Advantace Naga as Boeung Ket face make-or-break test

Boeung Ket Angkor may be feeling that topping the Metfone C-League phase might have been easy compared to what they are up against at the Olympic Stadium this evening.

The 2012 champs and runners-up for the next two seasons confront the sternest of tests they have face this campaign against NagaWorld in a must-win game in which they overcome a two-goal deficit from the first leg defeat.

Fresh from their 2-0 win over the Lao league champs in the opening game of the Toyota Mekong Club Championships at Vientiane last Sunday, Boeung Ket will again be leaning heavily on their goalscoring machine Chan Vathanaka.

The 21-year-old striker has 55 goals in all competitions so far this season, with 35 of them coming in the league phase during which he also became the first player ever to score eight goals in one game.

Nagaworld will be determined to ride their advantage home. Coach Meas Channa, who narrowly missed out on the Hun Sen Cup, has set his sights firmly on League success for the team since their previous triumph in 2009.

As these two sides battle it out, the eyes of Phnom Penh Crown will be on the contest to see who it will be they meet in the final showdowns next month.
