PETALING JAYA, Aug 8 – Two goals in three minutes by Brazilian ace Bergson da Silva in the first half for a 2-0 win over Sabah FC and there is no stopping Johor Darul Takzim (JDT) in their bid to win the Malaysian Super League title for the eighth successive time.
The Southern Tigers with 45 points from 18 matches is a clear “Catch Me If You Can” message to their rivals with Terengganu FC second on 37 points from the same number of matches.

He completed his brace two minutes later -this time beating Sabah custodian Rozaimie Rohimi from a long ball by Leandro Velazquez. The Southern Tigers could have added to their tally but muffed the opportunities that they created.
