Tampines Kick Off SLeague With Win

Indonesia Super League


Persisam v Persepam 2-2 (Pavel Solomin, Radiansyah; Silvio Escabar, Ishak Djober) 13,289
PSM v Persiba 4-0 (Michael Baird 2, Andi Oddang, Rasyid Bakkri) 500

Always the way, innit, sack the coach and start winning...a comfortable day at the office for PSM though you can't help thinking they would have got a similar result under Jorg Steinbrunner


Persipura v Persiba Balikpapan 1-0 (Ian Louis Kabes) 5,158

The champions remained unbeaten but needed an injury time penalty to overcome plucky Persiba who traditionally have had a pretty decent record in Jayapura. It was Persipura's second win in five games, a slow start by their standards but they ain't losing.

Mitra Kukar v Persela 5-1 (Herman Dzumafo 3, Anindito, Zulham Zamrun; Addison Alves) 3,106

While Persipura have been struggling to find their groove, Mitra Kukar have had no difficulty finding theirs. New signing Dzumafo settled in quickly with a hat trick as they moved top of the eastern conference.


Arema v Barito Putera 2-0 (Ahmad Bustomi, Samsul Arif) 19,500

Arema kept their unbeaten start to the season going with a comfortable win over Barito Putera who have really yet to get started this season and having Herman Abanda red carded after 12 minutes was definitely not part of the pre match plan.. An amazing game at the Kanjuruhan...neither Gonzales nor Goncalves scored!

Pelita Bandung Raya v Semen Padang 1-1 (Gaston Castano; Hendra Bayaw) 500

Injury time penalties for the home team seem to be in vogue this week in Indonesia as PBR came from behind to salvage a point and preserve their good start to the season. And while Semen Padang may bemoan the the decision that led to the spot kick, they will look back on four points from two games in West Java, they beat Persib 2-1, as a job well done.

Western Conference

1. Arema 5 5 0 0 14-1 15
2. Pelita Bandung Raya 6 3 2 1 9-6 11
3. Persib 5 3 1 1 8-4 10     

Eastern Conference

1. Mitra Kukar 5 3 1 1 9-3 10
2. Persipura 5 2 3 0 8-4 9
3. Putra Samarinda 5 1 3 1 10-6 6

 5 - Cristian Gonzales (Arema), Ilija Spasojevic (Putra Samarinda)


Tampines Rovers v Home United 1-0 (Miljan Mrdakovic)

The SLeague champions began the new campaign with a narrow win over Home United last night at Jalan Besar  Stadium. Mrdakovic netted for the Stags a couple of minutes in to the second half. The night ended grimly for Home with Qiu Li sent off before the end. Obviously. I mean, he cant get sent off after the end, can he? Well, he can but you know what I mean.

According to my maths, Tampines are top of the table, unbeaten, they have scored in every game this season and have yet to concede a goal. Championship form indeed!
