Osotspa-M150 came to play and showed plenty of energy as both teams had equal possession during the first half. Kawin was on hand to shut down the attackes, and Muangthong’s central defenders Kim Dong Jin and Naoaki Aoyama were also key in limiting Osotspa’s chances.
The only goal came at 27 minutes when Cleiton Silva hit a low shot in from outside the box, following from an effort by Chananan that came off a defender, allowing Silva room to shoot.
The second half MTUTD dominated with several good chances at net with Osotspa’s keeper Chatchai Budphom making key stops to keep the score close. Osotspa came close towards the end of the match with shots just over the bar or wide in some tense moments for the MTUTD defence.
With the win MTUTD will now wait for the draw to see which club they will face in the quarter-finals. The teams advancing to the quarter finals are:
Chiang Rai United
SCG Muangthong United
MTUTD’s next match is this Sunday away to Port FC, a Thai Premier League fixture.
