Persipura v Sriwijaya 4-1

That's why they're champions. Effortlessy is a good word but you don't effortlessly destroy a team like Sriwijaya. The reigning champions did their bit by showing the world just why they fared so poorly in the Asian Champions League this season. Their midfield, where Zah rahan and Wijay are normally so imperious were just brushed aside by a rampant Black Pearls side.

Boas Solossa hit the post with a pen but Goncalves tucked away the rebound. Jeremiah finished off a sweeping move down the left and it was 2-0 at half time.

Second half Boas took advantage of some statuesque Sriwijaya defending to make it three then four nil.

Eduard Ivakdalam had his own personal tribute when he was replaced by David Da Rocha. The whole stadium stood as one to cheer him off and even the visitors queued to shake his hand.

Sriwijaya also missed a penalty, Jendri Pitoy saving a feeble Ngon A Djam effort and late substitute Budi Sudarsono did pull back a consolation but this was Persipura's day.
