For the second straight night, a Filipino football club was held to a draw in the 2020 AFC Cup, as Kaya FC-Iloilo battled Singapore's Tampines Rovers to a scoreless 0-0 draw in Group H action, Wednesday evening at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium in Manila.
First half attempts from Kaya's Caryle Mitchell and Takumi Uesato could not find the back of the net, while the Pinoy side's defense stepped up in the second half, preventing the more aggressive visitors from scoring a goal on the road.
With the draw, Kaya FC-Iloilo moves to 1 win and 1 draw in two matches played, good for 4 points and the top of Group H.
Tampines Rovers meanwhile also move to 1 win and 1 draw for 4 points.
Kaya FC-Iloilo returns to action on March 10th in a road game against Indonesia's PSM Makassar at the Gelora Bung Karno Madya Stadium in Jakarta.
