JDT and Sabah try to stay out of trouble

KUALA LUMPUR: What happens when the Rhinos lock horns with the Southerrn Tigers?

The last time it happened, on Tuesday, there were 11 yellow cards as 10-man Johor Darul Ta'zim sudued Sabah 1-0 in the Malaysia Cup semi-final first leg at Likas Stadium.

Expect both teams to tread carefully in the return leg at Sultan Ibrahim Stadium tomorrow to avoid further bookings.

Sabah coach Ong Kim Swee said his team still have a chance as they trail only by a goal, and there are still 90 minutes to go.

Kim Swee will bank on vibrant youngsters Gerald Gadit and Hanafie Tokyo to take the fight to JDT.

JDT coach Hector Bidoglio said: "It will be a difficult game but we played well in the first leg."

The odds are stacked against Sabah who last reached the Malaysia Cup semi-finals in 2018 before losing 7-2 on aggregate to Perak.

In the last three clashes between the two teams this season, Sabah lost in all the games. In the Super League, Sabah were edged 2-1 by JDT in July and this was followed by a 3-0 defeat in October.
