TPL & TLC Midweek Review

Wuachon Utd 1-4 Chonburi
BBCU 1-8 Muangthong Utd

BBCU's 8-1 mauling at the hands of Muangthong United, confirms that they'll be returning to Division 1 for 2013 after only only season in the top flight.
Nobody expected the avalanche of goals to follow on 26 minutes when Kobenan Lion gave BBCU the lead. The Juventus clad TPL champs hit back with goals from Diago Siaka and two from Teerasil to lead 3-1 at the break, while Rangel added another after half time before Teerasil completed another double and Adnan Barakat notched a late brace to round off the 8-1 rout.

Early goals from Anderson Dos Santos and Phanuwat put Chonburi firmly in control of their match at Wuachon. Kone Seydou pulled one back for the Fighting Bulls but the outstanding Thiago calmed the nerves as his two goals towards the tail end of the match secured the three points for the Sharks.

Toyota League Cup - Semi Final 2nd Leg
TOT (2) 2-2 (3) Ratchaburi
Buriram Utd (4) 1-0 (2) Bangkok Glass

If goals dominated the TPL proceedings, then it was a fiery night of six red cards which grabbed the headlines in the Toyota League cup semi finals.

There were ugly scenes at the end of the TOT v Ratchaburi contest as players and staff traded blows on the pitch after Weera had apparently sparked it off by kicking a playacting opponent.
However, it was a placid opening at the TOT Stadium with Jang Gil Hyeok's 13th minute side footer making it 2-0 on aggregate for Ratchaburi. Paunovic's free kick went through the Ratchaburi keeper on the hour before Bas Savage gave the TPL side a 2-1 lead on the night with 10 minutes remaining. Narentorn though, finished the game off in stoppage time as the first division side reserved a spot in the final. Ratcahburi won the tie 3-2 but TOT can claim the red card count edging it by the same margin as the scoreline.

As reported earlier, Buriram United beat Bangkok Glass 1-0 on the night to win 4-2 on aggregate. There was only one red card in this tie which went to Valery Hiek of Bangkok Glass.
