ATENEO and La Salle rekindle their rivalry this time on the pitch as the bitter foes square off in the UAAP Season 79 men's football tournament on Thursday at the Moro Lorenzo field in Quezon City.
Game time is at 4 p.m. following the 2 p.m. fixture between University of the East and University of Santo Tomas. Both games will be televised live on ABS-CBN S+A.
The Blue Eagles have been on a romp to start the season, winning all three outings to start their campaign.
Sophomore sensation Jarvey Gayoso, who already has four goals and had two assists in their 5-1 win over UST, leads the Ateneo attack and looks to improve his playmaking skills in the match against La Salle.
"That's one aspect of the game that I'm looking to improve. Just trying to get more of my teammates involved," Gayoso said.
The Green Booters, on the other hand, will be playing just their third game and want nothing more than to spoil the run of their rivals.
Coming off a 2-0 win over UE, La Salle aims to step up their game even more in hopes of ending Ateneo's perfect start.
