PLDT and Far Eastern University look to seal third place, while Meralco and Rizal Technological University try to extend the series on Thursday in the Shakey's V-League Reinforced Conference at The Arena in San Juan.
The women's match between the Turbo Boosters and the Power Attackers is set at 4 p.m. after the 2 o’clock showdown between FEU and RTU.
PLDT edged Meralco on Tuesday, 25-21, 21-25, 20-25, 25-20, 15-11, behind team captain Sue Roces and Gretchel Soltones, who combined for 44 points.
Coach Roger Gorayeb and the Turbo Boosters look to bag bronze anew after their Open Conference third place finish. He believes the PLDT can complete the series sweep as he knows Meralco top hitter Wanida Kotruang very well having played for him for Smart last year.
"Si Kotruang confident siya pumalo, malakas ang atake at nakakadepensa kaya malaking tulong siya sa team niya," said Gorayeb. "Pag pumapalo siya nagbibigay ng conficdence sa team."
Kotruang led the Power Spikers with 18 points, while Aby Marano had 20 markers and Paneng Mercado had 14 points.
In the men's division, FEU goes for the kill against RTU after taking the series opener, 30-28, 21-25, 25-16, 25-23.
Veterans Greg Dolor, Joshua Barrica and skipper Manolo Refugia are expected to take charge for the young Tamaraws.
"Nawawala pa sa focus ang mga players, kaya 'yung tatlong beterano ang inaasahan ko dyan," said FEU coach Kid Santos, who is faces off with his former player George Pascua, who handles RTU.
