In the run up to the Metfone C League Championship showdown against NagaWorld, Phnom Penh Crown secured a confidence-boosting 4-1 win over tabble-toppers Boeung Ket Angkor in a friendly at the RSN Stadium on Saturday.
The five-time champions enjoyed a 3-0 first-half cushion through Shane Booysen, Bisan George and In Sodavid, with Booysen stretching the lead to four with a second goal soon after the break.
Boeung Ket found a late consolation goal with the help of on-loan Dzarma Bata, Svay Rieng FC’s leading scorer during the league phase.
The players and officials observed a minute’s silence as a mark of respect for the victims of the Paris terror attacks.
Crown has in its roster five French born players. Crown and NagaWorld will square off on November 22 for the first leg of their title fight while losing semifinalists Boeung Ket and Cambodian Tiger FC will play off for the third place the day before.
