In their opening group match last Wednesday, PKR drew 3-3 against under-21 side T&T Hanoi, while Crown defeated Laos National TV 5-1.

On Friday PKR smashed the Lao side 17-0 as Crown fell to T&T 3-0, a result that sent the Hanoi outfit through to the knockout stage.

Another Cambodian invitee, reigning Metfone C-League champions Boeung Ket Rubber Field, have been bracketed in Pool A alongside Laos U21, Ho Chi Minh City and hosts Binh Phuoc.
