Bangkok United’s attacking trio take aim at Buriram

Bangkok United will look to their in-form front three as they bid to beat Buriram United for the first time since 2014 on Thai League (T1) Matchday 28.

Nattawut Suksum, Heberty Fernandes and Vander Luiz have been key players in an impressive second half of the season for the Bangkok Angels, though Buriram are also finishing strongly.

Suphanburi have it all to do in their relegation battle as they host BG Pathum United and Ratchaburi aim to extend their unbeaten run to seven matches they face Port FC at the Mitr Phol Stadium.
