Thai League 2020 Early Season Review Podcast

Gian Chansrichawla and Ta Lao


The Thai League has been suspended after just four rounds due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, leaving the sides in limbo after a frenetic and action-packed start to the season.

Bangkok United, who fell short in last season’s title race, have started the season in high gear, collecting four wins from four in impressive style. They are joined by an overperforming Ratchaburi side, who also sit on 12 points and can include a 4-3 victory over Buriram as part of their early-season accomplishments.

Meanwhile, traditional giants Buriram and Muangthong have slumped down the table, collecting just six and four points respectively. The Kirin will have to struggle for a place in the top four during what is shaping up to be a transitional season of youth development, while the Thunder Castle may be missing some key components after failing to strengthen the squad which finished second last season.

The league has also been brightened up by other surprise packages, as Suphanburi and Police Tero have also punched above their weight thus far.
