Matchday 20 in Thai Premier League, in which Bangkok Glass received the visit at Leo Stadium of Navy FC. The game was a monologue by the local team, who won 4-1, and could have scored more goals. In the match of the first leg, Bangkok Glass also won, 0-1.
The first half was totally dominated by the local team, not allowing the visiting team to create any clear chance. The first three opportunities were for Aridane, the first one after receiving a through pass to his break through into the box, but he could not connect well the shot struggling with a defender and the shot was saved by the goalkeeper; the second one in a crossing to the box from the left side that was cleared by a defender when he was about to kick on goal; and the third in a shot attempt by Tanasith from the right corner of the box that went deviated, the ball ended in the feet of Aridane but his shot went over the bar. However, the first goal for Bangkok Glass came in the next play. Tanasith again made a missed attempt of shot on goal that went deflected to the goal line, where Aridane crossed the ball to the second post and Tasevski headed on goal. It was minute 18. Only 4 minutes later the local team increased the difference in the scoreboard. Bodin got the ball in right wing and started dribbling to the centre, after a wall-pass with a teammate he shot on goal from outside the box, a soft shot to the hands of the goalkeeper, who inexplicably missed to block the ball and it entered the goal. The first attempt on goal by the visiting team came from a play in right wing, that ended in a crossing to the box that was kicked over the bar by Rodrigo after a couple deflections. The local team answered first with a long distance shot by Tanasith that went slightly out, and then with a crossing from left wing to the second post that was headed by Aridane to where Tasevski was in the other post, but his header was saved by the goalkeeper in a good clearance. The second attempt on goal by Navy came from a corner-kick executed from the right side, that was headed way out by a rival player from the edge of the small box. The next one was for Bangkok Glass, in a corner set-play that ended with a crossing to the box from left wing that was headed over the bar by Matt Smith. A new crossing to the box came again from left wing that was headed by Aridane, in a struggle with two defenders, but the goalkeeper cleared the ball placing a good hand close to the left post. The last chance from the first half was for Navy, in a crossing to the box from left side to the second post that was headed too high by Rodrigo, their most dangerous player in this match.
The second half continued like the first one, with opportunities for Bangkok Glass. Pakin Kaikaew had the first one in a long distance shot that went directly to the goalkeeper’s hands, and right away a play in right side ended in a pass back from the goal line to Aridane but his soft shot was blocked by the goalkeeper without trouble. The visiting team answered with a shot from the edge of the box by Rodrigo that went out close to the right post of the goal defended by Pornchai in this game. The goal of the night came in the 57th minute. Pakin shot on goal from a long distance and the ball entered the goal close to the left up-hand corner, impossible for the goalkeeper. Navy answered quickly with a play in left wing that ended in a break through into the box, but the shot from the left side of the box was cleared by Pornchai in a good save. Pornchai blocked again in a shot from outside the box. Tasevski had the chance to increase the difference for the local team in a personal play that ended with a shot from the edge of the box that the goalkeeper saved with a good save. Shortly after Navy reduced the difference in the scoreboard by Rodrigo, in a play started by himself, after a wall-pass with a teammate in the edge of the box, he entered the box and made a strong shot on goal impossible for Pornchai. It was minute 78. Bangkok Glass answered with a play that ended in Toti, in the left side of the edge of the box, but his shot went out close to the post. Navy tried again with a far shot well saved by Pornchai. The fourth goal for the local team came in a counter-attack commanded by Toti in left wing, who reached the edge of the box and passed the ball to the other side to the arrival of Pakin, who made a crossed shot impossible for the goalkeeper which touched the post before entering the goal; it was minute 88. Till the end of the match, one chance for each side, the first one for the visiting team in a free-kick executed from the edge of the box by Rodrigo that went over the bar, and the following one with a strong shot by a Bangkok Glass player from the right side of the box that was cleared by the goalkeeper.
With this win Bangkok Glass reaches 41 points, and continues third, tied with Muang Thong United, although they have a match less due to the suspension of their game against Port FC. Buriram continues leader with 44 points, and behind it is Chonburi fourth with 39 points.
