Prediction of Persita Tangerang vs Persebaya Surabaya in BRI League 1 Tonight

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – The Persita Tangerang vs Persebaya Surabaya meeting will take place on week 29 of the BRI Liga 1 at the Captain I Wayan Dipta Stadium, Gianyar, Bali, Sunday, March 6 2022, starting at 18.15 WIB.

Persita, previously beaten by Persebaya 4-0 in the first round, has ambitions to avenge the defeat in tonight’s match. Coach Widodo Cahyono Putro said he did not want to be humiliated again by the team nicknamed Bajul ijo.

“Indeed, in the first leg we lost. But in the second leg we don’t want to repeat it like in the first round,” Widodo said, quoted from the club website.

Persita’s confidence increased after the previous match was able to hold Madura United and Bhayangkara FC to a draw, after defeating PSM Makassar. Currently they are in tenth place with 35 points from 28 matches.

Widodo has also prepared tactics to anticipate Persebaya’s attacks, most of which start from the flank. According to him, the Surabaya team winger is one of the best in the 2021-2022 league.

“Of course Persebaya is one of the most consistent teams as well and one of the flanks the best in my opinion in Liga 1,” said the former Indonesian national team player.

“So we’ve spoken with the players to anticipate that. How do we stay alert, focus on the Persebaya players who come in in our defense third, especially maybe from the side flanks,‘ he added.

Meanwhile, Persebaya, who is now ranked fifth, is eyeing three points against Persita in order to maintain the chance of winning this season’s title in the midst of fierce competition with four other top teams, Bali United, Persib Bandung, Arema FC and Bhayangkara FC.

Persebaya can field their best team to face Persita. Ricky Kambuaya, who had suffered an injury, has returned to the team.

Although the previous meeting was a landslide victory from Persita, Persebaya coach, Aji Santoso did not want to see the result as a reference. He emphasized that Widodo’s current squad is much different from before.

According to Aji Santoso, the Cisadane Warriors team has an advantage in terms of collective play. For that, Persebaya will not take Persita lightly.

“They must have made improvements, so against Persita it is not an easy match. They have strength on the collectivity side,” he said.

“I also emphasize to the players, in this fifth series not to slip. We have to focus and fight for the three points.”

“If tomorrow (against Persita can win) the chance of winning is still wide open. The key is that the children must fight,” he added.
