Western and Crown set to clash again

The second week of Hun Sen Cup action, involving group C and D teams today, will see a return clash between Western Phnom Penh and Phnom Penh Crown after their thrilling 2-2 draw on Sunday in the league.

Home side Western appeared to be about to down the six-time League winners when a late equaliser forced them to share the spoils. The teams return to the same venue for their Group C opener.

In other matches, Kampong Speu host Kampot and Siem Reap Angkor travel to Kratie, while National Police head to Preah Vihear.
