriram United
(Go Seul-ki 37’, Anawin Jujeen 83’)
Ten-man Buriram defeated Bangkok Glass 2-0, climbing to third in Toyota Thai League in the Sunday’s super big match.
The champions faced a difficult task as high-flying Glass Rabbits are a strong side. The visitors, however, appeared buoyant, with Go Seul-ki scoring the opening goal in the 37th minute.
The game was exciting as both teams performed well, having chances to net more goals but the first half ended with 1-0 score in a favor of Buriram.
The second half was still a joy to watch and more frustrating. The Thunder Castle found the second goal in last ten minutes, when Tunez passed up a superb chance for Anawin Jujeen to hammer Bangkok Glass 2-0. Buriram’s Surat Suka was sent off after collecting a second yellow card.
Buriram kept on course to achieve a top-four finish as they surpassed Bangkok Glass to the third place, while the Glass Rabbits dropped to the fourth on the table.
