Buriram Bow Out Of AFC Champions League Despite Siwarak Heroics But They Can Hold Their Heads High

Two sensational strikes, one in either half, were enough to send Buriram out of the Champions League. The Korean league leaders won 2-0 to go through 4-3 on aggregate. It was always going to be tough for Buriram after that injury-time strike in the home game. It could have been much worse for the Thai…

Late Goal Spoils Buriram’s Party As Superb Second-Half Performance Stuns Koreans

Buriram’s romance with the Champions League continued with a 3-2 victory over heavily-fancied Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors. It looked like it was going to be even better for the Thai champions when they led 3-1 but a stoppage-time goal for the Koreans gave them a second away goal leaving the advantage with the K League leaders….

A Diogo-inspired Buriram United recorded their biggest ever win over their bitter rivals to send their deliriously happy fans rushing out of the stadium to celebrate.

Buriram Fall To Another Defeat On The Road At Sukhothai

Buriram went down to their second successive 1-0 away defeat at Sukhothai but they can count themselves very unlucky to lose a game they dominated for much of the time. A combination of poor finishing and dreadful refereeing was responsible and it leaves them only two points clear at the top. Ironically, this was Buriram’s…

Buriram Take The Points With A Lack-Lustre Display Against Nakhon Ratchasima

Buriram came from behind to beat local rivals Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) 2-1 and maintain their five point lead at the top of the table.
