Svay Rieng coach Sam Vandeth told the Post: “I don’t think we can beat Crown in this game, but we will try to make things very hard for them.

"Striker Dzarma Bata is a doubt through injury for the holders, while midfielder Chhoun Veasna is out due to his red card in Mongolia during their AFC President’s Cup qualifier on May 3.

Crown, bolstered by the addition of Australian star Adriano Pellegrini, will look to continue the sterling form that had them thrash AEU 9-1 over the weekend.
