Crown, Naga line up for final fling

After a 2-0 victory over arch rivals NagaWorld in the first leg, defending Champions Phnom Penh Crown go into the final game of the Metfone C League championship showdown as favourites in a showdown slated for a 6pm kickoff at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday.

If Crown can see off Naga, Sam Schweingruber’s side will claim their sixth title.

Two-time champs Naga face an uphill task with that two goal arrears weighing heavily. But coach Meas Channa has made it plain that the team will not go down without a fight.

Buoyed by their semifinal win over Vietnamese champions Becamex in the Toyota Mekong Club Championship, Boeung Ket will be keen to finish the domestic league season in third place.

They face Cambodian Tiger FC in the second leg of the playoffs this evening. The kickoff is set for 6pm at the Olympic Stadium.

In a seven-goal thriller, league toppers Boeung Ket Angkor bounced back from two goals down to beat Cambodian Tiger FC 4-3 in the first leg.
