TPL Matchday 3 Review

Army Utd 1-0 Ratchaburi
BEC Tero 3-1 Pattaya Utd
Buriram Utd 1-0 Chainat
Chiang Rai Utd 2-2 Bangkok Glass
Chonburi 0-2 Muangthong Utd
Osotspa Saraburi 3-1 Bangkok Utd
Police Utd 0-2 Suphanburi
Samut Songkhram 0-0 TOT
Songkhla Utd 3-0 Sisaket

Two first half goals from Mario Djurovski helped Muangthong maintain their perfect league start to the season and moved them 5 points clear of title contenders Chonburi. By all accounts it was a comfortable victory for the current TPL champs against a stale looking Chonburi side.
Two points behind Muangthong sit BEC Tero, Osotspa, Buriram and Suphanburi who are all tied on seven points.
Tero and Osotspa earned routine 3-1 home wins while Bustos headed the only goal of the evening in Buriram's 1-0 win over Chainat. Surprise package Suphanburi opened the scoring at Police with a Pichit penalty before Dragan Boskovic's fine solo goal wrapped up the points for Suphan.
At the bottom, there are five sides with only one solitary point. As mentioned earlier, Bangkok United lost in Saraburi while Sisaket went down 3-0 at Songkhla and a toothless Ratchaburi lost 1-0 at Army. Chiang Rai Utd and Bangkok Glass both notched their first points after a lively game at the United stadium. Leandro Assumpcao put the home side in front before Chatree levelled for BG. Kyle Nix's scuffed effort on the stroke of half time appeared to have won the points for Chiang Rai Utd, but their lead was cancelled out late on as Peter Laeng equalized with a header.
In the final game, Samut Songkhram and TOT served up a 0-0 stinker as the points were shared in a goalless draw.
