PETALING JAYA: Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) won their 10th consecutive Super League title in style after thumping Police 4-0 at the Sultan Ibrahim Stadium in Seri Iskandar on Wednesday (Sept 27).

Brazilian striker Bergson, who started the match as the captain, opened the scoring in the 37th minute while Junis Muniz slotted in the second goal three minutes later.

Arif Aiman Hanapi added JDT’s advantage as he scored a 54th-minute penalty while Fernando Forestieri, coming in for Bergson in the 55th minute, scored two minutes later to complete a glorious night for the Southern Tigers.

JDT’s dominance in the league started in 2014 and their latest victory was secured with four matches to spare.

It was their 21st win in 22 Super League games this season where they have earned a mammoth 64 points to leave second-placed Selangor trailing by 15 points.
