The other Malang team
While the better known Arema Malang struggle in Group 2 in 8th spot, Malang go about their business quietly and successfully. Yesterday saw them host Pelita Jaya and the guests took the lead. Former Arema star Franco Hita scored twice to secure the points and confirm Malang in 4th spot, 4 points behind the joint leaders Medan and Sriwijaya on 16 points. Hita has now scored 7 goals and is the top scorer in the league while Arema have scored 7 all season.
