Matchday 10 of Thai Premier League in which Suphanburi received the visit of Army United. The three points stayed at home in a solid game by Suphanburi that conceded nearly no chances to the rival team. The final 1-0 is not a good reflection of the merits achieved by both teams.
The local team had the first chance of the game in an error of the rival defence, a bad pass by a defender of Army United ended in a crossing to the far post from right side by Wasan that Luiz headed directly into the goalkeeper’s hands. Same Luiz had the next opportunity for Suphanburi, after receiving a ball next to the side line in left wing, after dribbling some rival defenders into the centre of the pitch he shot on goal from the edge of the box but the ball went out close to the right post of the rival goal. Wasan and Luiz, a constant danger during the entire first half, created the next chance for the local team. A breakthrough by Wasan in right wing ended in a crossing to the box from the goal line into the far post, Luiz controlled the ball and shot on goal but the ball went again directly into the goalkeeper’s hands. Yet they would not miss the next chance and took the lead in the scoreboard; it was minute 23. A new breakthrough in the right side by Wasan after a wall-pass from Jakkapan ended in a low crossing into the penalty spot for the arrival of Carmelo from second line, who scored with a shot that entered the goal close to the left post. Again Luiz had it in a ball he received in left side, and after dribbling a few rivals into the centre of the pitch, he entered the box but his shot was cleared by the goalkeeper in a good save. The visiting team did not have a single shot on goal in the entire first half.
The first opportunity for the visiting team came shortly into the second half, with a long distance shot on goal that went directly into the hands of Sinthaweechai. They had it shortly after in a new shot from outside the box in the left side that went slightly out to the left of the local’s goal. Suphanburi had its first chance this second half in a long ball for the run of Luiz, in struggle with a rival defender, he managed to steal the ball over the goal line, but his shot, a bit forced, was cleared by the goalkeeper. Shortly after Chappuis reappeared on the pitch after his injury in substitution of Carmelo, and he had the last opportunity of the match in a new play from right side in a breakthrough by Dhossapol who passed the ball back for the arrival of Chappuis, who shot on goal but the goalkeeper cleared the ball.
After this win Suphanburi escalates a new position in the table and is now sixth with 18 points. At the top, Bangkok United won again in their visit to Bangkok Glass stadium and remains leader with 25 points, with Muang Thong United close second a point behind with 24 points; after the defeat, Bangkok Glass is now third, tied to 21 points to Buriram, fourth.
