League-leading Kaya-Iloilo is favored to keep its perfect slate intact against newcomer Mendiola in their Philippines Football League match at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

Kaya goes for a fourth straight victory and extend its hold on the top spot in the 4 p.m. match against Mendiola.

The reigning champion of the Copa Paulino Alcantara is coming off a 1-0 win over lowly Global-Makati last Saturday with Alfred Osei scoring the lone goal in the second half.

Iloilo is hoping it could have a better showing against a Mendiola side sitting near the bottom of the seven-team table with one point in three matches.

Stallion-Laguna hopes to keep pace with Kaya as it aims to gain solo second from defending two-time champion Ceres Negros in the 7 p.m. match with Green Archers United.

Stallion is level on points with Ceres at seven points, though the latter remains in second on goal difference.
