According to the Harian Metro, the husband had initially promised his wife to be home by around 7pm after the match, but he only came back at 2am.
As soon as the man entered the house, the 20 something couple began arguing.
And as the argument heated up, the wife believably stabbed her husband in the chest with a vegetable knife, as she could no longer control her temper.
However, she panicked on seeing her husband covered in blood, and quickly sent him to the hospital.
Police have detained the wife and seized the weapon, and Ampang OCPD Asst Comm Abd Jalil Hassan said that the 26-year-old self-employed victim was currently in critical condition.
"The woman claims she was provoked by her husband coming home late," the Star Online quoted him as saying.
