Ceres, Shan United
in Panaad tomorrow


Ceres-Negros FC puts its unbeaten run at stake when the team clashes against Shan United of Myanmar tomorrow in Group F Match Day 3 of the 2018 AFC Cup.

Kick off time is at 7:30 p.m.

It will be the second encounter between the two teams, after the Filipino squad beat Myanmar on penalties in the first round of the Champions League almost two months ago.

After crashing out of the AFC Champions League, both teams shift their focus on the AFC Cup, where the stakes in their next match are more important after the results in Match Day 2.

Ceres-Negros leaned on a late equalizer from Super Herrera to salvage a 1-1 draw against Home United in Singapore seven days ago, while Shan United dealt BoeungKet FC their second loss in Phnom Penh.

The busmen will be keen to get back in home soil after a disappointing performance in Singapore. The Busmen had difficulty finding their range after only making five shots on target the whole match.

The Negros squad need to figure out how to deal with defenses, similar to Home United’s, which aims to frustrate and limit the their goal scoring capabilities.

Both teams will play consecutive matches in the group stage in March, first in Bacolod and next in Yangon on the 13th.

With only a point separating the top three, the next two matches will be treated as knock out games given that only one team is assured of qualification to the next round.*ceres.com
