Preview: Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi v Ceres

Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi will host Ceres FC at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka on Tuesday’s 2016 AFC Cup action.

The hosts will be eager to right the wrongs of their 4-0 drubbing they suffered at the hands of Tampines Rovers in their opening fixture in February, leaving them at the bottom of Group E.

The Bangladeshi club have to cast their minds back to August 2015 for their last AFC Cup win, which was a promising 4-1 victory over Benfica from Macau.

Meanwhile, Ceres are coming off a thrilling 2-2 draw with Selangor. After Stephan Schrock netted the opener, the Malaysian outfit struck back twice. Ceres’ Adrian Gallardo then equalised just before full-time to earn them a point.

The Philippines club will be hoping Gallardo can continue his fine form when they travel to Dhaka on Tuesday for the club’s first ever clash against Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi.

Catch Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi v Ceres live on FOX Sports from 8pm HKT.
