Ceres Negros aims to cement its place in the ASEAN Zonal semifinals when it faces winless Shan United today in the AFC Cup at the Thuwunna Stadium in Yangon, Myanmar.

A victory in the 4 p.m. local time (5 p.m. Manila time) match will give the Busmen the top spot in Group G and a trip to the zonal semis for the third straight year.

The Bacolod side heads into the match carrying loads of confidence after staging a stunning comeback from two goals down to beat Persija Jakarta, 3-2, in front of 35,000 fans last week in the Indonesian capital.

Ceres kept its perfect record after four matches with 12 points, five clear of second-running Becamex Bing Duong of Vietnam.
