Visakha get chance to the harry leaders

With leaders Boeung Ket losing 2-0 last Friday to Ministry of National Defense and so not playing this weekend, the pressure could be on the defending champions in the top half of the Metfone C-League table this weekend if NagaWorld and Visakha continue their winning ways.

Having impressed in their debut season, tormenting some of the league’s best, Visakha have drawn perhaps the most desirable opposition to further boost their points tally and confidence.

They play the hapless Western Phnom Penh – who are yet to win a match after 15 gameweeks – at Old stadium on Saturday, while struggling heavyweights Phnom Penh Crown and Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng clash at RSN Stadium.

Away at Olympic Stadium, National Police, who will be in an upbeat mood after Wednesday’s Hun Sen Cup quarterfinal first leg win over Bati Football, will face Soltilo Angkor at Olympic Stadium.

On Sunday, NagaWorld travel to the AEU Park to take on Asia Europe United, while Electricite du Cambodge will entertain their visitors from Siem Reap, Angkor Tiger.
