Buriram Made To Fight By Plucky Sisaket In FA Cup Semi-Final

Buriram booked their place in the FA Cup Final against Chiang Rai but Sisaket gave them plenty to think about, particularly in the first-half. Soukaphone’s thunderous strike has to be a major contender for goal of the season. I’m sure Siwarak will have watched a replay because he certainly didn’t see it last night !…

Buriram Put Four Past Sukhothai As They Close In On The Title

  Buriram’s march towards a sixth title continued as they deepened Sukhothai’s relegation worries with four outstanding strikes.

Buriram Battle To Hard Fought 1-0 Victory Over Chiang Rai

Buriram had to dig deep to overcome a determined if somewhat over-physical Chiang Rai side. They had to get over the disappointment of a first minute penalty being overturned by VAR (we’ll discuss that later) and they also had to keep their heads and not get involved in a war of attrition. The visitors are…
