TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Bhayangkara FC had to settle for closing the fourth series with a 2-2 draw against Persita Tangerang in week 28 of BRI Liga 1 2021/2022 at the Captain I Wayan Dipta Stadium on Tuesday, 1 March 2022. The draw made coach Paul Munster reluctant talked about his team’s chances of winning League 1 this season.
The club nicknamed The Guardian was actually able to outperform Persita until the middle of the second half. The loss of focus of the players allowed Persita to break into Bhayangkara FC’s goal and make the match end in a draw.
Paul Munster said the opposing goal should not have happened if the players did not lose focus. However, the former Vanuatu national team coach does not want to blame each other. “Supposedly, the goal didn’t happen. It was because he lost focus and became a goal for the opponent. However, we still can’t blame each other,” said Paul Munster.
Regarding the chances of winning League 1 this season, Paul is reluctant to talk much. He prefers to focus on the next game. “I told the players not to blame each other, let’s focus on the next game,” he said.
He just wanted Evan Dimas Damono and his friends to try to get maximum points in the remaining six matches. He also does not want the team to be burdened with the target of winning this season. “I don’t want to talk too much. I want to focus on the next game to see who the available players are,” said Paul.
Looking at the remaining BRI Liga 1 matches this season, Bhayangkara FC’s chance to become the champion is actually wide open. They are in fourth position in the current Liga 1 standings by collecting 55 points or five points at odds with the top standings, Bali United. Read more.
Paul Munster should breathe a sigh of relief. The reason is that Bhayangkara does not need to face the top four teams of Liga 1 in the remaining six matches, namely Bali United, Persib Bandung, Arema FC, and Persebaya Surabaya. “We have to be ready for the next game with the target of getting the maximum results,” said Paul.
Most of Bhayangkara FC’s opponents are clubs that are currently in the middle of the table. To become League 1 champions, The Guardian must wipe out all matches with a win while expecting the other four teams in the top flight to stumble.
The following is Bhayangkara FC’s schedule for the remaining six matches of BRI Liga 1.
