But Ceres arrived in Myanmar’s largest city and commercial center last Monday, just two days after losing to Kaya Iloilo in the Philippines Football League—a match that the club had requested to be postponed as it was focusing on this crucial AFC Cup clash. With an already compressed schedule this year, the PFL turned down the request.“Preparation has been terrible,” said Ceres co-captain Martin Steuble. “The league and the federation didn’t help us with anything so tomorrow it will all be about how bad we want it and how bad we want to repeat the experience we had last year.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownA brace from Bienve Maranon in the first half put Ceres on its way to victory in the first leg but Yangon grabbed a lifeline when Sekou Sylla scored two away goals.
