PTT Rayong VS Muangthong United

2019 Thai League Week 9: Muangthong United Snatch Draw At PTT Rayong

In what turned out to be a fairly even match, newly promoted side PTT Rayong FC hosted Muangthong United at the PTT Stadium with the result being 2-2.

PTT Rayong FC took the lead against Muangthong moments before halftime when Costa Rican international Ariel Rodríguez received the ball out wide. Driving towards the opposition box, Ariel Rodríguez cut inside past Oh Ban-suk before curling the ball past Đặng Văn Lâm at the far post.

Muangthong United piled on the pressure in the second half and were rewarded for their efforts from the penalty spot. Youngster Korrawit Tasa played a driven pass into the feet of Herberty before the Brazilian was brought down in the box by mistimed tackle. Herberty then equalised from the spot kick in the 66th minute.

PTT Rayong FC were soon back in front thanks to another goal from Ariel Rodríguez. Indonesian international defender Victor Igbonefo played the ball forward to Rodríguez, who timed his run well to beat the offside trap. Rodríguez then ran through on goal where his shot was saved by Đặng Văn Lâm. However Ariel Rodríguez was able to react quickly enough to head home the rebound.

The game looked like it was going to end with a home win until Mario Gjurovski was subbed on. The Macedonian started a well worked passing move involving Herberty, Sarach Yooyen, and Teerasil Dangda resulting in Gjurovski receiving the ball back on the edge of Rayong box. As Gjurovski goes to shoot the ball deflects off the heel of Rayong defender Thanakorn Niyomwan and flies into the top corner to level the game at 2-2.
