Kedah kept their hopes alive of reaching the quarter-final of the Malaysia Cup when they defeated Sabah 1-0 at the Darulaman Stadium, helped by a goal from Mohd Khyril Muhymeen in the 44th minute. This result tied both teams on second place in group A with 7 points each. Perak meanwhile defeated Johor 2-1 to book their place in the knockout stages.
The last game of the group will see Johor hosting Sabah while Kedah will host Perak. Eventhough Sabah will meet a demoralised Johor away, Kedah can get a win over Perak who is now already qualified. These games will be played tomorrow night.
