Kelantan, who are currently second in Group B, only need a point against East Coast rivals Terengganu to guarantee their progress to the knockout round.

Leaders ATM can wrap up top spot with a win at home to Kedah, although a draw might be enough if they maintain a better goal difference over the Red Warriors.

In Group D, both Pahang and Selangor need a point to progress to the last eight in their games against T-Team and Sarawak respectively.

Pahang appear to have the easier task at hand given T-Team have only picked up one point in their five games so far, while the Red Giants will have the benefit of home advantage in their game against the Sarawak, who can still progress if they record a three-goal victory at the Shah Alam Stadium.

Over in Group A, LIONSXII face off against Johor FC at the Jalan Besar Stadium knowing a draw would be good enough to see both of them progress.

However, defeat for either side would open the door for Johor and PKNS FC, who are both three points behind the duo, to move into the top two.

Finally, Group C leaders Negri Sembilan entertain Felda United, while Perak travel to Sime Darby with the slimmest of chances of qualifying for the knockout round.
