Kasetsart 2-1 Osotspa M150 Saraburi

TPL side, Osotspa M150 Saraburi, were dumped out of the Toyota League Cup by 2nd division Kasetsart.

The 2nd division side looked hungrier and even though they weren't as technically skillful as their opponents, they deserved to pull off the upset.

It took me awhile to get focused on the match today as I was constantly interrupted by the stream of late arrivals into the stadium.

The opening goal was a terrific strike and it certainly caught the attention of all in attendance. Osotspa's Brazilian defender, Roberto da Silva lined up to take a free-kick from 40 yards. Nobody expected him to score, but from the second he struck it, I could see it was going in. It clipped in off the under side of the bar and hardly anybody in an Osotspa shirt ran to congratulate him.

After the goal, Osotspa had chances to increase their lead. They hit the post and Cleiton had a couple of chances that he could have done better with.

It was by no means one way traffic. Kasetsart kept plugging away and were rewarded for their effort shortly before the break. The goal was a bit fortuitous as Pritchya miscued his shot but luckily it fell into the path of Jean Jean and he swept it into the net.

Kasetsart seemed to grow in confidence after the break, and even though Osotspa looked a yard quicker, it was Kasetsart that wanted it more.

Kasetsart were cheered on by an usually vociferous support and the home side delighted them by scoring the winner with roughly 10 minutes remaining. The winner was a sweet strike and similar to the first goal, I could see it was net bound as soon as Witcharapol curled it with his right boot.

After the goal, Osotspa seemed to give up the ghost too easily and Kasetsart held out comfortably to achieve a memorable victory.
