CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Cebu Football Club (CFC) Gentle Giants will take on their fiercest rival, the Kaya FC Iloilo, as the latter hosts them on Sunday, May 5, in the ongoing Philippines Football League (PFL) at the Iloilo Sports Complex.

This will be the Gentle Giants’ fourth match of the season. So far, they have a clean slate of three wins, while the host team has three wins with one draw.

CFC is ranked No. 4 in the 10-team PFL standings with nine points, while Kaya recently lost its hold of the top spot in the rankings after absorbing the lone draw against the One Taguig last April 27 at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila.
