Thunder Forecast for Round of 16

 

The draw for the last 16 of the Chang FA Cup was made earlier this afternoon, with Port landing a home tie vs. Buriram. With the former serial winners (of everything) from Isan well off the pace in the league and the League Cup having a fallow year, due to COVID, the FA Cup looks like Buriram’s only realistic chance of silverware. So expect them to come to the game fully committed. Port have thus far used their FA Cup defence as an opportunity to rest the majority of regular league starters, a policy that might not be continued against higher calibre opposition than in the previous rounds.

The game takes place on Wednesday 13th January.

 


 

The other fixtures in the round are:

  • Muang Loei vs. Chiang Rai or Sukhothai
  • Chonburi vs. Suphanburi
  • Udon United vs. Bangkok United
  • Muangthong vs. Samut Prakan City
  • Songkhla vs. Ratchaburi
  • Trat vs. Chiangmai
  • Muangkan vs. Nongbua Pitchaya
