Persija Jakarta still has not been able to get the first three points in Liga 1 this season. In the match against PSIS Semarang at the Indomilk Arena, Banten, Persija were held to a draw by PSIS with a score of 2-2. In fact, they had led the game 2-1 until the 88th minute.
Unfortunately for Persija, the advantage that was desperately defended was even dispersed due to their own mistakes. Intending to sweep the ball from the penalty box, Rohit Chand instead struck the ball into his own net.
Persija’s carelessness and mistakes that resulted in them dropping three points frustrated coach Angelo Alessio. According to him, the Kemayoran Tigers have a great opportunity to secure three points from the match.
“I am very disappointed with this result because PSIS Semarang can score goals from the same free-kick scheme. I do not want to comment on the referee because mistakes are common in matches,” said Alessio as quoted by Goal.
“We have controlled the match but once again I am disappointed because the goal from PSIS Semarang should not have happened. I am sure after this match the players will get up and work again. Later I will evaluate,” he said.
