Crown face stern test; Cup finalists rematch

With Svay Rieng and Naga Corp heading to next week’s tilt at the Singapore Cup in the city-state, the Metfone C-League fixtures for this weekend have been reduced to a compact program of four matches, all taking place at the Olympic Stadium.

Crown bounced back from a three-goal deficit after just half an hour against Svay Rieng on Wednesday, forcing a 3-3 draw and proving yet again that they are one of the hardest bunch to down in their current form.

But on Sunday, Crown will face a resurgent Ministry of National Defence, who after their beating of Naga last week will be sharpening their knives for another giant slaying.

Sparks are bound to fly in this contest, which kicks off at 3:30pm.

After this marquee match-up will be a rerun of the Hun Sen Cup final between National Police Commissary and Build Bright United.

Obviously the University-backed side, which is holding its form quite well, will be sharply focused on a revenge of sorts for their 2-0 loss. The Police, who hit a few bumps after their return to the league, found their true bearings in the previous outing and will be keen to get going against a side that they outclassed when they last met.

After their 9-1 thrashing by Crown, AEU will be anxious to put that disconcerting experience behind. They are up against Western University, who are struggling with their own wobbly form.

Tomorrow’s stand-out game will feature 2013 runners-up Boeung Ket Rubber Field and MCL debutants TriAsia. Boeung Ket, who – hard on the heels of front–running Crown – will be hoping to edge much closer.
