PHNOM PENH--Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng, Boueng Ket, and Visakha FC are all set to win their second straight game as the Cambodia Premier League 1 enters its second week.

Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng faces defending champions Phnom Penh Crown FC this weekend. The Svay Rieng-based side came off a 3-1 victory over Kirivong Sok Sen Chey FC three days ago. 

Phnom Penh Crown FC, meanwhile, was held to a scoreless draw by Tiffy Army FC last weekend and will be looking to earn their first win as both sides face each other in the main game of the Cambodian Premier League 1 (CPL 1) on Saturday at the Smart RSN Stadium in Phnom Penh. The match will start at 6:30 pm.

Three other matches will be played on Saturday, featuring Boeung Ket FC versus Tiffy Army FC; Boueng Ket Angkor defeated Nagaworld in their opening fixtures in week 1 and will be looking to continue their winning streak. Tiger FC who fell 3-1 to Visakha in Week 1 will be looking for their first win of the season when they face off against Kirivong Sok Sen Chey FC; the Takeo based Kirovong SokSenchey themselves suffered a 3-1 defeat in the hands of Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng FC and will be looking to earn their first point.

The final match this weekend in CPL 1 will be a tussle between high-flying Visakha FC and NagaWorld FC.

Visakha is joint top of the table after week 1 alongside Boueng Ket and Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng FC and so will be looking to go for all three points to maintain the top spot. Meanwhile, Nagaworld on the other hand would be looking for their first 3 points to get them off the bottom of the table where they currently sit.
