5 p.m. – Magwe vs Global
(Panaad Stadium, Bacolod City)
7:30 p.m. – Ceres vs Hanoi
Global looks to draw closer towards a spot in the knockout stage overseas while Ceres-Negros fights for dear life at home as they resume their respective campaigns tonight in the AFC Cup.
Hoping to capitalize on its stunning 3-2 home victory over Johor Darul Ta’zim two weeks ago, Global tries to tighten its grip on the Group F lead against Magwe at 5 p.m. Philippine time at the Youth Training Centre in Yangon, Myanmar.
On the other hand, Ceres eyes a much-needed win against Vietnamese side Hanoi at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City and atone for its 3-0 defeat to Felda United last April 4 in Shah Alam, Malaysia.
Global is in a good position to earn a place in the ASEAN zone semifinals of Asia’s second-tier football competition after pulling off an unexpected win over JDT, the AFC Cup winner in 2015 and one of Malaysia’s premier clubs.
Three goals in the first half courtesy of Dennis Villanueva, Shu Sasaki and Amani Aguinaldo set the tone for what was described as the biggest win in the history of Global.
