TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Persija Jakarta vs Persib Bandung duel will take place in the 28th week of BRI Liga 1 at the Captain I Wayan Dipta Stadium, Gianyar, Bali, Tuesday, March 1, 2022. The match between the two teams, which is full of rivalries, is scheduled to start at 20.30 WIB with Indosiar broadcast.
In this match, Persija will again be accompanied by their head coach, Sudirman, who previously missed the last four matches due to his declining health condition after being exposed to Covid-19.
Brazil striker, David da Silva, who joined Persib in the second half of this season, is currently improving his form. After having struggled to score at the start of the second round, the 32-year-old began to become a threat from the Blue Prince’s front line.
If initially only able to score one goal from the initial seven matches with Persib, Da Silva managed to score two goals in the last two matches.
Although Da Silva is dangerous, Sudirman emphasized that his team will not only keep an eye on the Brazilian striker because they have a line of players who have the potential to pose a threat to his team’s defense.
That’s the reason why Persija doesn’t want to focus on just one player. According to Sudirman, every Persib player could punish Persija if he was careless and lost focus.
“Of course we have seen how they play. In my opinion, it is not only David da Silva who has to be wary of,” said Sudirman, Monday, February 28, 2022.
“We have to be aware of all Persib Bandung players. Eleven Persib players on the field are a threat to us,” he said.
Ahead of the match, Sudirman ensured that his team would remain aware of any potential threats that were ready to be given by 11 opposing players on the field. He also Maman Abdurahman and his friends kept their focus on anticipating all the Blue Prince players.
“I always tell the players that the 11 opposing players are a threat to us. So, we will not only focus on one player,” said the Persija Jakarta coach.
