MANILA, Philippines — Global looks to extend its winning run to eight games against a dangerous Pasargad side Saturday in the United Football League at the University of Makati field.
Hoping to sustain its brilliance even with an undermanned side, Global can go five points clear with a victory in the 2 p.m. match that will be followed by the Stallion-Air Force Phoenix tussle. Both matches will be shown live on AKTV on IBC13.
Pasargad is fresh from posting the biggest upset of the season - a 4-3 shocking of Loyola Meralco – giving the newly-promoted side a confidence boost ahead of the clash against the pacesetter.
“The win against Loyola will hopefully give us the momentum in our remaining matches,” said Pasargad coach Joey Villarino.
Pasargad boasts of plenty of attacking options in Shayan Jafaredestjerdi – the hattrick hero against the Sparks - Milan Mehgandom and Mohamed Ohadi, who scored on a bicycle kick in his debut last Wednesday.
