Army aims for uniform bout against AEU

With three semifinal playoff places as good as sealed in favour of Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng, Nagaworld and Boeung Ket at the top of the Metfone C League standings, the fourth placed Army will be under some strain to safeguard their position in the penultimate round action this Saturday.

The Armymen will be up against Asia Europe United who have shown remarkable resilience against stronger teams more than once this season.

There may not be much room for mistakes or misadventures for the Army since anything less than a win would allow their closest rivals Phnom Penh Crown edge dangerously closer.

The six time champions Crown, who are three points behind the Army in fifth place, face National Police.

Leaders Svay Rieng host Western Phnom Penh with the visitors on their current formline unlikely to trouble the home side.

Rwandan Striker Autheire Kipson’s ominously impressive form should keep Nagaworld’s attacking options sharp and incisive. The two-time Champions are way superior in all aspects of the game to CMAC who are struggling at the wrong end of the field.

The trickiest of Sunday’s matches could be the one between Cambodian Tiger and Boeung Ket Angkor.
