Copa Indonesia Big 16

While the great and good of the AFC pack their toothbrushes and return home we have the Liga Indonesia kicking off again on Saturday.

The draw has also been made for the Big 16 of the Copa Indoneisa and there are a couple of crackers. Teams in italics are from the First Division.

PSAP Sigli vs Persekabpas Pasuruan
Persija Jakarta vs PSM Makassar
Perseman Manokwari vs Sriwijaya FC
Persipura Jayapura vs Persemalra Tual
Persijap Jepara vs Pelita Jaya Purwakarta
Persis Solo vs Persita Tangerang
PSMS Medan vs Gresik United
PKT Bontang vs Deltras Sidoarjo

The tie of the round is undoubtedly Persija against PSM Makassar while the old cup romantic in me likes the look of Persipura against Tual who are from somewhere in Maluku. Silgli is between Banda Aceh and Medan so they have a lengthy journey to East Java to play Pasuruan while Gresik United is a virtual suburb of Surabaya and you can bet the local police were happy they avoided playing neighbours Sidoarjo. Sriwijaya from the Sumatran city of Palembang have the longest trip when they go to Manokwari so let's hope they take plenty of Sudoku for their flight with interminable connections.

No idea when these games are scheduled for!
