The AFC Cup 2018 is all set to enter the fifth matchday in the ASEAN Zone. Here is a look at what awaits us this week: 


GROUP F: 


Boeung Ket (CAM) v Ceres Negros (PHI):

Cambodia's Boeung Ket are at home to Ceres Negros on Matchday five in the ASEAN Zone Group F. The Cambodians desperately need a win to stay alive in the competition. They are placed last with just three points and could crash out of the tournament if they fail to get a win on Wednesday. 

Venue: Olympic Stadium, Phnom Penh
Kick-off: 11 April, 18:30 UTC+7

Home United (SIN) v Shan United (MYA):

Singapore's Home United host Myanmar's Shan United on Wednesday in a crucial Group F clash. The side from Singapore are currently second in the group, three points behind Ceres Negros and need a win to stake their claim for the top spot. Shan United, meanwhile, are flirting with elimination and badly need a win to keep their slim chances alive. 

Venue: Jalan Besar Stadium, Singapore
Kick-off: 11 April, 19:30 UTC+8

 

GROUP G:


Yangon United (MYA) v Bali United (IDN): 

Myanmar's Yangon United are up against Indonesia's Bali United at home in a Group G clash. Yangon, clear at the top of the group by four points, will be looking to seal their spot in the next stage with a win over Bali United on Wednesday. The visitors, who are coming off a goalless draw, need a win to stake their claim for the top spot. It should make for an interesting clash. 

Venue: Thuwunna Stadium, Yangon
Kick-off: 11 April, 15:30 UTC+6:30

Global Cebu (PHI) v FLC Thanh Hoa (VIE) 

Philippines' Global Cebu host Vietnam's FLC Thanh Hoa on Wednesday. Global are rooted to the bottom of the table with just four points but a win could see them potentially climb up to the second spot. They will be buoyed by their previous round win over Yangon United while FLC Thanh Hoa badly require a win themselves to stay alive in the competition. 

Venue: Rizal Memorial Stadium, Manila
Kick-off: 11 April, 19:30 UTC+8

 


GROUP H: 


Song Lam Nghe An (VIE) v Tampines Rovers (SIN):

Vietnamese outfit Song Lam Nghe An are at home to Singapore's Tampines Rovers on Tuesday in a crunch Group H clash. The top three teams in the group are tied on top with seven points each while Tampines Rovers are already eliminated. Song Lam Nghe An will be looking to pummel Tampines and take control of the group, going into matchday six. 

Venue: TVinh Stadium, Vinh 
Kick-off: 10 April, 15:30 UTC+7

Johor Darul Ta’zim (MAS) v Persija Jakarta (IDN):

Malaysia's Johor Darul Ta'zim hosts Indonesia's Persija Jakarta in an exciting clash on Tuesday. Both teams have seven points each and locked on top of the group alongside Song Lam Nghe An. In what is essentially a shootout, both teams are desperate for a win. A draw or a loss won't do either teams a favour. Expect an all out clash in this one. 

Venue: Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta
Kick-off:  10 April, 18:30 UTC+7
