Matchday 9 of Thai Premier League, in which Bangkok Glass received the visit of Ratchaburi, team coached last season by Ricardo Rodriguez. Local win 1-0 in a game in which Bangkok Glass carried the weight and had numerous goal chances.
The first 45 minutes were of clear local dominance, with many goal opportunities to have opened the scoreboard, however the score by halftime had not move. The first goal chance came with a breakthrough by Kaimbi in right wing, his cross to the box was headed by Goshi in the edge of the small box, but his header went over the bar. The next chance came also from the right side with Kaimbi, who decided to shoot this time instead of crossing, but his shot went out. The local team had a new chance in a corner kick, the goalkeeper missed to clear the ball but blocked the header by Matt Smith, the ball was deflected and cleared close to the goal line by a rival defender when Hemdaeng was about to shoot on goal. The next 2 goal chances came from long distance shots, the first one by Leandro in a free-kick from the right side that was deflected by the goalkeeper, and then by Narong, but his shot from outside the box went slightly out. The first and only chance for Ratchaburi during the first half came from a free-kick by Heberty, his shot was deflected on the wall changing the trajectory and went out nearly touching the post. Bangkok Glass responded with a new far shot from Narong that went out close to the post. With this chance ended the first half.
The second half followed the same pattern, with Bangkok Glass dominating the match and creating the best opportunities. However, it would be Ratchaburi the first to create a chance, with a shot from outside the box that was deflected in a defender, changed the trajectory but was cleared to corner by Narit. The local team answered with a corner set-play, the cross to the area could not be kicked and ended in the far post in the feet of Hemdaeng, but his shot went to the side of the net. The next chance was for Kaimbi, changed to the left wing, after a breakthrough and subsequent dribble to the defender but his shot went into the goalkeeper’s hands. Heberty responded for Ratchaburi with a shot from outside the box saved without trouble by Narit. Leandro had a new opportunity, after a great high through-pass over the defence by Siripala, but his header went out nearly touching the post. In the next play it was Siripala who had the chance, after a cross by Kaimbi from the right wing, but his kick went slightly out close to the post. The local team had 2 new chances, first with another cross from the right side by Kaimbi that was headed over the bar by Leandro, and then with a long distance shot from Siripala that went into the goalkeeper’s hands. Then again was Kaimbi, a constant threat all the game, who generated a goal chance, his cross to the area was headed by Leandro but the goalkeeper made a great save when it seemed the ball would enter into the goal, the save of the game. Ratchaburi had a third opportunity in this second half with a shot from the edge of the box that went slightly over the bar, they did not do much more. When it seemed that the game would end in a draw, despite all the goal chances created by Bangkok Glass, came the play of the game. In the 90th minute Tasevski received the ball in the left wing, dribbled a defender into the inside, and shot a missile that entered the goal close to the up right hand corner. An amazing goal to close the game and give 3 points to the local team.
After this win, Bangkok Glass is now second in the standings with 20 points, only 1 point behind the leader, one more week Buriram United. Third and fourth are Suphanburi and Muang Thong United, respectively, tied to 18 points.
