Five TPL matches will be played in the capital this weekend, and the pick of them is at the PAT Stadium in Khlong Toey as Thai Port host Army United in another Bangkok derby. The Army have been one of the surprise packages this season, but a 1-1 home draw with Sisaket last weekend suggests they’re quite not the finished article. The Port Lions, meanwhile, were held 1-1 at home by Bangkok Glass last week, and a fascinating match should be on the cards this Sunday (kick off: 4pm). Elsewhere in the capital itself, BEC Tero Sasana host Sriracha at the Thephasadin Stadium on Saturday (kick off: 6pm).
A little further afield, Bangkok Glass welcome Osotspa-Saraburi to Pathum Thani on Saturday (kick off: 6pm). Osotspa stunned everyone last weekend when they smashed five past Muangthong. As such they are possibly narrow favourites to win this one as BG are on an uninspired run of three draws. There’s a derby of sorts in Nonthaburi as ground-sharers Muangthong and TOT meet. The champions are the home side in this Saturday fixture (kick off: 6pm), and they should get their season back on track against a TOT side that has lost four out of four. And Police United will be hopeful of continuing their good form as Samut Songkhram provide the opposition at the Thammasat Stadium on Sunday (kick off: 6pm).
In other fixtures, Pattaya host leaders Buriram PEA in Chonburi. Chonburi themselves are at home to TTM Phichit. Out-of-form Siam Navy are away at Khon Kaen, and Sisaket make the long journey to Chiang Rai. The pick of the Division 1 games in the capital is at the Thupatemee Stadium in Pathum Thani as Air Force United host PTT Rayong on Saturday (kick off: 6pm). Bangkok United and Bangkok F.C are both playing away from home.
