BBCU played an hour of the game with only 10 players after Issawa was sent off for receiving two yellow cards. Out of the two teams, the Pink Power will be happier with the point from this match.
The first half was a stop-start niggly affair. BBCU could have been reduced to 10 men on 20 minutes. BBCU's left back Adun didn't like a challenge made by Korean, Jang Gil Hyeok, and he reacted by swinging at him. The ref yellow carded both players although by the letter of the law, Adun should have gone for an early bath.

The downpour continued during the break and by the time the second half resumed the pitch was soaking wet.
The rain eventually did subside and on the hour Bangkok United were level. A shot from 25 yards out by Romain Gasmi took a deflection and beat Jean Marc Beyeme in the BBCU goal.
A couple of minutes later, the influencial Frenchman tried a long range shot from just inside the BBCU half that went inches over the bar.

Kiatisuk Senamuang, or Zico to you and me, had surprisingly left top goal scorers Chainarong and Justine Uche Prince on the bench.
Chainarong did eventually enter the play and within a couple of minutes of his introduction, he could have scored. He was inches away from tapping in a sweeping cross from the left.
Tomas Kozer thought he had scored the winner with 10 minutes to go, but the Slovenian failed to notice the offside flag that had been raised by the linesman.
The game finished 1-1 and it's now 22 games since Bangkok United won at the Thai Japanese Stadium. They had the better of the second half, but couldn't break down the away sides resilient defending. When will the curse of the Thai Yeepun Stadium end?
