Boeung Ket face Global; Naga draw Hougang

Boeung Ket Angkor and NagaWorld have drawn Global FC and Hougang United respectively in next month’s quarterfinals of the ongoing RHB Singapore Cup.

The two Metfone C-League clubs won their preliminary round matches at the end of May and face the prospect of meeting each other in the semifinals if they win their games.

Boeung Ket produced a bold performance against Warriors FC, beating the S-League club 4-1 on the back of striker Khun Laboravy’s hat-trick.

Philippine giants Global had beaten Boeung Ket twice during the AFC Cup Group F contests, winning 2-0 at Olympic Stadium in early March before beating the Cambodian league champs 3-1 in the return clash two months later.

NagaWorld beat 2014 winners Balestier Khalsa 4-3 in their preliminary round match. In the top half of the quarterfinal draw, Tampines Rovers take on Albirex Niigata, while Brunei DPMM clash with Home United.
