Ceres-Global UFL battle up

Ceres-La Salle and Global rekindle their fierce rivalry Thursday as they dispute top spot in Group B in the United Football League Cup at Rizal Memorial Stadium.

Kickoff is at 6:15 p.m. with reigning UFL league champions Ceres—armed with the most talented roster in the field—seeking a sweep of the group stage.


Global has also won its last four games, but one of those victories—a 2-1 decision over Green Archers—was forfeited after the 2014 league champions exceeded the foreign player limit in their matchday roster.

“It’s one of those games where the players don’t need a lot of motivation,” said Global coach Leigh Manson. “Nobody wants to lose this game.”


Ceres will also use the match as a warmup for its AFC Cup match in Bangladesh on Tuesday.

In the other match, Kaya tries to seal the No. 2 spot in Group A when it battles Forza at 8:30 p.m.
