Successful and unsuccessful passes, ball possession rates, attempt on goal, shot on target, and goals scored were selected as Performance Indicators (P.I) in this study. Twelve matches from Malaysia Super League (MSL) season 2015 were selected. Video of 12 matches was obtained from Media Prima Sdn. Bhd., www.youtube.com and live recordings.
