Muangthong stay three clear of Buriram at TPL summit

Muangthong United remain three points clear at the top of the Thai Premier League despite being held to a 2-2 draw by Ratchaburi on Saturday evening.

The Twin Qilins had taken the lead at the Dragons Arena through Wuttichai Tathong’s 28th-minute opener, only for Genki Nagasato to equalise for Ratchaburi nine minutes later.

The hosts then took the lead eight minutes after the break when Heberty struck his 16th goal of the campaign, but Todsapol Lated popped up two minutes after to score and earn Muangthong a share of the spoils.

Still, the league leaders remain three points clear of second-placed Buriram United, who played out a shock 1-1 draw at second-from-bottom PTT Rayong.

It looked as though the Thunder Castle were on course for a routine win at the PTT Stadium, when Thailand international Theerathon Bunmathan fired them ahead after 14 minutes.

But they were unable to add to their tally and were eventually made to pay as Pichet In-bang struck five minutes after the hour mark to force the draw for PTT.

Over at the Tinsulanon Stadium, Army United’s recent resurgence came to a halt as their two-game winning streak was ended by a 1-1 draw with Songkhla United.

Things could have been worse for them after the hosts had broken the deadlock in the sixth minute courtesy of a Muzafer Ejupi strike.

Nonetheless, Raphael Botti managed to equalise four minutes into the second half, which ultimately proved enough to hand Army a valuable point.

In what turned out to be an evening of draws, Chiangrai United were the only team that managed to emerge victorious after claiming a 2-0 win over Suphanburi.

Anon Sangsanoi fired Chiangrai ahead at the United Stadium after 12 minutes, before adding a second in the 37th minute to make sure of the result.

In Saturday’s final match, Police United and Sisaket played out a 2-2 draw at the Thammasat Stadium.
