Arema v Sriwijaya 0-2

The Arema players wanted Miroslav Janu, their Czech coach, out. They got their wish. Now at the vital Play Off stage their dream of Liga glory is falling apart amid petulance and ill discipline.

Sriwijaya brushed aside a poor Arema side at the Delta Stadium, Sidoarjo in their relentless march to an unprecedented domestic double and this must rank as one of their easier performances.

Second half goals from Lenglolo and Charis were enough to decide this messy game littered with free kicks.

With Arema fans banned some 8,000 'Wong Malang', or Malang people, made the short journey to support their team without wearing colours. If only their team had shown the same dedication or passion they might have got a result

The Sumatran side have four points from two games and on Saturday they play Persiwa. Arema meanwhile have one point from their two games and need something special against PSMS to reach the Liga semi finals.
