Matchday 12 of Thai Premier League in which Suphanburi received the visit of BEC Tero Sasana. Tie without goals in a game where Suphanburi made more to deserve the victory but lacked the accuracy to convert the chances generated.
The first dangerous attempt on goal was for the local team, in a free-kick executed to the box from left wing by Jakkapan, the ball could not be cleared by the visiting defence and ended in the feet of Tinnakorn, who falling back could not connect the kick and the goalkeeper blocked the ball. The next one also came from a corner-kick from the right side kicked by Jakkapan that Rozario headed in the far post directly into the goalkeeper’s hands. The same play repeated but from the opposite side, a corner-kick executed by Jakkapan from the left side was headed by Rozario but the ball went out close to the bar. The first chance for the visiting team came from a play in right wing, but the crossing by the rival player was cleared by Sinthaweechai without trouble. BEC Tero also had it in a shot from the edge of the box that Sinthaweechai blocked. Suphanburi had the last chance of the first half, in a play by Jakkapan in right wing, his crossing to the box was cleared by a rival defender and the ball ended in the feet of Luiz, who connected a strong shot on goal, but the ball deflected in Carmelo and went out.
The second half started with a new opportunity for Suphanburi from a free-kick. It was Dhossapol this time who crossed the ball to the heart of the box from left wing, Prat slightly headed the ball in the penalty spot and the goalkeeper managed to clear it. The first chance for BEC Tero in this second half was for Bubalo, their most dangerous player in the match, with a shot on goal from the left edge of the box that went out very close to the left post of the local goal. Suphanburi could take the lead in two consecutive chances, first in a corner executed from the left side by Rangsan that was kicked on goal in a bicycle kick from the penalty spot but the ball went slightly out close to the right post; and then in a crossing to the far post by Luiz in left wing that was headed close to the base of the left post of the rival’s goal. Luiz had the next one in a personal play from midfield, he headed towards the goal, and after a dribbling a player in the edge of the box he made a strong low kick on goal that deflected in a rival player and went out nearly touching the right post of BEC Tero’s goal. The subsequent corner-kick executed by Rangsan was headed by Rozario in the penalty spot coming from second line but the ball went out again. The visiting team answered with a double chance, first by Bubalo, who received a ball in the right edge of the box, and after dribbling a defender he shot on goal but the ball went out close to the bar; and then with a shot from outside the box that went out close to the right post of Sinthaweechai’s goal. That was all for the game.
After this home tie, Suphanburi is now eighth, although tied to 19 points with Chonburi, seventh. At the top, Muang Thong won again and remains leader with 30 points, followed by Bangkok United with 28 points, and then Bangkok Glass and Sukhothai tied to 24 points, in third and fourth spot.
