Crown to face Dordoi in AFC President’s Cup group stage

The draw for the May 3-13 group stage of the 2012 AFC President’s Cup was made yesterday afternoon at the AFC House in Kuala Lumpur, with Cambodian league champions Phnom Penh Crown bracketed with Kyrgyzstan powerhouses Dordoi-Bishkek, Bhutan’s Yeedzin FC and Nepal Police Club.

While last year’s beaten finalists Crown should have no problems in dispatching the latter two opponents, Dordoi pose a significant threat of grabbing the top spot in Group B, having made the final of the continental club competition on every occasion they’ve participated and won it twice.

However, home advantage may well play a part in proceedings for Crown. Group A to be played in Pakistan, features the holders Taiwan Power Company along with hosts KRL FC, LSJ Dhanmondi Club Ltd of Bangladesh and newcomers Erchim FC of Mongolia.

Group C pits Tajikistan hosts FC Istiklol  against Balkan of Turkmenistan, Palestine’s Al-Am’ari Youth Club and Ratnam Sports Club of Sri Lanka.
