Sheikh Jamal up against Ceres today

Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club will be looking to complete their AFC Cup campaign with a win when the three-time Bangladesh Premier League champions take on Ceres La Salle FC in their final group match in Bacolod City, Philippines today.

The match will get underway at 5:00pm (BST).

Sheikh Jamal DC were already out of contention for the knockout stages after having lost their first four matches. However, a victory over Tampines Rovers in Dhaka last month have given them hope of finishing their debut campaign in Asia's second-tier club competition on a high.

With Ceres La Salle already on top of the group with nine points and having already qualified, Sheikh Jamal will be hoping that they can catch the Philippines outfit off-guard and win against a side they had lost to by 2-0 goals in the home fixture back in March.

The Dhanmondi giants left Dhaka on Sunday and had only a day's time to train in Philippines. They were boosted by the inclusion of defender Yeasin Khan, who served suspension.

Meanwhile, in the other match of the day, second-placed Selangor FA will play away to Tampines Rovers to decide which of those two teams grab the second qualifying spot.
