Top flight sides Perak, Kedah and Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) enter the return leg with only a one-goal advantage. Will the international break affect the rhythm of some or will it improve their fortunes?
Kuala Lumpur vs Perak
Fri April 1 | Selayang Stadium | 9pm
Last meeting: KL 0 Perak 1 (FA Cup)
Form: Perak – WDWDD; KL – LDWWD
Player to watch: Vokhid Shodiev (Perak)
Billed as: KL’s bid to upset order
Shahrul Saad and Thiago Junior Aquino could be put under pressure if Perak’s attack fails to grab their chances at the other end. This match should have been over but the Bos Gaurus squandered a host of chances, including point-blank sitters in the first leg.
Perak are having problems finding the back of the net this season, only managing one goal in five Malaysia Super League (MSL) outings. Their defence, however, have been difficult to breach in those matches, conceding only two goals.
Prediction: KL 1 Perak 0 (KL to win on penalties)
