Football: Red Giants the first team to enter quarter-finals
PETALING JAYA: Selangor exacted revenge over Kelantan at the Shah Alam Stadium last night to become the first team to reach the Malaysia Cup quarter-finals.
They won the Group A match 4-1 with national player Indra Putra Mahayuddin scoring a brace in the 16th and 20th minutes and skipper Mohd Shukor Adan and Elie Aiboy going on target in the 40th and 72nd minutes. Kelantan scored their solitary goal through Mohd Badri Radzi in the 90th minute.
Kelantan's early fire fizzled out and they were blunt in attack after having parted ways with their prolific goal-getter, Senegalese Mouhamadou Moustapha, who had scored 32 goals in the 33 matches for them this season.
To the fore: Selangor’s Elie Aiboy scored the last goal in Selangor’s 4-1 win over Kelantan at the Shah Alam Stadium Tuesday night.
The win for the Red Giants, who were beaten 2-5 by Kelantan in the first round, put them in an unassailable position for a top two finish in the group.
They are on 19 points with two matches remaining against Terengganu at home on Friday and against Malacca away on Aug 2.
In Paroi, Negri Sembilan beat Sarawak 3-0 with three late goals by S. Kunalan (81st), Udo Fortune (82nd) and K. Ravindran (90th) to keep their slim quarter-final hopes alive. The Deer, who have one match to play against Kelantan at home on Aug 2, are in fourth spot on 13 points.
Kelantan dropped to third spot on 14 points while Terengganu, playing for the first time at the new Sultan Mizan Stadium in Gong Badak, scored a 4-0 win over lowly Malacca to move up to second place on 16 points.
In Group B, Kedah thrashed Sabah 5-1 at the Darulaman Stadium in Alor Star to move to second spot on 15 points and they trail Police, who drew 0-0 with Kuala Lumpur at the Selayang MC Stadium, on an inferior goal difference.
The battle in Group C has turned into a three-horse race with UPB-MyTeam still leading the pack on 18 points.
The club side were not in action last night and Perlis and Perak closed in on them with 16 and 15 points respectively.
The Northern Lions thrashed Armed Forces 4-0 while Perak edged Johor Pasir Gudang 1-0.
