Muangthong United finally slipped when they lost to Ratchaburi FC last weekend, prompting worry as Bangkok United narrowed the gap.
Ratchaburi FC 3-1 Muangthong United
(Ratchaburi : Heberty Fernanades 7’, Yannick Djalo 58’, Pathomchai Sueasakul 70’ / MTUTD : Cleiton Silva 29’)
The Kirins sustained a wretched 1-3 away defeat to Ratchaburi FC at Mitr Phol Stadium and were finally stopped after a 14-game winning streak.
A mistake from Muangthong’s keeper Kawin Thamsatchanan gifted Heberty a chance to open the scoring for the home side 7 minutes into the game. The Brazilian sniper had fulfilled his legacy with a farewell goal before moving to Saudi Arabia.
The game became increasingly open as Muangthong wanted to snatch an equalising goal. The visitors were rewarded when Cleiton Silva’s header hit the net in the 29th minute of the first half.
In the second half, Yannick Djalo’s doubtful-offside gave the host a 58th minute lead again before Pathomchai added another one for Ratchaburi in the 70th minute.
Despite the exciting display, two red cards were shown when Ratchaburi’s Takuya Murayama had a fight with Muangthong youngster Tristan Do – both were sent off in added time of the game.
Muangthong United still sit at the leading position after the defeat while the home side surpassed Buriram to take over the 4th position.
Super Power Samutprakan 0-2 Bangkok United
(Bangkok UTD : Dragan Boskovic 81’ (PEN.), Mario Djurovski 88’)
Bangkok United celebrated a comfortable victory 2-0 over 10-man Super Power as they scored two goals in last ten minutes of the game.
The first half went by with exciting performance from both sides, as the host managed to keep their display on par with visiting side but the first half finished scoreless.
It was Bangkok who took the lead, when Dragan Boskovic netted a penalty in the 81st minute, before Super Power’s Wanmai was sent off four minutes later.
The home side’s situation went from bad to worse when Mario Djurovski scored an impressive free kick for Bangkok, pushing his side to 2-0 lead in the 88th minute.
In added time, Super Power slipped a fine chance to score their first goal when Komenan’s penalty regretfully shot wide over the post.
With this win, Bangkok United edge closer to top spot as there are now just three points between them and league leaders Muangthong United.
