PSM Makassar coach, Bernardo Tavares gave a classy response after picking up a 1-0 victory over host Persebaya Surabaya in the 26th match of the BRI League 1 2022/2023 which took place at the Gelora Joko Samudro Gresik Stadium, Friday (24/2/2023) afternoon .
The Juku Eja team picked up three points with the help of an own goal from the host midfielder, M Alwi Slamat.
Although PSM’s winning goal was considered lucky, he emphasized that the opponent’s own goal could not be separated from the hard work of the players looking for gaps in the opponent’s defense.
“There weren’t many chances, only two chances against each other’s goal. Luck comes from hard work, not easy preparation amidst a busy schedule,” said Bernardo Tavares as quoted from the PT LIB website.

This result made PSM Makassar’s positive trend continue after successfully breaking the record of never winning at Persebaya Surabaya.
