MANILA--Stallion looks to get back to winning form as it battles Socceroo in a rare UFL Division 1 match on Monday evening at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

Scheduled for a 5:15 p.m. kickoff, the fifth-placed Stallion will try to shrug off whatever was left from its huge upset loss to Manila Jeepney last Wednesday against another team at the bottom of the standings in Socceroo.

Amassing 21 points, just a draw behind Global, Kaya, and Loyola, after 11 matches, Stallion's win will catapult the club to provisional second place and could stay at that spot if Pachanga stuns Global in the nightcap.

Currently eight points behind league-leading Ceres, Global will attempt to inch closer to the championship race against Pachanga, which has been struggling this season, in the 7:45 p.m. match-up.
