After yesterday's games, Phnom Penh Crown lead the Metfone C-League table by 2 points over BBU. It's a precarious position for Crown as the blue shirts of BBU, or maybe they'll play in white today, will have the opportunity to leapfrog over Crown if they beat Khemara this afternoon in the 4.30pm kick-off. And that's likely considering BBU's recent showings and Khemara's self destruct form of the last few weeks. For BBU to be in serious contention around the half-way stage of the season is a surprise to many, including me. They've got players like Nuth Sinoun and keeper Hem Simay playing out of their skin, skipper Prum Putsethy can conjure a goal out of nothing and playmaker Chhun Sothearath is anchoring midfield alongside the busy Chan Veasna. They aren't the most attractive footballing side in the league, but at the moment, they're the most effective, having only lost one game in seven. In the earlier kick-off, I expect the Army to steamroller Chhma Khmao and if they get stuck in early, it could be a cricket score.
