Western and Crown set to clash again

The second week of Hun Sen Cup action, involving group C and D teams today, will see a return clash between Western Phnom Penh and Phnom Penh Crown after their thrilling 2-2 draw on Sunday in the league.

Home side Western appeared to be about to down the six-time League winners when a late equaliser forced them to share the spoils. The teams return to the same venue for their Group C opener.

Last year’s Cup runners-up NagaWorld face Svay Rieng Province at the Olympic Stadium today looking for a big win to make up for the morale-sapping loss to the region’s more illustrious Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng side barely three days ago.

In other matches, Kampong Speu host Kampot and Siem Reap Angkor travel to Kratie, while National Police head to Preah Vihear.
