The Southern Tigers were made to work hard in the first half as the away side were defensively resolute. JDT broke the Golden Deers' resistance when Argentinian striker Fernando Forestieri scored in the 45th minute.

In the second-half, JDT coach Hector Bidoglio made some changes and his substitutes starred.

JDT will take on Malaysian University in the two-legged quarter-finals.

In Kota Kinabalu, Sabah showed no mercy for A1 Semi-Pro League side KL Rovers by thrashing them 7-0 at the Likas Stadium.

Striker Ramon Machado fired a hattrick in the 28th, 45th and 59th minutes, while the other goals were delivered by winger Saddil Ramdani (17th), centreback Park Tae-su (51st), winger Jafri Firdaus Chew (73rd) and own goal from Raffi Nagoorgani.
