|Nothing much needs to be said about Shahrom Kalam's defensive capabilities, he has been one of Selangor's brighter performers this season. Not to mention that his partnership with Pantelidis has been relatively solid as well. But going up against Dabo will not be that easy. The Terengganu forward possesses great upper body strength and can be a nuisance to defenders, especially in holding them off to allow his teammates to get into offense mode. Shahrom will most likely be tasked with keeping him at bay and he needs to be at his level best to do that. We all know what Terengganu are capable of when they hit the right note, and Dabo will be pivotal to that. If Selangor can silence him on the day, they stand a higher chance of nicking a victory in this one.

|This is another key battle that could determine the outcome of the game. And it's not only limited to Azmi's defensive role, but also his attacking credentials. When allowed space, Azmi can be relatively dangerous down the flanks, especially with his crosses. However in this game, he has to find the right balance between attack and defence, considering that he will be dealing with Nor Farhan. The former Kelantan flanker has been terrific for the Turtles all season long, and is likely to play a central role on Sunday night. But if Azmi can maintain composure and still contribute going forward, Selangor should do well. But if Norfarhan is allowed time and space down the flanks, things could get haywire.
|Over the past few days, Rangel has been dominating headlines, with speculations regarding the possibility of him being naturalized to play for the Malaysian national team. And it's not surprising in any way, considering that Rangel has been in scintillating form this season, topping the goalscoring charts as well. He will almost certainly be the fulcrum of Selangor's attack on Sunday and Bikana will shoulder the responsibility of nullifying Rangel. The positive thing for Terengganu is that, Bikana can certainly do it, with his physique and positional ability.
