Crowd-favorite Choco Mucho and F2 Logistics, whose semifinal aspirations in the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference hang by a thread, battle different foes on Tuesday as the league plays at fabled Smart Araneta Coliseum for the first time.
Tied for fourth spot at 2-2, the Cargo Movers and import Lindsay Stalzer battle powerhouse Creamline while the Flying Titans, who are at 2-3 and out of the playoff picture at the moment, take on lightweight, also-ran UAI-Army.
The Cool Smashers, seeking to complete a Grand Slam with another title run here, and the Cargo Movers clash in the 5:30 p.m. contest, a game that Creamline would also not want to lose as it tries to stay sharp heading into the semifinals.
Choco Mucho could have it easier in the 2:30 p.m. game, as the Lady Troopers have been booted out as early as last week.
Creamline, unbeaten in five games, and the 5-1 Chery Tiggo side have already booked tickets to the playoffs, with idle Petro Gazz will stay in third at 3-1 regardless of the results on Tuesday.
