Follow by Email

It was a bad,bad day for Kuala Lumpur as the City Boys fell to a crushing 3-0 defeat to Selangor at home in the Battle of the Klang Valley in the first-leg FA Cup quarter-final match at the KLFA Football Stadium in Cheras on Saturday.
Down to only 10 players after only 26 minutes of play Kuala Lumpur suffered another blow at the start of the second-half when coach Fabio Maciel was banned to the stands after a clash with a Selangor player during the first-half break.
By then the City Boys were already 2-0 down in a hotly contested match. The Red Giants opened scoring after 20 minutes with Willian Pacheco planting a header off a freekick by skipper Amri Yahyah.
Five minutes later Selangor hammered the second goal through their Spanish hitman Rufino on Segovia with a close range attempt before he completed his brace on the night deep into added time.
At the Shah Alam Stadium it was a 2-1 win for Selangor club PKNS FC against Perak – a win that may not be enough the Datuk K. Rajagobal and company.
Perak’s injury time goal by Wander Luiz gave them an away goal lifeline that could be crucial for the return-leg.
PKNS FC led 1-0 by the 25th minute with Singapore international Faris Ramli curling ball past the outstretched hand of Perak custodian, international Hafizul Hakim. Former Malaysian international Safee Sali headed home the second for the club side from a Mahali Jasuli cross.
Felda United take an away goal advantage in their 1-0 win over Perak SEDC (PKNP) for the return-leg which will be played at the Tun Abdul Razak Stadium in Jengka.
On Friday last year’s runners-up Pahang, who knocked out defending champions Kedah with a 1-0 win in the third round, were held to a scoreless draw by Johor Darul Takzim.BY RIZAL ABDULLAH
