Preview: Muangthong United vs. Bangkok United

Thai Premier League – Match 7

Kick-off at SCG Stadium on Sunday, April 26th at 20:00. (Live on TrueSport 2)

SCG Muangthong United get back into their TPL campaign with a Sunday night match-up against Bangkok United. The Angels currently sit in 6th place, one spot ahead of Muangthong. They come to this match after a 3-1 home victory over BEC Tero in the TPL, and a 0-2 away victory over Regional League Division 2 side Rajpracha in the Toyota League Cup.

Muangthong United fell to Suphanburi FC back at the beginning of April in their first loss of the season. Their most recent endeavor was more positive, beating Division 1’s Songkhla United 1-4 on the road in the League Cup. MTU will be seeking some revenge tonight, as the last time these two teams met at SCG Stadium Bangkok United earned their first win over Muangthong.

2015 Toyota League Cup – Round of 64

Kick-off at Tinsulanon Stadium on Saturday, April 18th at 18:00.

SCG Muangthong United look to bounce back from their first loss of the season, taking on freshly relegated Songkhla United this evening in the 2015 Toyota League Cup. Songkhla were dropped to Division 1 after an 18th place finish last season. The Southern Bulls come to this match after a 1-1 home draw against 2nd place Police United.

Muangthong suffered an away loss to Suphanburi before the Songkhran break, and will be looking to book their place in the next round against a club they’ve never failed to beat. Muangthong have won all 7 of their previous matches against Songkhla, and tonight would be a good time to continue that trend.

Goals: [SUP] Pornsai (54′), van Dijk (58′) [MTU] Mario (70′)

SCG Muangthong United suffered their first defeat of the season, falling 2-1 at Suphanburi. MTU looked like the better team throughout the match, piling on pressure and creating decent chances. But former MTU winger Jakkaphan Pornsai opened the scoring with a terrific solo effort, and an unforced error from defender Naoaki Aoyama gave Sergio van Dijk the room to toe-poke in the eventual game-winner. Mario Djurovski was able to get Muangthong onto the scoreboard with a nice header, but MTU’s increased pressure toward the end of the match would go unrewarded. The referee also “missed” a clear foul on Wuttichai Tathong, who was wrestled down inside the penalty area with the ball at his feet. A gif of the incident:

Wuttichai Foul

It’s a shame that an exciting match like this had to end with such a ridiculous non-call.

Muangthong now have another 3 week break in the TPL, but will head down south to face off against Division 1’s Songkhla United for the first Toyota League Cup match of the year on the 18th.

Highlights:

Suphanburi FC vs. Muangthong United

Thai Premier League – Match 6

Kick-off at Suphanburi Municipality Stadium on Saturday, April 4th at 19:00.

5th place Muangthong United have the opportunity to leap into first place with a win tonight against 4th place Suphanburi FC, a match-up that will see both teams trying to inflict the first loss of the season on the other. MTU come to this match after a 1-0 home win against 12th place Sisaket. Although both teams sit at 11 points, Suphanburi have the edge on goal differential. The War Elephants will see this as a chance to move up the table themselves, facing an MTU squad that were beaten 2-5 at SCG Stadium the last time these teams met. Their most recent match was a 0-2 away win against 15th place Port FC.
