1' FIRST HALF - Finally the thumbs up is given and we are able to start with Muangthong United kicking off to begin the first half.
We are still not yet able to start as the officials scramble for some additional pegs to secure the netting.
The players are ready and in position however there is a significant delay in the kick off with an issue found with the net at one end of the ground.
The two teams are out on the pitch and we are moments away from the kick off.
An excellent result last start against the Kashima Antlers has kept the Brisbane Roar in contention for a spot in the Round of 16.  Their confidence will be high after surviving a thrilling penalty shootout against the Western Sydney Wanderers to advance to the A-League semifinals - though they will be without Corey Brown and Avram Papadopoulos this evening with both missing due to suspension.
Muangthong United are currently unbeaten and sit two points clear at the top of the Group E standings - a win tonight will see them progress to the Round of 16.  As well as leading Group E in the Asian Champions League, they also sit at the top of the Thai Premier League.
The Asian Champions League Matchday 5 continues at Thunderdome Stadium in Nonthaburi with Muangthong United playing host to Brisbane Roar.
