Chiangrai United will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-0 Thai League T1 loss in their previous game against PT Prachuap.
It’s been seldom in recent games where Chiangrai United have shown defensive steel. The facts show that The Beetles have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 8 goals in the process. Despite that, we’ll just have to find out whether such a trend might be replicated here in this match or not.
Their past results show that Chiangrai United:
- have not lost a league tie with Nakhon Ratchasima in their last 4 games.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 matches in the league.
Nakhon Ratchasima go into this clash following on from a 1-0 Thai League T1 win to beat Suphanburi in their most recent fixture.
A series of accomplished showings by the Nakhon Ratchasima defensive players has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 3 from their last 6 clashes combined. In that period of time, their own attack force has managed to score 14.
Their previous form shows that Nakhon Ratchasima:
- remain unbeaten by Chiangrai United when having played them away from home in the previous 2 league games.
- are unbeaten in their last 4 away league matches.
Head to head
Checking on their past head to head meetings stretching back to 08/11/2017 shows that Chiangrai United have won 3 of them and Nakhon Ratchasima 1, with the number of drawn results standing at 2.
A sum of 15 goals were scored between them during those clashes, with 10 from The Beetles and 5 belonging to The Swat Cats. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.5.

Team News: Nakhon Ratchasima
Due to a fully healthy squad available to choose from, Nakhon Ratchasima boss Teerasak Po-on has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game.
It looks to us that Chiangrai United have it within them to score a couple of goals when they play Nakhon Ratchasima, who won’t find it easy finding the net themselves.
We’re therefore expecting to see a 2-0 victory for Chiangrai United when all’s said and done.
