Metfone C-League champions NagaWorld welcome Yangon United of Myanmar to Phnom Penh’s Olympic Stadium this evening for their second group game of the ASEAN region AFC Asian Cup 2019.
Another tough test awaits them in the form of Yangon, who reached the ASEAN Zone semi-finals last season, and will be desperate to get their campaign up and running.
Finally making their AFC Cup debut proper 18 years after they were founded, Nagaworld’s dream soon turned into a nightmare as Hanoi put 10 goals in first day of AFC. Coach Meas Channa’s men will have to improve if they are to get anything out of tonight’s match.
Naga are competing for Cambodia in the ASEAN region AFC Asian Cup 2019 and are also up against Tampines Rovers of Singapore and Hanoi of Vietnam.
Nagaworld is a Cambodian team that is the weakest one in this group and i expect it to conceed at least 2 or 3 goals despite playing this one at home.
Yangoon United is the favourite one to win this match and it comes from an away win 0-1 against the team of Rakhine United in its last match played.
Both Teams produce plenty of corners in local grounds so I expect the same here.
