Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) are close to creating history as the first team from Malaysia to play at the Asia Champions League. The Southern Tigers last night beat Bengaluru FC 2-1, but needed extra time to secure the win.
Bengaluru played hard and managed to contain the mighty JDT until the 47th minute, but there was no stopping Hariss Harun from heading in a corner crossed in by Safiq Rahim.
As the match looked to be owned by JDT, Sunil Chhetri equalized for the visiting team, hence stretching the game into extra time.
Nonetheless, super-sub S Chanturu made sure JDT would play Bangkok Glass FC in the second round of the qualification round when he made no mistake to slot home the winner for JDT to ensure their trip to Thailand this 10 February.
