Ceres-Negros in Group G shot the lead when it battled host Becamex Binh Duong in the second matchday of the AFC Cup at the Binh Duong Stadium in Thu Dau Mot City, Vietnam.
Busmen look to size up their 3-2 win over Myanmar’s Shan United in the 6 p.m. local time (7 p.m. Manila time) game though coach Risto Vidavokic spoken concern on how his team finished the match in the opener.
Ceres had to brush aside Shan United’s eleventh-hour effort in salvaging a draw before attaining full three points at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City.
“As a team, we played very good. We defended together, we attacked together. The problem is we made some individual mistakes during the game,” Vidakovic said.
Vidakovic banks on OJ Porteria, who tallied twice against Shan United, Bienvenido Maranon, Stephan Schrock and Martin Steuble against Becamex.
Becamex was held to a scoreless draw by Persija Jakarta in Indonesia in the opener but was expected to draw forte playing in front of supporters.
