Elsewhere, Buriram United took to the pitch for the first time since lockdown, after a false COVID-19 test which delayed their season by two weeks. The Thunder Castle featured a full complement of our foreign players, as Renato Kelic, Marko Scepovic and Akbar Ismatullaev all took to the pitch against Suphanburi FC.
The hosts looked promising in the opening stages, but faced a stern test from one of the league’s most disciplined sides. Buriram squandered a chance to take the lead after just six minutes, with Supachok Sarachart’s cutback being missed by both Scepovic and Supachai Jaided, with the latter firing wide in front of a completely open goal.
Buriram win 1:0 and secure 3 points at the opening game! Congratulations to our clients on good debut in Thai Premier League!
