Indonesia Super League

Persipura v Barito Putra 4-1 (Otavio Dutra 2, Bio Paulin, Lukas Mandowen; Coulibray) 23,133

A busy ISL weekend not short on upsets. What is no surprise is Persipura comfortably overcoming Barito Putra with the aid of a couple of pens by Dutra. The Black Pearls go top for the first time this season. Mitra Kukar could have gone top had they won on Madura but it was not to be as newly promoted Persepam, coached by the irrepressible Daniel Roekito, thumped them to continue their unbeaten home record.

The big game no doubt was at Jalak Harupat as Persib overcame Persija 3-1 with new signing Van Dijk continuing his fine start to life in Indonesia netting a brace. Persija, to add to their woes, had Fabiano sent off for a second red card, the challenge reckless rather than malicious and the back slapping that accompanied him off the field possibly helped keep the crowd calm.

2 - Arema 10 7 0 3 24-11 21

Indonesia Premier League

Semen Padang v Persiba 2-1
Persema v Bontang 4-1
PSIR v Persebaya 0-0 12,500
Pro Duta v Arema 2-0
PSLS v Persija 3-3
Persiraja v Persijap 1-0
Persibo v PSM 2-0
Persepar v Perseman 0-2

Wow! A full set of fixtures in the IPL. Arema finally managed to play their first game of the season but lost. They had previously uniliaterally pulled out of their first two games claiming they weren't ready though an off field dispute did contribute to this. as ever! They forfeited their last game, away to Semen Padang, 3-0. Persema began a new era with new colours, new badge and a new nickname. Life without Irfan began well but it was Bontang they were playing and even at this stage they will evaluate their coach after losing their opening games conceding nine in the process.

Persebaya's notorious Bonek following made the shortish journey along the north coast of Java in their 000's, anywhere between 3 and 4,000, with some camping outside Rembang's 10,000 capacity stadium overnight.

Wins for Semen Padang and Perseman mean they currently share top spot.

minor correction:
there's no more 'Persija' in the IPL.. it's 'Jakarta FC'
