  • 55'
    Selangor start the second half strongly as they look to come back against the LionsXII.
  • 51'
    Safuwan tackles Juninho dangerously in the penalty box but no complaints from the latter. The defender got the ball but it could have so easily been a penalty had he been even the least bit off in his timing.
  • 46'
    And the second half commences!
  • Selangor faded after a decent start and the LionsXII grew stronger as the half wore on, and Mehmet Durakovic will hope his team respond well in the second period.
  • So, the LionsXII are ahead through an excellent header by Shakir three minutes before half-time. The goal was a little against the run of play, but Fandi and his boys won't care less.
  • What an exciting end to the first half it was! Stay tune for more after we return from the break!

  • 44'
    Goal Shakir Hamzah
    GOAL!! The Lions go in front after Shakir nods in Zulfahmi Arifin's corner! Farizal is partly to blame for the goal as it was he who tried to come out and intercept the ball but failed to do so and thus allowing Shakir to get to the ball!
  • 42'
    Best chance of the game for the LionsXII! Hafiz Sujad found enough space in the box to curl in a shot but the midfielder's shot unluckily clipped the bar!
  • 40'

  • 31'
    First shot on goal of the match by Amri from 25 yards out but that is easy for Farizal to catch.
  • 28'
    Yellow Card K. Gurusamy
    The midfielder earns a yellow for clattering into Shakir even though the ball was nowhere near him.
  • 26'
    Both teams have been trying to break down each others in the last 10 minutes but so far that's been proving difficult to achieve.
  • 16'
    Selangor are looking dangerous on the break as they demonstrate once again, forcing Shakir into a risky clearance in the penalty box.
  • 13'
    Good chance for LionsXII! Amri swings in a low cross which beats the entire Selangor backline but the onrushing Sufian could not get there in time and the ball goes into Farizal's arms!
