ASEAN Roster: Aung Thu’s speed duel with Puhiri, Falkesgaard faces Ko Ko

FOX Sports Asia brings you the weekly match schedules of the ASEAN football stars who are plying their trade in Thailand and Malaysia.

After a two-week hiatus, Asian football league action kicked off on Wednesday with a full round of fixtures in Thai League 1.

Buriram United continued their unbeaten streak while Muangthong United snatched a slim victory to keep themselves in contention for the league title.

On the other hand, Malaysia Super League fans will have to wait a little longer to see their favourite stars in action with the league due to resume in mid-April. But at least, the blow will be softened with the Malaysia FA Cup quarter-finals first leg fixtures being played next weekend.

In Thai League action, it is a stern test for Bangkok United’s Michael Falkesgaard as the Filipino goalkeeper is set to face one of Myanmar’s best attackers in the form of Kyaw Ko Ko.

The 26-year-old Falkesgaard and the Angels will host striker Kyaw Ko Ko and Chiangrai United on Sunday! Will Kyaw Ko Ko net his first league goal after scoring for Myanmar? Or can Falkesgaard keep the 25-year-old quiet at the True Stadium?

Elsewhere, Indonesian winger Terens Puhiri is set for a speed showdown with Burmese striker Aung Thu.

The “fastest player in the world” and second-placed Port will head to the Boonyachinda Stadium on Sunday to keep up the pressure on league leaders Buriram United, but Aung Thu and Police Tero will want the three points for themselves. Just who will come out top in this duel of speed?
