Boskovic vs Cleiton: Port to Face Chiang Rai in Leo Cup


The draw for the forthcoming Leo Cup pre-season tournament has just been made, and Port have been handed a tough draw against Chiang Rai Utd in the first round, with the game taking place on Tuesday 9 January at 20:00 in Khon Kaen 18:00 in Chiang Mai

The draw pits two of the dark horses for 2018 T1 honours against each other, with both sides splashing the cash during the break, and two of the Scariest SFSs in Thai football history – Port’s Dragan Boskovic and Chiang Rai’s Cleiton Silva – coming face to face.

The other fixtures can be seen in the image above. If Port win, they’ll join the other R1 winners in the semi-finals which are scheduled to take place on the hallowed turf of the PAT on Friday 12 January, with the final being held in the godforsaken Theatre of Corrugated Iron that is the SCG on Sunday 14 January.
