Cup fever

It's the final of the Hun Sen Cup tomorrow (Saturday) with the favourites Preah Khan Reach taking on Build Bright United at 3pm at the Olympic Stadium in Phnom Penh. I predict a win for PKR, who have begun the season like a runaway train with Khuon Laboravy in particular, on fire with 21 goals to-date. BBU beat Phnom Penh Crown and the Army en route to the final and will have their tails up but on paper, they aren't quite strong enough. A lot will depend on the return of their midfield playmaker Chhun Sothearath, who PKR will look to negate, whilst BBU will seek to manacle Laboravy, probably with a man-to-man marking job for one of their defensive team like Tuy Sam. The 3rd place play-off takes place this afternoon (Friday) at the stadium, at 3pm, when the Army meet Naga Corp. I would sense that Naga will bust a gut to recover from their inept showing last week against PKR by claiming third spot.
Stop Press... Naga Corp claimed 3rd place with a 1-nil victory over the Army at Olympic Stadium this afternoon. Kop Isa scored the only goal of the game two minutes before half-time.

Hi Andy, I have different idea and my prediction is that BBU will beat PKR.

I trust No. 11, Sem Bunny who return from long time injury in spite of showing little influence on the match last week.

Wait and see heheehhe.
