Persiba A Win Away From President Cup Big 8

Tomorrow sees the President Cup action switch to Jakarta. Nope, not for any games, Persija fell out of the competition with barely a whimper but the draw will take place in the capital city which is nice.

Seven teams are already through to the next round, known as Besar 8 or Big 8;

Bali United Pusam *
PSM Makassar *
Arema *
Persib *
Mitra Kukar

* denotes hosts in the group stage and yep they all qualified top of their respective groups.

Today is the final action of the group stage with games being held at Si Jalak Harupat Stadium in Soreang, near Bandung. First up Persebaya United take on Persiba Balikpapan before Persib host Martapura in the evening kick off. A win would guarantee the Honeybears a ticket in the next round and to be fair even a draw should be enough. Can we see Martapura defeating the ISL champions later? It can happen of course...

Persiba v Persebaya United 1-4. Persebaya United reach the next stage of the competition.

Ties will be played on a home and away basis on 19/20 September and 26/27 September.
