Boeung Ket tackle Svay Rieng

Boeung Ket Rubber Field, who are hot on the heels of Metfone C-League leaders Phnom Penh Crown, cross paths with the team that wrested the championship from them last year, Svay Rieng, at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday.

However, the 2013 finalists take the pitch in differing moods – Boeung Ket brimming with confidence and Svay Rieng having been drained of it following a dramatic drop in form over recent weeks.

Being well in touch with the front-running Crown, Boeung Ket will obviously be keen on maintaining that position while Svay Rieng will be equally anxious to put their campaign on a better footing.

Meanwhile, a midweek 1-1 result against Build Bright United has made the title chase a lot harder for Naga Corp, though the 2009 champions are lying third in the table.

In Sunday’s second fixture, Naga face Asia Europe University, who were involved in a thrilling six-goal draw against Ministry of National Defence last week.

In tomorrow’s action at the same venue, Ministry of National Defence will take on National Police Commissary while Kirivong Sok Sen Chey, who for the first time this season were forced into a demotion slot following their defeat by Western University last weekend, will meet TriAsia.

Away at the Old Stadium, Crown will be hoping to extend their lead at the top with a victory over Western, while BBU, who are eyeing a remunerative placing this season, may find Albirex Niigata an easy picking.
