ATENEO targets a first round sweep in the UAAP Men's football tournament when it plays host to Far Eastern University on Thursday at the Moro Lorenzo Field.
The Blue Eagles have won six games but now face a dangerous Tamaraws side without Jarvey Gayoso, out of their final elimination round game after incurring consecutive yellow cards in their past two games.
In his absence, the Blue Eagles will be leaning on Sam Lim and Mario Ceniza as they take on an FEU squad that has yet to taste defeat but dropped points in the last two games after settling for draws with University of the East and University of the Philippines.
A win by the Tamaraws wuill put them just a point behind Ateneo after the first round.
In the first game it's a battle between two teams in the middle of the pack as University of Sto. Tomas takes on National University.
The Bulldogs are on a two-game win streak after four straight matches without a win.
