Weekend Preview 28/29 May


Navy v Army Utd
Sisaket v TOT
Buriram PEA v Sriracha
Thai Port v BEC Tero
Pattaya v Chonburi
Osotspa Saraburi v Chiang Rai
TTM Pichit v Samut Songkram
Bangkok Glass v Police Utd
Muangthong v Khon Kaen

Bangkok’s two downtown based teams, Thai Port and BEC Tero Sasana, will clash at the PAT Stadium on Sunday.  Bec Tero started the season off brightly but have stuttered lately with 5 defeats from their last 7 games.  Thai Port on the other hand, have only lost one in 6 and will be looking to continue climbing up the TPL with a victory on Sunday. 

The Pathumthani derby between Bangkok Glass v Police should be a tight game. A victory for BG would move them to within one point of 3rd placed Police Utd. 

Muangthong should beat Khon Kaen at the Yamaha Stadium while the Army need to start picking up points on the road. They travel to the IPE Stadium in Chonburi to meet their fellow military based rivals, Siam Navy.

Division 1

Raj-Pracha v Chainat
JW Rangsit v Saraburi
BBCU v Chantaburi
Suphanburi v Air Force Utd
RBAC v SP Customs Utd
Phuket v Buriram FC
Bangkok Utd v Thai Honda
Songkla v Bangkok FC
PTT Rayong v Chaing Mai

BBCU on paper have an easy home tie against 14th placed Chantaburi. The current table toppers have won 6 on the bounce while Chantaburi have only picked up 4 points in their last 9 games. 

Bangkok United should also have too much at home to Thai Honda. Bangkok FC and Air Force United both have tough games with respective trips to Songkla and Suphanburi .

Division 2 (Bangkok)

Kasetsart v Kasem Bundit
Mapthaphut Rayong v Raj Vithi
North Bangkok FC v Samut Prakarn Utd
BKK Christian v Nontaburi
Thanyaburi Asia Utd v Thai Airways Luk Issan
NSRU v Jamjuree
Prachinburi v Thai Fleet
Assumption Thonburi v Globex

According to, North Bangkok FC will play at home on Monday evening against Samut Prakarn United. This will only be their 2nd home game of the season. Their new ground is still under construction so the game will be played at Bangkok University’s Rangsit campus. 

The game between Bangkok Christian and Nontaburi should be an interesting one on Sunday. Both sides are on the periphery of the promotion race and neither side will want to lose this one as it could severely dent their promotion prospects.
