First match for Suphanburi in the Toyota League Cup this season. In the match corresponding to the 1/32 finals Suphanburi played a one-game away match against Ayutthaya United, from Thai Third Division. The difference in level was patent in the game and Suphanburi won without trouble, despite the slim difference in the scoreboard, 0-1, and qualified for the 1/16 round.
The first half was controlled totally by the visiting team, who imposed their highest level, despite the bad condition of the pitch, very dry. The first chance for Suphanburi came from a free-kick sided to the left that was crossed to the box by Dhossapol and the header by Rozario from the edge of the small box was cleared to corner with a good save by the goalkeeper. The local team answered with a shot from outside the box that went wide out, that was their only close attempt on goal in the entire game. The goal came shortly after in a very similar play to the previous one, a free-kick executed by Dhossapol from the left side was headed by Prat from the edge of the small box and the ball entered the goal after hitting the left post. The goal made justice to the clear dominance of the visiting team. The following two opportunities were for Dhossapol, first with a shot from the left edge of the box that went directly into the goalkeeper’s hands, who cleared without trouble, and the second one with a shot from the edge of the box that went out close to the right-hand corner of Ayutthaya’s goal.
The second half continued in the same way, with total control from Suphanburi. The first chance of this second half came from a play in left wing that ended with a crossing into the box that Naphat could not kick in the near post. The second opportunity also was for Naphat, who shot from outside the box sided to the left after a good breakthrough, but his shot was cleared by the goalkeeper with a great save close to the right post. The next one was for Dellatorre, again with a shot from outside the box that deflected in a teammate and went out close to the left post of the rival’s goal. Till the end, not much more to highlight, again a long distance shot that was cleared by the goalkeeper with some difficulties, and a breakthrough into the box by Chitchanok, who received a through-pass over the defence, but his crossed shot went out.
With this win, Suphanburi qualifies for 1/16 finals of Toyota League Cup.
