Police Tero vs Buriram United match information

Time: 19:00 (GMT+8) on February 16th

Venue: Boonyachinda Stadium

Competition: Thai League 1 2020

The host had a splendid 2019 season. They clinched the promotion after being relegated a year earlier by finishing 2nd last season in the Thai League 2. They were not as impressive as the champion BG Pathum United, but they managed to score plenty of goals on the course of being promoted.

Facing them at home for the first match back in Thailand's football top flight is the runner-up Buriram United. The team lost the championship in the most extraordinary way. They tied the champion Chiangrai United in term of points, wins, draws and losses, and even better at goal difference, but lost the title due to head-to-head.

Back in 2018, the two sides met each other 2 times, when Buriram United remained victorious in both ties.

Buriram United will certainly want to forget last season, and aim for the better one. The next match against Police Tero will be the chance for them to revenge and run away with the championship once again.
