A round up

This week sees Persik Kediri hosting Urawa Reds in the ACL. Well, when I say hosting it's being played in Solo. Victory could see them go top depending on how Sydney fare against Shanghai. It would be great to see the White Tigers go through but their negative goal difference and feeble record on the road counts against them.

Arema meanwhile go to Kawasaki Frontale but lying 6 points off the Japanese side they have no chance of going through. Well, they have a mathematical chance but really I have more chance of being seduced by Britney Spears on a gondola in Venice.

The Indonesian Cup kicks off Wednesday. A bit of a local derby I guess sees Krakatau Steel play Serang while Bandung District go to Kuningan. Persida Sidoarjo from the southern Surabaya 'burbs welcome Gresik United from the northern 'burbs. Also in East Java Jember make the short trip to coastal Banyuwangi.

One final league game sees Surabaya travel to Manokwari on Thursday. A bottom 4 clash, a point for Surabaya would see them climb out of the relegation zone but till now they have nothing from their road trips and to be fair Manokwari have a reasonable home record.

Division 2 is up and running but I lack Stephen Hawkins understanding of advanced mega maths. There are 4 groups and each group has 2 divisions. Most have 7 or 8 teams but really I can't be arsed with it. Anyway from what I can make it's all over by mid July.

In Division 1 judging by the names of the goal scorers there are plenty of foreigners plying their trade in outpost towns I'd have difficulty finding on a decent map.

6 Goals - da Silva (Sigli)
5 Goals - Peri Sah Kolle (Serang)
4 Goals - Alamsyah (Samiandra), Carlos (Palembang), de Carvalho (Batang)


Group 1

Group 2
Depok District

Group 3

Group 4
Mitra Kukar
