With relegation already decided in the Cambodian Premier League, the attention now shifts to the top order. Realistically, only Build Bright United (BBU) and Spark FC have a chance of making the Super 4 postseason playoffs, although Kirivong Sok Sen Chey and National Defence Ministry could yet place fifth and grab some much-needed prize money. Kirivong will attempt to take crucial points off Phouchung Neak, who have failed to survive for yet another season, having been granted CPL status this year only through the withdrawal of promoted side Kampot. BBU have a sterner test Saturday, facing Phnom Penh Crown, although Crown have already booked their place in the Super 4, and may field a weaker squad ahead of their trip to Singapore to face Bangkok Glass in the Singapore Cup. The weekend's standout fixture is a titanic clash between Preah Khan Reach (PKR) and Naga Corp. PKR have impressed all season and will hope to go into the Super 4 competition finishing top of the league. Naga Corp need a win to effectively guarantee their ticket to next month's playoffs. Sunday's remaining tie sees Khemara Keila play Spark, with Khemara hoping to consolidate their Super 4 place and Spark poised to snatch the lucrative fifth position from BBU.
