Week 9 - Home Advantage Helps Bali United Climb To Second

Persela v Sriwijaya 2-1 (Samsul Arif, Aang Suparman; Alberto Goncalves) 7,968

After a slow start to the season Persela are most definitely up and running under coach Herry Kiswanto. They came from behind to beat an inconsistent Sriwijaya side making it one loss in their last six games. What Sriwijaya coach Osvaldo Lessa would give for that kind of consistency.

Madura United v Gresik United 3-2 (Boubacar Sanogo, Fandi Utomo, Bayu Gatra; Arsyad Yusgiantoro 2) 6,326

Madura United were without Peter Odemwingie for this game but no worries. Not when they can call on Sanogo to start and score.

Mitra Kukar v PS TNI 5-3 (Mohamed Sissoko 2, In Kyun Oh, Jose Gotor, Anindito Erminarno; Elio Martins 2, Facindo Talin) 1,544

Some thoughts on the Comeback Kings!

Persija v Arema 2-0 (Bruno Lopes, Rohit Chand) 28,967

Amid all the joy among Persija fans after only their second win of the campaign where next for Arema. They started the season with a series of narrow wins but they have struggled for goals all season and this defeat saw their unhappy run now extend to a sorry four points in their last five games.

Persiba v Borneo 3-2 (Masahito Noto, Marlon da Silva, Bijahil Chalwa; Terens Puhiri, Lerby Eliandry) 5,120

Persiba's first four home games were played in Malang. They lost all three and weren't able to score a single goal in 360 barren minutes. They return to their home city of Balikpapan and lo and behold, they not only score goals...they win with a 92nd minute effort from substitute Chalwa.

Barito Putera v Semen Padang 3-1 (Ambrizal, Rizky Ripora, Matheus Cordoba; Vendry Mofu) 5,370

PSM v Persipura 5-1 (Reinaldo Elias 2, Marc Klok 2, Wiljam Pluim; Addison Alves) 14,850

Perseru v Bali United 1-3 (Silvo Escabar; Sylvano Comavalius 2, Irfan Bachdim) 8,531

Ostensibly a Perseru home game, this was switched to Bali because the Papuan side didn't have any decent floodlights for an evening kick off. Bali took full advantage of a second straight home game, moving up to second in the Liga 1 standings!

Bhayangkara v Persib 2-0 (Paulo Sergio, Ilham Armaiyn) 10,500

Where to begin? Four games without a win for Persib...
