FA Cup Last 16 Round Up

Bangkok FC 3-3 Army Utd (Bangkok win 5-3 on penalties)
Bangkok FC and Army United fought out an entertaining 3-3 and it needed penalties to separate the sides. Bangkok FC were 2-0 up before Army fought back to edge into a 3-2 lead. Army couldn't hold out as Tawin equalized late on. The Bang Mod side eventually won 5-3 on penalties to book their spot in the quarter finals.

BEC Tero 1-2 PTT Rayong
The Fire Dragons woeful run continued as they were ousted from the cup by first division PTT Rayong. Kirati's goal five minutes from time won PTT Rayong the contest 2-1.

Muangthong Utd 5-0 Phuket
After an uneventful first half, Mario Djurovski gave Muangthong the lead seconds after the restart as his shot went in off Jakrapong. The unfortunate Alef scooped the ball into the net following a Teerasil centre to effectively seal the match for Muangthong in the 57th minute. The returning Edivaldo side footed home ten minutes later before Teerasil burst through the middle to chip over the Phuket keeper with 15 minutes left. Pak Nam Chol rounded things off in the 90th minute with a simple goal to complete a 5-0 rout for Muangthong. 

Phatthalung 1-3 Chiang Rai Utd
Chiang Rai survived a potential banana skin with a second half fight back securing their 3-1 passage past regional league Phatthalung.

Police 4-2 Osotspa Saraburi 
The home side's Brazilian connection grabbed three of their four goals as they raced into a 4-0 lead. Osotspa snatched a couple of late consolations to make it a 4-2 scoreline.

Samut Songkhram 0-2 Buriram Utd
Jirawat and Patino were on target as the cup holders eased their way into the quarters with a 2-0 win at Samut Songkhram.

Singh Tarua 2-1 Bangkok Utd
Leandro was the toast of Khlong Toei as his brace helped Tarua come from behind to sink Bangkok United. The Division 1 side were reduced to 10 players late on when Todsapol was sent off.

Trat 1-2 Bangkok Glass (AET)
BG came flying out of the blocks and Chaiyaporn in the Trat goal was called upon to make a host of saves in the first ten minutes. Trat slowly worked their way into the game and an unmarked Rattaporn squeezed a shot into the bottom corner to give the White Elephants the lead in the 21st minute. Bangkok Glass had to wait until the 76th minute to level when Goran Jerkovic capitalized on a defensive fresh air kick to drill a low shot home. The tie went to extra time after the sides fought out an entertaining 1-1 draw in slippery conditions. As penalties were looming, Chatree headed a Peerapong cross to spare the lottery of spot kicks for the TPL side.


  1. Not a bad day for Division 1 teams in this round of the FA Cup!

    3 of 5 Teams made it to the Quarters-finals.
    Lets see if, some magic will be left!

    The strange thing is the winner of this cup will make get to play in the Champions League Play-off!

  2. It's also good for Air Force that PTT, Bangkok FC and Singh Tarua will have the distraction of the FA Cup.

    If they can avoid each other in the draw, a Buriram v Muangthong final looks increasingly likely.
