Muangthong United 2-0 Saraburi FC

Thai Premier League – Match 17


Goals: [MTU] Mario (46′); Kasidech (68′)

SCG Muangthong United pressure for the top spot in the league with a win over 17th place Saraburi FC. The first half was tense and methodical, with Muangthong carefully searching forward and Saraburi sitting back and looking to launch a counter attack. Muangthong had a number of chances hit the post or get cleared off the line in an exciting first half. Mario Djurovski scored early in the second half with a volleyed lob over the Saraburi keeper. After the opening goal, Saraburi surged forward looking for the equalizer. Kawin took Man of the Match honors as he made save after save to keep MTU in the lead. Substitute Kasidech made a nice run and a calm finish to put the game out of reach for the visitors.

Two great goals and an outstanding performance from Kawin put MTU in 1st, but Buriram United have the chance to reclaim the top spot with a win or draw against BEC Tero tonight.


Preview: Muangthong United vs. Saraburi FC

Thai Premier League – Match 17

Kick-off at SCG Stadium on Saturday, July 25th at 19:00. (Live on True4U)

After a worrying display against 14th place BEC Tero last weekend, SCG Muangthong United get back to TPL action against relegation-threatened Saraburi FC. This will be the first meeting between these 2 clubs. The Warlords sit inside the relegation zone at 17th place, just 2 points behind Navy and Port. They come to this match after a home loss to league leaders Buriram.

SCG Muangthong United will be looking to get back on track after dropping 2 points last weekend and failing to keep up the pressure for the top spot. A win would see MTU go to the top for at least for 24 hours, but they need to be careful. Although Saraburi have just 2 wins this season, those 2 wins have come within their last 5 matches. If Saraburi have started to turn their season around, Muangthong can’t afford to go into this game unprepared.

Thai Premier League – Match 16


Goals: [BEC] Notchaiya (23′) [MTU] Kasidech (90+5′)

SCG Muangthong United dropped 2 points in an away draw against 14th place BEC Tero on Saturday night. MTU looked aimless and passing was inaccurate. Tero had the majority of the chances in the game, getting the opening goal in the 23rd minute. Their high pressure strategy shut down Muangthong almost completely, and they looked like the better side throughout. It was only through Kasidech getting on the end of a long throw-in from Piyaphon deep into added time that MTU managed to net the equalizer and steal a point. The draw means BEC Tero’s winless streak now extends to 8 matches.

MTU need to take a good long look at what happened last night as they prepare for their next fixture, at home against 17th place Saraburi FC on the 25th.
