Buriram United 0-0 Bangkok United


Bangkok United wasted the chance to move closer to top spot after drawing 0-0 against Buriram United in the biggest Thai league’s clash at I-Mobile Stadium.

Former Buriram forward, Gilberto Macena, had a chance to bring his new club Bangkok United to front but his header was just wide of the right post.

Buriram began to respond by creating convincing chances of their own. Diogo’s shot flew over the post before Suree pounced on a loose ball to strike just over the crossbar.

The game ended with 0-0 draw. There was no shortage of talent or creativity, but that lack of conviction meant that the game remained goalless after the final whistle despite each team should have scored at least once.
