Suphanburi FC 0-1 Bangkok United
(Teeratep Winothai 21’)
The well-known Thai striker Teerathep Winothai struck again as Bangkok United turned up the heat on Suphanburi FC with a narrow 1-0 win.
The atmosphere was electric and the action was frenetic. Suphanburi started brightly with Carmelo Gonzalez going close in the 9th minute, cutting in and netting narrowly wide.
But it was the visiting side that managed to take the lead, when “Leesaw” Teeratep Winothai scored a superb volley in the 21st minute, putting Bangkok up front 1-0 in the first half.
Suphanburi spent the whole second half to bounce back but lacked creativity and struggled to break down disciplined and defensive opponents.
The last minute was called, and it was Bangkok United that visited Suphanburi and took the important three points back with them.

In the second half, Jakkaphan Kaewprom gave home side a 47th minute lead again but Chananan Pombuppha levelled in the 60th minute.
In the 70th minute, Buriram took the lead once again, when Kim Seung Yong swept in but Chenrop Samphaodi’s header brought Tero back again in the 86th minute.
Visitor’s Adison Promrak was sent off but ten-man BEC Tero ended the match with a thrilling 3-3 draw against Buriram.
Army United 0-1 Muangthong United
(Chaiyawat Buran 84’)
