Now that the quarter-finalists have been decided in the Samdech Hun Sen Cup competition, here is a reminder of who will play who on the weekend of 26 and 27 February. The matches have been put off until then as the Cambodian national team have two matches against Macau, home and away, in the AFC Challenge Cup qualifying round. On Saturday 26 February Preah Khan Reach will kick-off at 2pm as they face the underdogs from Prek Pra Keila. Phnom Penh Crown and Build Bright United provide the juiciest encounter of the last eight of the competition, with a 4.30pm start. BBU finished 2nd in the regular C-League campaign last term though Crown eventually won out in the play-off final to claim the Championship trophy. Crown were also beaten finalists in the Hun Sen Cup when they were beaten by the Army. The Sunday match-ups will see Naga Corp take on the new C-Leaguers in National Police Commissary at 2pm. The later match will pit the Army team against a resurgent Kirivong Sok Sen Chey. The Golden Boot award is currently tied at 16 goals apiece between PKR's Khuon Laboravy and Kirivong's In Vichheka. My money is on Laboravy, after his hat-trick in the last round against Rithy Sen - the man is on fire.
