Two of today's hottest football clubs collide in the semifinals of the PFF-Smart Club Championship, and the coach of one of them finds it very challenging.

"It's always a challenge for us to play Global," said Ceres mentor Ali Go ahead of the two squads' semifinal clash at 7 P.M. at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila.

"I think they're one of the best sides. They have a system," Go described Global, the reigning UFL champion.

The defending PFF-Smart champion, however, stunned Global in the quarterfinals of the 2012 edition.

This match could also serve as a preview of what to expect in the upcoming UFL season, where Ceres gained promotion to Division 1.

Fellow Division 1 sides Loyola and Stallion battle in the other semifinal clash at 4 P.M.
