Persik Kediri v Urawa Reds 3-3

Persik don't do defence!

With striking options that include Gonzalez and Sardosono being prompted by the midfield guile of Fagundez and Danilo the White Tigers just aren't equipped for holding a lead. They will always seek to extend it. With Erol Iba bombing down the wing you always fancy Kediri to score.

Today they did themselves proud against the highly fancied Japanese in a ding dong affair in Solo that leaves both teams with a point they would rather not have.

The vistors took the lead. Kediri equalised. Kediri took the league. Urawa equalised. Urawa took the lead. Kediri equalised. Both teams will feel they lost two points, both teams will be relieved they didn't lose. And people watching the game will wonder what all the fuss is about Manchester United cancelling their Malaysian game. This game pissed all over the recent Champions League semi final between Liverpool and Chelsea and while purists (whoever or whatever they maybe) fret over defensive errors it was end to end stuff played in front of a vocal crowd on a bumpy pitch and it was great fun.
