Toyota round 19 saw big teams struggle taking three points. In the other hand, Muangthong United keep flying high in the league.

Siam Navy 0-0 Buriram United

The defending champions Buriram United drew another match thanks to the lack of scoring even though Diogo had returned and Bruno Moreira had joined the team.

The Thunder Castle were the better side but wasteful in front of goal, most notably in the 25th minute through Diogo – who also went very close to break the deadlock.

Navy were struggling to convert possession into chances although Anggello Machuca had a fine opportunity to net a goal from 30-yard free kick.

The scoreless game extended their draw run to four matches under head coach Afshin Ghotbi, and Buriram now dropped to the 6th on the log.

Bangkok United 1-1 Pattaya United
(Bangkok : Mario Djurovski 15’ / Pattaya : Junior Negrao 75’)

Bangkok United had to settle for a point in their Toyota Thai League top-spot battle as Pattaya United stopped the rot with 1-1 draw.

Bangkok started very well but failed to take an early lead as Teeratep Winothai missed a 5-yard scoring chance.

However, the hosts were rewarded for their endeavour when Sanwat Dechmit conceded well-timed cross on the edge of the area and Mario Djurovski buried it low past Pattaya’s keeper in fine fashion in the 15th minute.

Bangkok had a fine chance to score the second goal but Dragan Boskovic slipped it away by missing a penalty in the 17th minute.

In the other hand, it was Pattaya who managed to punish home team, when Bangkok failed to clear a 75th minute corner that Negrao headed an equaliser for visiting side, making the game end as a 1-1 draw.

Chonburi FC’s winning row was stopped at Suphanburi as they could not afford any goal on Wednesday night.

The home team had more clear chances to take the lead but Chonburi’s keeper Chanin Sae-ear had several fine saves keep the visitors from losing a goal.

Both sides had opportunities to take all three points late on as Chonburi winger Nurul Sriyankem saw his effort saved by former teammate Sinthaweechai while Suphanburi sniper Dellatorre’s shot did not go through the Sharks keeper.

Bangkok Glass FC 1-2 Muangthong United
(BG : Ariel Rodriguez 90+6’ / MTUTD : Teerasil Dangda 24’, Cleiton Silva 63’)

The Glass Rabbits faced a wretched 1-2 home defeat to Muangthong United as they failed to bounce back from behind in the biggest clash of mid-week Toyota Thai League on Wednesday.

The visitors broke the deadlock when Teerasil fortunately won the ball and netted an impressive goal in the 24th minute.

The game went by as both teams enjoy attacking but it was Muangthong who managed to score a second goal in the 63rd minute – Teerathon crossed a superb free kick for Cleiton to slot visiting side a 2-0 goal.

However, Bangkok Glass pulled one back as Ariel scored a penalty in added time but it was too late for them to equalise the Kirins.

Muangthong took the important victory and keep their leading safe for another week, plus six points gap between them and Bangkok United.
