KHM Super Cup Race for semi-finals resumes

The ISI Palm KMH Super Cup resumes on Tuesday evening after the Water Festival, heading to a blanket finish for semi-final spots after the final group stage matches over the next couple of days at the KMH Stadium in Chaom Chao.

With KMH All Stars and Bei Jeng Family FC the only teams well placed to grab a slot in the last four, the four other teams battling to make the cut are Japanese All Stars, African All Stars, KMH United and Avatar – with head-to-head results considered in the event of a tie on points, not goal difference.

The most interesting pairing is between KMH Stars and the Japanese. Khmer United, facing bottom side Europeans, may tweak the equation in their favour.

Meanwhile, KMH leading scorer Michael Abiodun warned rivals: “We will go all the way for a win.”

The Africans, who take on unbeaten Bei Jeng, will be under the most pressure.

Avatar on the other hand meet World All Stars, who have fared badly in both their outings.
