Jakarta v Makassar

At its heart, football is a simple game. There are 2 basic skills that need to be mastered, the ability to control and pass the round ball. From this comes the best bit, putting the ball in the back of the net. Combine this with a tight defence and you're on to a winner. The inability to score will not win you many honours.

Regular readers of this site will recall Jakarta's reluctance to score very often. A series of 1-0's got them into the Big 8. Unable to kill off Pasuruan Town on Monday the Jak's defence failed to live up to their side of the bargain. One goal was scored, three were conceded, it was not part of the script.

So against Makassar the defence were back to their waterproof best. This time the forwards let them down. 0-0 was not the result they wanted, not by a long chalk.

Pasuruan Town 4 points
Minhasa 2 points
Makassar 2 points
Jakarta 1 point

Jakarta just have to beat Minhasa in their final game and hope Makassar get nothing against Pasaruan. It's that simple.
