Sunday August 9th, 2015
SCG Muangthong United gave Bangkok Glass a through thrashing with a 5-0 triumph at the SCG Stadium, and in doing so are tied fir top of the table with Buriram, with both teams even points and goal difference.
Muangthong established a lead early on when Cleiton Silva at the 2nd minute game took the pass from Teersil and hammered it in. Muangthong then made it 2-0 at the 7th minute when a corner was headed back to the centre of the box and Teerasil was there to head the ball in.
The Kirin dominated most of the first half, and came close on several occasions, including a touch from Teerasil that was almost then knocked in right at the end of the half. Bangkok Glass’s best chance came 35 minutes in when a strong shot looked to be going in, however Kawin made a diving catch to deny the goal.
In the second half Glass substituted Matthew Smith off in favour of Tossapol. This was followed 10 minutes later as Siwakorn left the pitch for Narong. However Bangkok Glass never threatened the Muangthong goal for much, with the exception of a header off the post.
The third goal came about through the work of Teerasil, at the 57th minute, who managed to keep possession through several tackles, and then slide the ball across the goal mouth to Mario Gjurovski who was completely unmarked, and scored. Teerasil was the MAN-OF-THE-MATCH for his assists, goals, and constant pressure on the ball to create chances.
The match looked like it would end 3-0, but then striker Chananan came in at the 54th minute. In the remaining minutes of the match he was able to score twice as the Bangkok Glass defense collapsed under the constant attacking pressure from Muangtong.
Coach Dragan’s comments: “All the supporters give power to my players..thank yo so much, but we can play better…You saw Mui (Teerasil) today looked more like the great player he is, but there is more to come from him…”
SCG Muangthong United are back in action soon with Osotspa M-150 coming to the SCG Stadium this Wednesday Aug. 12th, 2015, for the Chang FA Cup Round of 16 match.
