Sukhothai, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 2-0 Thai League T1 victory vs Chiangrai United.
It has not been often in recent games that Sukhothai have kept a clean sheet. In fact, The Fire Bats have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 14 goals along the way.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Sukhothai:
- haven't lost in the league to Buriram United in their last 2 matches.
- have not beaten Buriram United in their last 3 league games.
Buriram United will go into this encounter following on from a 5-1 Thai League T1 win versus Rayong in their last match.
Demonstrating their fondness for action-packed encounters, goals have been scored 20 times in the previous six matches in which Buriram United have sent out their troops, giving a mean average of 3.33 goals for each fixture. Their opponents have hit 9 from this total. We will just have to find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.
Taking a look at their past results, Buriram United:
- haven't beaten Sukhothai in away games against them for the last 2 matches in the league.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 2 matches in the league.
Head to head
A look at their past head to head meetings going back to 13/05/2017 shows us that Sukhothai have won 1 of them and Buriram United 3, with the number of drawn results standing at 2.
21 goals were produced between them during those clashes, with 7 of them from The Fire Bats and 14 netted by The Thunder Castles. The average number of goals per game works out to 3.5.
Team News: Sukhothai
Sukhothai manager Pairoj Borwonwatanadilok does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this clash with a completely injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Buriram United
Owing to a completely healthy squad available for selection, Buriram United boss Božidar Bandović does not have any fitness concerns to report before this match.
Our thinking is that Buriram United will need to push hard to see themselves scoring against this Sukhothai team who we reckon should end up scoring and staying ahead.
We therefore see a good tussle with a 1-0 win for Sukhothai at the end of the 90.
Hoping for a good game.
