Only three weeks remain in the Thai League, yet we are no closer to determining which teams will go down, which clubs will represent Thailand in the AFC Champions League and who will ultimately emerge as champions. An exciting season is gearing up for an even more exciting finish:
The Title Race
Three sides remain in the battle for the 2019 Thai League title. Defending champions Buriram United currently share top spot with Chiangrai United, and would lose on head-to-head if the two sides finished the campaign on equal points.
Two points behind them, a resurgent Port FC are looking to disrupt the party, eager to snap up the chance if either of the top two slip up. Below them, both Bangkok United and Muangthong have a mathematical chance of finishing on top, but that is likely to be fully quashed on Wednesday.
Chiangrai have the added pressure of playing the day after their two title rivals, meaning that they may start the day in third before they face PTT Rayong. Following that, games against recently crowed league cup winners Prachuap and a Suphanburi side that will likely need points on the final day to survive will be a major test of character for the Beetles.
Port and Buriram both have winnable games on Wednesday, but face each other at the Chang Arena after the international break in a game that could well decide the title race.
Buriram United – 51 points: Nakhon Ratchasima (A), Port (H), Chiangmai (A)
Chiangrai United – 51 points: PTT Rayong (A), Prachuap (H), Suphanburi (A)
Port FC – Chainat (H), Buriram United (A), Samut Prakan City (H)
