First home match for Ricardo Rodriguez, that ended with a defeat by 2 goals to 3 against Sukhothai, who took advantage of the errors of the local team and conquered an away victory.
The first half was of clear local dominance, however, this is football, halftime was reached with the visiting team in advantage in the scoreboard. The first chance was for the local team, in a long pass from the defence by Rozario to Jakkapan in the position of right wing, who dribbled to the inside and from the edge of the box made a low crossing that was kicked on goal in the far post by Tinnakorn coming from second line, but the ball went to the side of the net. The next one was for Luiz, in a shot from the edge of the box not very powerful that was blocked by the goalkeeper without problems. Jakkapan had a similar chance, he received the ball in the edge of the box after a deflection but his soft shot was blocked again by the goalkeeper. The first opportunity for the visiting team came after a ball loss in midfield, the ball ended in the feet of Jhon Baggio who advanced to the edge of the box but his shot went over the bar. Rangsan had another chance for Suphanburi from outside the box, but his shot went out close to the right post of the rival’s goal. Football would be unjust with Suphanburi because a new ball loss in midfield in the stoppage time of the first half ended in a counterattack again for Jhon Baggio, who passed to ball to the left from the edge of the box to the breakthrough of Renan Marques, who scored a goal with a one-touch that entered the goal close to the up right-hand corner of the goal defended by Sinthaweechai. Half time was reached with the visiting team leading the game in their only shot on goal in the first half.
The second half started in the worst way for the local team, because Sukhothai increased the difference in the scoreboard after only 9 minutes. In a play by Jhon Baggio in left wing, he shot on goal from the edge of the box and the ball was poorly cleared by Sinthaweechai, it went directly to the feet of Renan Marques who only had to shoot on goal. The match turned very difficult for Suphanburi being two goals down. However, the local team managed to get back into the game right after. A free-kick from right wing executed into the box was touched slightly with a header by Rozario in the penalty spot and the ball entered the goal close to the right post; it was minute 58. The joy was short for Suphanburi, as Sukhothai increased again the difference in the scoreboard shortly after. In the 67th minute, a corner-kick executed from the left side ended with the ball in the feet of Jhon Baggio in the far post, who crossed the ball again to the far post, it was not well cleared by Sinthaweechai, deflected in Diouf and entered the goal. An unlucky play. The local team had the chance to reduce the difference with a crossing to the box from right wing that was kicked by Naphat in a spectacular backflip kick and the ball was deflected by the goalkeeper with some difficulties. Jakkapan also had it in a long crossing to the box from right wing that ended in his feet in the far post, but his low shot close to the post was blocked by the goalkeeper. The only remarkable opportunity for the visiting team was a free-kick executed from the right edge of the box by Renan Marques, his strong low shot to the far post could not be kicked on goal by Jhon Baggio and the ball went out nearly touching the right post of Sinthaweechai’s goal. Dellatorre also had a chance but his shot from the edge of the box went directly into the goalkeeper’s hands, yet it was in the last play of the game when the local team scored the second goal; it was minute 93. A corner-kick from the left side was cleared poorly by the rival defence, the ball ended falling in the penalty spot where Naphat kicked it with a tremendous shot that entered the goal close to the up right-hand corner of the rival’s goal.
After this defeat, Suphanburi is now tenth in the standings with 8 points. At the top, Bangkok Glass is still leading with 15 points, followed by Bangkok United with 13 points, and then three teams tied to 12 points, Muang Thong United, Ratchaburi and Chiangrai United.
