Carmelo got his second, and 15th of the season, on 71 minutes, and although Romain Gasmi gave Bangkok United a lifeline, Osmar sealed the contest with Buriram’s fourth goal.
Cesar da Silva then netted an own goal before Adisak Graisorn struck in injury time as Buriram United won well.
Muang Thong United – who are second in the table and four points behind Buriram United – came from behind to beat Bec Tero Sasana 3-1.
Amorn Thammanarm gave the losers the lead after 38 minutes and it was an advantage they carried into the half-time break.
