Suwaiq look to unseat Champions as Round of 16 begins
Tue,12-Jan-16

The HM Cup Round of 16 begins tomorrow amongst much excitement and anticipation to see who will qualify to the quarter finals.

Four games are to be played tomorrow, we look at them each one by one below.

Oman Club and Fanja play each other at the Seeb Stadium kicking off at 5pm. Both sides are strong and have had decent showings in their respective leagues. Fanja, however, boast an impressive line-up of National team players and are probably favourites to win.

Khabourah host Nizwa at the Sohar sports stadium at the same time. It is expected to be a well matched contest with all eyes on Saeed Obaid – the young Khabourah striker who is being hailed as the next big striker for the National team – to see if he can deliver on this big occasion.

Rustaq take on Mirbat in a clash of first division teams. Mirbat caused quite an upset to be in the Round of 16 but both teams are evenly matched and the result can swing either way.

Finaly, Suwaiq play defending champions Al Orouba in the biggest game of the day. The game is at the Sohar sports stadium and even with the home advantage, Suwaiq will need to put in a proper shift to beat the defending champions who are riding high on a derby win with Sur from the previous Round.

Plenty of action in the HM Cup Round of 16, it will be interesting to see if the smaller teams can cause more upsets like they did in the previous rounds.
