Weekend Round Up

Group 1

Sriwijaya v Jakarta 2-1 25,000
Jakarta North v Padang 0-1 3,000

Kediri v Banda Aceh 2-1 15,000
Malang v Deli Serdang 1-0 15,000
Medan v Sriwijaya 0-0 18,000
Bireun v Jakarta North 1-0 8,000
Padang v Tangerang 0-0 7,000
Jakarta v Pelita Jaya 2-1 10,000

1. Medan 11 points
2. Sriwijaya 10
3. Kediri 9
4. Bandung 9

Medan remain the only unbeaten team in Group 1 after 5 games but their last two games has seen them collect just 2 points. Aliyudin impressed as Jakarta climbed up to 9th with a comfortable 3 points against Pelita Jaya. Deli Serdang lost their 100% record on the road, falling to a late penalty at Malang. Two points separate the top 6, gripping stuff eh, with Lamongan and Malang just outside the 4.

Group 2

Surabaya v Sidoarjo 0-1
Bali v Yogyakarta 3-1 5,000

Pasuruan Division v Manado 2-2 10,000
Arema Malang v Persibom 0-0 10,000
Makassar v Bali 1-0 15,000
Sidoarjo v Jepara 4-2 2,500
Yogyakarta v Solo 0-0 12,000

1. Jayapura 10 points
2. Makassar 10
3. Arema Malang 9
4. Sidoarjo 9

While Surabaya slide from disaster to disaster, they lie 14th with 3 points, teir fellow 'big clubs' are looking good with Jayapura, Makassar and Arema holding the top 3. Arema won't be happy about being held at home and the crowd of just 10,000 was less than city rivals Malang! In the battle of the tourist destinations (!) took the points to climb to 6th while in their second big game, against Solo in the Kraton Derby (!) Yogyakarta took their first point of the season. They lie rooted at the bottom with a single point and a single goal . Surprise package Sidoarjo, a suburb of Surabaya, lie 4th.

Tomorrow Kediri and Arema must fancy their chances of going top of their respective divisions. At least for 24 hours. Medan host Jakarta North and these guys don't travel too well. Also on Wednesday Makassar host Surabaya, a game I' d love to see...but can't!
