Better stay home, Persija

Persija are probably having breakfast at their hotel in Balikpapan as I type this. They have been better off staying at home and saving some money.

Just take a look at Persiba's recent home record (source - Bola Tabloid)

v Persik 1-0
v Persijap 1-0
v Persita 3-0
v Pelita Jaya 2-0
v PSIS 5-0
v Persib 2-0
v Sriwijaya 4-0
v PSPS 3-0

Rather pisses on my theory that Daniel Roekito's team don't do defence, dunnit?

Persija will also be feeling the effects of having had six players away on international duty including Mustafic Fahruddin and Baihakki Kaizan who only flew back from Bangkok yesterday after Singapore duty only to be whisked straight off to Balikpapan.

Persiba, meanwhile, will have been fully rested and go into the game knowing victory could put them top of the ISL at least temporarily.

A small note of interest. This will be Persiba's 8th game of the 34 game season while Persija's 3rd! And Persija, up against their former team mate Robertinho, have yet to play at home this season.
