This year’s Hun Sen Cup has produced several stunning and memorable second-leg come-back in the quarter finals, with three teams needing to knock out their opponents through penalty shoot-outs.
Perhaps, G.C National Police faced the easiest opponents in the quarter finals after beating FFC U18 9-1 on aggregate to secure their semi-final spot.
Ministry of National Defense defeated Preah Khan Reach Svay Rieng 2-1 in the second leg after losing 1-2 in the first leg at home before seeing off the four-time Hun Sen Cup winners on penalty shootouts (5-4).
Boeung Ket, who were beaten 2-0 by Nagaworld in the first leg, appeared to beat their opponents 3-1 in the second leg, but their Hun Sen Cup semi-final dream was ended after losing 2-3 on the penalty shootouts.
Angkor Tiger could have been the only side to produce the most remarkable Hun Sen Cup second-leg come-back after a 3-0 defeat to Phnom Penh Crown in the first leg. Coach Oriol Mohedano’s side stunned the two-time Hun Sen Cup winners with a 4-1 success at the RSN Stadium before downing their opponents 4-3 on the penalty shootouts to claim their semi-final spot in the tournament.
After a dramatic quarter final, the Hun Sen Cup semi-final draw will be made on Monday next week.
