Because the Philippines League has not yet started, it is a great advantage for Ceres Negros as they can prepare themselves for the AFC Cup arena. Also due to of this, the Philippines team has obtained very impressive results in the group stage when it is easy for them to win the first place with 5 victories and only to lose 1 final match when everything is arranged.

Ceres Negros's strengths are the ball control and many quality players. Ceres Negros number 7 - Bienvenido Maranon is one of the most dangerous players who has scored 9 goals in the tournament. This is also the name used to score 3 goals against Hanoi FC in the past. Therefore, the defense of Hanoi will have to follow closely with this face, not allowing him the opportunity to score.
