Ceres looks to snatch top spot from SG's Tampines Rovers
Ceres-La Salle has a chance to jump to the top spot of Group E with a win over Singapore's Tampines Rovers

Reigning UFL Champions Ceres-La Salle FC will try to overtake Singapore’s Tampines Rovers for the top spot in Group E of the 2016 AFC Cup when they face off at the Jalan Besar Stadium in Singapore, Tuesday evening.

After an exciting 2-2 draw against Selangor in Bacolod last month,  the star-studded Ceres-La Salle side picked up their first win of the 2016 AFC Cup a week ago, scoring a 2-0 win over Bangladesh’s Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi  Club, courtesy of a brace from Adrian Gallardo, who’s been the main man for “The Busmen” so far.

Currently at second place in Group E with one win and one draw for four points, a win tonight rockets them to the top spot of the group.

It won’t be an easy out for the Pinoy side however, as the Singaporean champions have been pretty dominant so far in the Group Stages, demolishing Sheikh Jamal, 4-0 back in February, and then turning Selangor back 1-0 last week.

The Tampines Rovers currently control the top spot of Group E with two wins and six points.
