Another set of attackers came in and tormented AEU in the second session Kelechi Stanley and Inui got one each to pad up Bisan George’s double and the rout was complete.

Another home team to suffer at the hands of the visitors were capital club Electicite du Cambodge, who lost 5-0 to Siem Reap side Angkor Tiger.
