Every team's supporters now eager to watch their team in action starting on 20 August 2013. Especially Kelantanese because they have to defend what they won last year. It is quite tough this year since a lot of teams has recruit best player to conquer Malaysia Cup.
Johor Darul Takzim seems like to be chosen team to win the cup as well as Lions XII. Both teams have conquered Super League this season with first and second place.
Group of death this year is the title given to a group consisting of 4 former Malaysia Cup champions including 3 teams from the East Coast. Kelantan defending champions have won this tournament last year and in 2010. Terengganu won it in 2001, Pahang in 1983 and 1992 while Negeri Sembilan also was champion three times (1948, 2009, 2011).
I bet all matches in Malaysia cup this year will entertain us with full of actions, dramas and of course a lot of goals. For me, Kelantan will keep the cup in Kota Bharu for the next year.
