Matchday 13 of Thai Premier League in which Suphanburi visited the stadium of Nakhon Ratchasima. The match ended without goals despite the multiple chances created by both sides.
After some initial minutes without much play, the local team had the first chance, with a free-kick executed from the edge of the box slightly sided to the right that went out close to the bar. Suphanburi answered in a crossing by Chitchanok from right wing that went directly to the side of the net. The following play, a breakthrough by Luiz in left wing ended in a crossing from the left side of the box that was headed into goal by Dellatorre, but the referee whistled offside and disallowed the goal. The local team answered soon with a great far distance shot that went out close to the bar of Sinthaweechai’s goal, and then with a shot from inside the box but the ball went to the side of the net after deflecting in a visiting defender. In the subsequent corner-kick, the ball could not be cleared by Suphanburi’s defence and it ended in the feet of Adiyiah in the penalty spot, who kicked the ball violently on goal but Sinthaweechai blocked the low shot with a great save. Suphanburi answered with a chance for Chitchanok again, after a long ball by Chappuis for his breakthrough in right wing, but his header went directly into the goalkeeper’s hands. The best opportunity of the match came in the next play, a good long through-ball by Apisit over the defence for the breakthrough of Dellatorre in right wing ended with a shot by him sided to the right of the box, the goalkeeper cleared the ball but did not block it and left it in front of him where Chappuis was, who kicked on goal but the goalkeeper made the save of the day and cleared the goal miraculously. Same Chappuis had the next chance in a corner-kick executed by Rangsan from the left side, the defence could not clear the ball that ended in the feet of Chappuis in the penalty spot, who kicked strongly on goal but the ball deflected in a rival player on its way in. That was all in a first half that incredibly ended without goals.
The second half started like the first half ended, with a chance for Suphanburi. Luiz shot on goal from outside the box but the ball went directly into the goalkeeper’s hands. Dellatorre had a similar opportunity shortly after but his shot from the edge of the box also went into the goalkeeper’s hands. Same Dellatorre had the following chance, in a play with Luiz in the edge of the box, after a wall-pass he shot on goal and the ball ended in the hands of the goalkeeper. Dellatorre had it again after a breakthrough by Chappuis in left wing, who crossed a low ball to the edge of the box where Dellatorre was, he controlled and shot on goal but the ball went wide out to the left of the rival’s goal. The next chance for the visiting team came from a corner-kick executed from the left side, Rozario connected a shot in a strange position in struggle with a local defender in the penalty spot but the ball was cleared by the goalkeeper with a good save close to his left post. The first opportunity for the local team came after a bad clearance by Rozario close to the goal line inside the box, Adiyiah stole the ball but his shot on goal from the goal-line was blocked by Sinthaweechai. They had it again in a crossing to the box from left wing that could not be headed by a rival player in the near post and the ball crossed the box without any player kicking it on goal. Suphanburi answered fast with a new chance, this time for Jakkapan, who made a strong shot on goal from the edge of the box but the ball went out close to the right post of the rival’s goal. Then the local team had it with a shot from Lindemann, one of their most active players, that went slightly out close to the top right-hand corner of Suphanburi’s goal. The last chance for the visiting team was for Dellatorre in a crossing to the box from right wing by Chakrit that he headed way out to the right of the rival’s goal. However, the last chance of the game was for Nakhon Ratchasima, in a free-kick from the left side edge of the box executed by Lindemann that went again over the bar.
