The Cambodian club, who won their premier domestic competition, the Samdech Hun Sen Cup, earlier this year, will face U21 Hanoi T&T, who beat the Laos U21 team 2-1 in the other semi-final yesterday.

The finalists drew 3-3 in their previous meeting last week during the group stage, and will face off for the trophy and the $4,000 winners’ cheque from 3pm tomorrow at the Dong Xoai field in Binh Phuoc.

Meanwhile, the losing semi-finalists have been awarded joint third in the annual friendly tournament.
