The Southern Tigers have never beaten the Red Giants since 2009 and they are looking for revenge after lost 4-1 when the two last met.For the first time ever, Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) are set to meet Selangor in the FA Cup.
For the past nine years, the two teams have met only in Super League or Malaysia Cup matches, with the latest example being last month, where 10-man Selangor beat JDT 4-1 at Shah Alam in a Super League match.
Historically, both Selangor and JDT have met in competitive matches 21 times, with Selangor having 12 wins and only four losses while JDT have managed only four victories over the Red Giants since 2008.
The Red Giants are currently enjoying a good run against JDT, being unbeaten against them in 11 matches since their last defeat in 2009. This run consists of nine 9 wins and two draws against the Southern Tigers, and they have also won four in a row against them prior to this match.
JDT be out for revenge, and also to end this poor run against Selangor, the closest they ever got to win against Selangor was in 2012, where they lead Selangor at half time 1-0, only to draw the match after the full 90 minutes. JDT will also look to erase their memory of a heavy defeat against Selangor last month.
