Thai Premier League – Match 31
Goals: [BUR] Tunez (34′)
The storyline was the same once again as Muangthong United fell to Buriram United for the 7th time by a scoreline of 0-1. Yet no one will be talking about Buriram’s dominance on the evening, as MTU out-shot Buriram 16-5 (with shots on goal 9-2), and enjoyed 56% possession to Buriram’s 44%. But Buriram’s scrappy goal in the first half would turn out to be the difference, with MTU failing to convert a penalty kick and unable to put away a number of chances in front of the net, even with the 2014 season on the line.
The loss leaves Muangthong in 3rd place, 7 points behind first place with just 2 wins in their last 8 TPL matches. Muangthong make the trip to Chonburi for their next away game on Saturday night.
