The third day of the 2022 season of Myanmar National League Week 6 continued yesterday at the Thuwunna stadium, where the defending champion Shan United beat Rakhine United by two goals.
Defending Champion Shan United, took a five-point lead at the top of the table with a six-game winning streak.
Due to the struggle of the Rakhine United team from the bottom of the table, who have not yet won, the Shan United team had to play hard, but they won with the second-half goals. Shan United did not make major changes to the starting line-up and started with key players, while the Rakhine United team also started with a full set of core players. In the first half, the Shan United team was able to play with more pressure and the Rakhine team played defensively to prevent them from scoring.
Due to the Rakhine team’s defensive play, it was difficult for the Shan United team to score a goal, and as the attacking midfielder Mark Saki was sent off, there were weaknesses in the Shan United team’s connection with the midfield. Shan United made a change of players at the beginning of the second half and the deadlock was broken in the 56th minute.
Shan United’s substitute Ti Nyein Min scored a header from right-back Kyaw Zin Lwin’s cross. After that, the Shan United team was able to control the game and the second goal that would ensure the victory was scored by the defender Ye Min Thu in the 83rd minute. Rakhine United team has yet to get out of the relegation zone with six consecutive defeats and no points. Next, Maha United will take on Yadanabon on 3 August and Myawady will face Hanthawady on 4 August. — Ko Nyi Lay/GNLM
