Four teams left. Only two will survive.

Tonight, Batangas City will host a pair of MPBL knockout matches which feature their very own Athletics facing the Imus Bandera, while Zamboanga-Family’s Brand Sardines take on the Muntinlupa Cagers.

Expect the Batangas City Coliseum to erupt in a make or break match for the Athletics, the inaugural staging champions who are looking to win back-to-back titles.

But their 9 p.m. encounter could also determine whether they could get past the Bandera, who are equally as determined as they are.

The series between Zamboanga and Muntinlupa has been set up into a rubber match as well, as this after the team from the Sardines Capital of the Philippines snatched one from the Cagers in front of a boisterous crowd on Thursday. The two teams will square off at 7 p.m.

Games are live on ABS-CBN Sports+Action, FOX Sports and on the FOX+ app. You can catch live updates of the games here in our live blog.
