Matchday 25 in Thai Premier League, in which Bangkok Glass received at Leo Stadium the visit of Chainat Hornbill. Cleary victory for the local team, that won 3-0. In the first leg, the score was 1-1.
The first chance of the match was for the local team in a free-kick from the left edge of the box that Supachai kicked with accuracy to the left corner of the goal and the goalkeeper saved with a great hand. The visiting team answered quickly with a play in left wing that ended in a shot from the edge of the box that went directly into Narit’s hands. The following one was for Bordin, in a personal play in left wing dribbling rivals into the centre of the pitch and made a strong long distance shot that the goalkeeper saved again with a great hand close to his left post. The subsequent corner-kick was headed by Bordin in the penalty spot and the goalkeeper once again saved his team with a magnificent save. Kaikaew had another chance in another free-kick from the left side of the box, but his shot went to the side of the net. Chainat had its second dangerous attempt in another shot on goal from the edge of the box that was well cleared to corner by Narit in a good save close to his right post. The next opportunity for the local team came in a break-through in left wing by Toti, who reached the goal line and crossed a low ball to the far post that Goshi kicked in an unnatural position and the ball went to the side of the net. The visiting team had its third chance again with a long distance shot, this time the ball kicked from the edge of the box hit the left post of Narit’s goal. This was the last chance of a first half full of alternatives.
Things changed completely in the second half, which was a complete monologue by the local team and fully dominated the match; scored 3 goals, another goal was disallowed, one shot hit the post and there were chances for scoring some more goals. The substitution of Aridane during halftime was key, he was a continuous danger for the visiting defence. His first chance came from a crossing in right wing that he headed over the bar; the next one in a shot on goal from the edge of the box that went directly to the goalkeeper’s hands; then in a crossing to the box by Toti from the goal line in left wing that he could not kick in a struggle with a defender in the near post. Bangkok Glass had another chance in a free-kick executed to the box from right wing, the header by Bordin deflected in a defender and after several more deflections the ball ended in the feet of Toti, but his shot was cleared by the goalkeeper in a great save. Toti had again the next chance, after a crossing from right wing that ended in his feet in the edge of the box, but his shot went slightly out close to the left post of the goal. Yet the local team would not miss their next chance and finally opened the can; it was minute 70. A crossing from right side by Toti was headed on goal by Aridane with a magnificent header from the penalty spot that entered the goal close to the right corner. The same Aridane had the chance right after to increase the advantage in the scoreboard after a crossing to the box from the goal line in right wing but his header went to the bar. In the following play the referee conceded a penalty in a foul over Tasevski inside the box after a crossing from the right side. The penalty was executed by Praweenwat but the goalkeeper deflected the shot with a magnificent hand close to his left post, however the deflection went to the feet of Aridane who sent the ball to the back of the net; it was minute 74. Tasevski had the chance to increase the difference in the scoreboard but his shot from the right edge of the box was cleared to corner with a good save. In the subsequent corner-kick, the set-play ended with a crossing to the area to the far post, which was headed on goal by Aridane in a struggle with two defenders, but the referee disallowed the goal for a foul by Aridane in the header. The following one was for Bordin in a counter-attack play, in which he went on goal alone from the midfield line against only one rival defender, he dribbled and shot on goal from the edge of the box but his shot went over the bar. In a very similar play, Aridane ended up hand-to-hand against the goalkeeper after a counter-attack from a through-pass to the back of the defence, but his crossed shot went slightly out close to the left post of the goal. Nevertheless, in the third attempt the local team scored the definitive third goal. A long pass directly from the left-back to the back of the defence left Bordin hand-to-hand against the goalkeeper and beat him with an accurate shot close to the left post of the goal. It was minute 94 and this was the last play of the match. A brilliant second half by Bangkok Glass in which they gave a football lesson.
With these three points Bangkok Glass remains third with 46 points, now two points ahead of Bangkok United, which is fourth. At the top, Muang Thong and Buriram continue with their face-to-face and did not miss in their respective games, and are tied to 59 points.
