Police clash with Boeung Ket gets MCL top billing

The clash between National Police and Boeung Ket rubber on Saturday gets the top billing when a compact card of four matches in the Metfone C League are gone through at the Olympic Stadium over the weekend.

The 2013 MCL runners-up Boeung Ket were in a spot of bother against TriAsia, who led by an early goal for most part of the game. It was in the last 10 minutes that Boeung Ket got going and found two strikes before the final whistle to complete a thrilling victory.

Boeung Ket are hard on the heels of table-topping Phnom Penh Crown and, facing tough opposition like the Police, consolidation could well be their watchword. Police confirmed their superiority over Build Bright United with a 1-0 win last week that followed their Hun Sen Cup final win over the same side two months ago. It is fair to expect a high intensity contest in which the stakes are bound to be high.

In the day’s second fixture, TriAsia take on the punchbags of the competition, Albirex Niigata, who have lost all but one of their 12 matches so far.

In Sunday’s fare, Ministry of National Defence should assert themselves over Western University, whose chances of staying in the Premier League are still under a cloud.

League leaders Phnom Penh Crown, in impressive form, ought to get the measure of Kirivong Sok Sen Chey who have been nagged by indifferent form like never before.

The visitors from Takeo are third from bottom and any slip-ups may pitch them into a fight for survival.
