Muangthong United 1-0 Sisaket FC

Thai Premier League – Match 5

MTUTDvs.Sisaket

Goals: Cleiton (88′)

SCG Muangthong United defeated Sisaket FC by way of an 88th minute winner from former BEC Tero forward Cleiton Silva. It was the second straight game where Cleiton scored the game-winning goal, and the third straight shut-out for Kawin. Like we’ve seen in previous matches, Muangthong were able to maintain possession well, but were unable to capitalize on that possession. Even Cleiton’s goal came from a sloppy turnover by Sisaket. That said, Sisaket’s goalkeeper Narong Wongthongkam did produce some amazing saves, most notably his stop on Datsakorn Thonglao’s header in the first half:

Unless FA Cup or Toyota Cup matches have yet to be scheduled for March, Muangthong United are looking at a huge 3 week break. As it stands, their next match will be an away fixture against Suphanburi FC on April 4th.

Thai Premier League – Match 5

Kick-off at SCG Stadium on Wednesday, March 11th at 20:00.

SCG Muangthong United welcome Sisaket FC for the TPL’s mid-week match up this evening. Sisaket have had a good start to their season, winning 2 home games against BEC Tero and newly-promoted Saraburi while giving up 0 goals. This could mean trouble for Muangthong, who have drawn with Sisaket in their last 2 attempts and have not scored more than 1 goal in a game this season. MTU’s offense has been successful with creating scoring opportunities, but unsuccessful with converting those chances into goals.

Thai Premier League – Match 3

Bangkok Glassvs.MTUTD

Goals:

SCG Muangthong United couldn’t manage to break the deadlock on Saturday night, leaving Leo Stadium with 1 point after a 0-0 draw with Bangkok Glass. Both teams lacked effectiveness in the attacking third, although MTU had the more dangerous opportunities of the evening. Teerasil Dangda even had a shot deflect off the post, although he was wrongfully flagged offside on the play. Also including Teerasil was a clumsy tackle inside the penalty area by BG’s Suwannapat Kingkkaew, which was waved off by the referee. A gif of the incident:

Teerasil vs BG Penalty?

In my opinoin, Teerasil goes down very easily and probably should have stayed on his feet and got a shot off. While it could technically be a penalty, it does look like he’s seeking to make contact as he falls, which is probably why the ref let it go.

Also of interest, Piyaphon Phanichakul, the go-to man for long throw-ins, managed to heave the ball into the penalty area where it bounced untouched over both teams’ players and into the goal. But since you cannot score directly from a throw in (which, incidentally, I learned yesterday evening), it was simply retaken.

Next up, Muangthong United will face Thai Port on Sunday, March 8th, at SCG Stadium.
