Persija Jakarta vs Persib Bandung: Klok, Da Silva, and Konate are the Most Watched

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Persija Jakarta vs Persib Bandung match will be held in the continuation of the BRI League 1 at the Captain I Wayan Dipta Stadium, Gianyar, Bali, Tuesday night, March 1 2022. Marc Klok, David Silva, and Makan Konate are the players the opponents are most wary of.

Persija Jakarta defender, Maman Abdurrahman, be wary of Persib’s two mainstay players, Marc Klok and David da Silva, in the match later. “Klok are good players. I think Klok is one of the keys to their game,” Maman said in a virtual press conference on Monday.

Klok is an almost irreplaceable midfielder at Persib. Before strengthening Persib starting in 2021, this naturalized Dutch-blooded player was a Persija player.

Marc Klok has made 22 appearances in Liga 1 this season, scoring three goals.

In addition to the 28-year-old player, Persija also paid close attention to the new Persib striker David da Silva.

David was only recruited by Maung Bandung in December 2021 and has defended Persib nine times by scoring three goals.

Two of his three goals were inscribed in Persib’s last two matches this season against PSM, on 22 February 2022, and Persela three days later.

Persija Sudirman coach realized the dangers of the Brazilian striker, but he made sure his team would not guard David.

“For us, all Persib players are a threat. Therefore, we don’t focus on just one or two players,” Sudirman said.

Persija are chasing the target of the top three of Liga 1 2021-2022 and that makes Marko Simic and his friends target a victory in all their remaining matches.

Meanwhile, Persib Bandung forward David da Silva asked his team to be wary of Persija’s creative midfielder Makan Konate.

“Eating Konate is a dangerous player. However, I hope he is not injured and can play tomorrow,” David told a press conference on Monday.

David knows Konate very well because they were together in Malaysian club, Trengganu FC.

According to the Brazilian footballer, Konate can decide the match as he did when Persija faced Persik on February 19 and Persebaya five days earlier.

Eating has made four goals from seven matches for Persija.

Even so, David ensured that his competition with Konate was limited only on the field because off the field they were close friends.

“The match against Persija is important but we have to respect each other. Konate is my friend and sometimes we still meet,” said David.

For David, tomorrow’s match will be Persib’s first match against Persija because he was only recruited by Persib in December 2021.

And this made him very enthusiastic, “It’s a big game with a big team. I’m happy to play in a match like this,” said the 32-year-old player.

Persib is trying to win the Indonesian League 1 2021-2022. In the standings, Maung Bandung is in third position with 54 points from 27 matches or only three points from standings leader Bali United. Meanwhile, Persija are in seventh place in the standings with 38 points from 26 matches.
