Sabah form and stats

With 2 Premier League wins, 0 draws and 5 defeats from their home games, Sabah, who have the fewest clean sheets (2) in Premier League, are certainly not brimming with confidence. Sabah are very eager to stop a potential losing streak at Bank Respublika Arena, having lost their two previous games here.

Sabah lost their last game at Sebail (placed 6th) after a 0-2 scoreline. Preceding that game was the away draw at Zira that finished 2-2.

Sabah are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 7 goals in 7 games. 10 goals have been conceded.
