Persija v Persebaya 4-3

They're calling it Indonesia's very own Classico! But Persija go into the game low on confidence, their first choice midfield out and a shaky defence while Persebaya have been scoring goals for fun.

3' - Andi Odang makes it 1-0 Persebaya beating the offside
7' - Odang again beats the defence, yasir again makes a hash of it and Korinus makes it 2-0 before Persija have broken sweat.
13' - spectacular effort from Bambang but Persebaya keeper copes ok
17' - plenty of good possession by Persebaya
22' - Ismed sends a free kick over
26' - Mushafry replaces Ramdhani as Persija coach Benny Dollo opts for three up front
35' - classic Bambang header in 6 yard box just wide
43' - Aliyudin gets in front of a defender but his shot just over
45' - simple tap in by Bambang makes it 1-2 but touch of offside?

Persija v Persebaya 1-2

Persebaya eased up abit towards the end of the half. Is that true though? Can teams decide when they want to attack and when they want to take it easy? Given Persebaya's defence there's more goals in this game. Possibly.

59' - the Aliyudin song echos round Bung Karno as he leaps above the much taller Persebaya defence and makes it 2-2
68' - very different Persebaya now. Korinus has gone off and Danurwindo has pushed Tarkpor up top
69' - Persija's defence sleeps as
Josh Maguire slides in but just wide
72' - Tarkpor dispossess' Herman Abanda in left midfield(!) and his through ball sees Maguire in acres of space and he makes it 3-2 for Persebaya
75' - Mushafry gets down the right, pulls the ball back. Persebaya fail to fail and Bambang bundles home from about 7 and a half inches. 3-3 and Bambang's fourth of the season
78' - Ilham from 6 yards blasts but hits Takashoti in the face
79' - Persija have the ball in the net but Abanda is ruled to have fould Endra in the Persebaya goal
84' - Endra saves from Bambang free kick, debatable, Aliyudin leaps to head his second and give Persija the lead for the first time 4-3
85' - Baihakki gets a yellow


Persija v Persebaya 4-3

Forget Barcelona v Real madrid, Hartlepool United v Darlington or that Argie thing between some kids and some kitchen utensils, this Classico lived up to its billing as two of the biggest names in Indonesian football fought a crunching, nailbiting affair at the Bung Karno.

Persebaya swept in a two goal lead within seven minutes but Bambang right on half time clawed Persija back in the game.

Second half Persija had the measure of the visitors as John Tarkpor was pushed forward.
opening the midfield that had so dominated the first 45'.

Aliyudin made it 2-2 before a horrendous blunder by Herman Abanda out on the left touch line, what the bloody hell was he doing there, saw a grateful Magure run onto Tarkpor's through ball and give the Surabaya side the advantage again.

But it never lasted. In a mirror image of Persebaya's game against Persiwa recently where they came from 4-2 down, Persija made got back in the game and then, with Aliyudin, stole the points. Points they were unlikely to see first half in what had been a poor showing by the home side.

For Persebaya they are, scant consololation it maybe for coach Danurwindo, the great entertainers in the ISL. Their results this season read like a rain delayed tennis tournament with 5-2, 5-4, 2-2, 1-4 and now 3-4.

And regular readers may well have guessed by now...I wasn't at the game!
