Buriram juggernaut may roll over Sharks

Runaway leaders Buriram United host Chonburi on Wednesday as the Thunder Castle need only seven points from their last six games to win the Thai League 1 title.

On paper, Buriram are heavy favourites against the Sharks who have failed to win in their last four games in all competitions.

Chonburi were held to a 1-1 draw by bottom club Chiangmai United last week.

On the other hand, Buriram look unstoppable as they have sealed six successive wins in all competitions.

They comfortably beat Ratchaburi 2-0 last weekend with goals from in-form Congolese forward Jonathan Bolingi and Peeradon Chamratsamee.

Buriram are 12 points ahead of second-placed Pathum United.

Defending champions Pathum visit relegation contenders Samut Prakan, while struggling Port are at home to Chiang Rai United.

Port have used four coaches this season and Jadet Meelarp began his spell with a 1-0 loss to Prachuap.

Port and Buriram will play in the AFC Champions League play-offs next week while Pathum and Chiang Rai will begin their continental campaigns in the group stages next month.
