Global FC vs Brunei DPMM (July 24, Wednesday, 8 p.m, Jalan Besar Stadium)

Although Brunei DPMM steamrolled past Lao Police with ease in the preliminary round, Global FC will present much tougher opposition for them.
The United Football League (UFL) side boast several Azkals in their squad, including the ever-reliable Jason De Jong, Misagh Bahadoran and Carli De Murga.
Captain Yu Hoshide is surprisingly not included in their squad while new signing Rufino Sanchez will be making the trip to Singapore.
Sanchez is on a one-month loan from fellow UFL side Stallion FC and was the league top scorer for the recently concluded season with 18 goals.
While confidence appears to be high in the Philippines outfit, the Bruneians are sweating on the fitness of several of their key players as they aim to progress to the semi-final.
Central defender Tales dos Santos is still on the treatment table after pulling a muscle in their clash against Tanjong Pagar United in the S.League, while striker Shahrazen Said is also out injured.
The Wasps will be banking on 40-year-old Sallehuddin Damit to hold the fort at the back while misfiring forward Joao Moreira will be eager to prove his critics wrong.
With coach Vjeran Simunic claiming that ex-Lithuanian international Arturas Rimkevicious is yet to be accustomed with the artificial turf at the Jalan Besar stadium, it may spell yet another barren spell for the 30-year-old.
But DPMM have another potent weapon up their sleeves in 21-year-old Azwan Ali, who was impressive in their previous league match against Geylang United.

The young striker showed flair and confidence with his nifty footwork and he might just prove to be the answer to DPMM’s quest for victory.
