Live Commentary

  • 90' + 7'
    That's all from me guys and thanks for tuning in amidst all the technical difficulties. Until we meet again and this is me (@alfalahabdullah) signing off. Selamat malam semua!
  • 90' + 7'
    FULL TIME! Reduced to 10-man, Selangor put in a valiant effort to seal a valuable away draw against Maziya who found it hard to make their advantage count. Durakovic's boys will take this one! They should be applauded for their determined display today.
  • 90' + 4'
    FREE KICK! Rangel with a speculative effort! Nishah did well to tip tat one over. Good technique by the Brazilian striker.
  • 90' + 2'
    Maziya passing the ball around with ease, trying to make their numerical advantage count but Selangor are defending well at the moment.
  • 90'
    SEVEN minutes of added time signaled by the assistant here. Yes, you've read it right. Seven minutes.
  • 89'
    COUNTER! Andik with another burst right at the heart of the Maziya defence and he finds Kunanlan with space...the national winger however made the wrong decision and the danger was cleared away.
  • 88'
    Fitri's delivery easily snuffed out by the Maziya defence. It has to be said here, the pitch conditions is poor by AFC's standards.
  • 87'
    Less than three minutes remaining to full time. Can Fitri Shazwan find his target through the freekick?
  • 80'
    Full marks to Selangor who despite being down to 10-man, continues with their relentless effort to find that seemingly elusive second goal.
  • 75'
    COUNTER! Andik and Rangel on the break for Selangor but the Brazilian's shot was well defended by Maziya. Decent move by the Red Giants.
  • 71'
    CHANCE! Farizal Marlias missed his interception but Rashid could only head the cross wide. Close shave for Selangor there.
  • 67'
    Gurusamy with another free kick but it was poor delivery by the national midfielder. Paulo Rangel had every right to be disappointed there.
  • 61'
    FREE KICK! Gurusamy with a rifled effort straight into the hands of Maziya goalie Nishah.
  • 60'
    We are past the hour mark and 10-man Selangor have it all to do here to get that second goal.
  • 51'
    RED CARD! Hamsani receives a straight red for that reckless tackle and Selangor will need to dig deep to seal an away win.
  • 51'
    GOAL! The home side have equalised through a penalty kick after a rash challenge by veteran goalie Hamsani Ahmad.
  • 45'
    And we're back with our updates here. Thanks for your patience, guys.
  • HALF TIME! Folks, our technical issues are still not sorted out. However, we can confirm that Selangor's centreback Pantelidis has given the Red Giants the lead in the 44th minute.
  • 20'
    It is now the 20th minute in Maldives, but still goalless. Maziya are no pushovers as Kelantan found out last season.
  • 5'
    We're facing some technical difficulties at the moment. Our apologies for this error.
  • 1'
    And we're underway here folks!
  • Here's an interesting fact about these two teams - both are last season's runners-up of their respective leagues.
  • Selamat petang semua! Welcome to Goal Malaysia's LIVE commentary of today's AFC Cup clash. You are here with me, Falah Abdullah (@alfalahabdullah)
