The Cambodian Premier League's midweek game sees 2009 Samdech Hun Sen Cup finalists Phnom Penh Crown and Naga Corp face off in what promises to be a thrilling grudge match today at 3pm at Olympic Stadium. Both teams have recently regained their form after a sluggish start to the season, with Naga intent on avenging the double defeats at the hands of Crown in the Cup final and league opener. With victory, Crown would again pull within one point of league leaders Preah Khan Reach, while Naga would push past Khemara Keila into third on goal difference if they take all three points this afternoon.
