Before the game started, there had been heavy rain and so the pitch was waterlogged and muddy when the players got on the field, making it difficult to play fluid football.

Nonetheless in the 21st minute Chiang Mai took the lead when Rungrat Phumjantuek scored. In the 36th minute Senegalese Aliou Shek scored again and the half ended 0-2.

In the second half Chiang Mai FC came out storming and were paid for their efforts with a string of goals. Aboubakar, the Ivorian striker hit the target twice, while Ousmane Toure and Anucha Chaiwong also scored. The game finished 0-6.

Chiang Mai FC is still in the league’s top position with 62 points from 26 games. The next game will be on Wednesday 15th August against Sukhothai FC at 700 Year Stadium.
