Entering the second half, Persikab Bandung Regency, which was left behind, tried to get up and increase the intensity of the attack.
As a result, for almost the entire second half, the match was dominated by Persikab Bandung Regency attacks. However, Bekasi FC’s strong back line was difficult for the visiting team to penetrate.
Bekasi FC seemed to only rely on counter attacks throughout the second half. This condition occurred because the Bandung Regency Persikab launched continuous attacks.
However, until the referee blew the long whistle to signal the end of the match, Persikab Bandung Regency was unable to respond. Bekasi FC secured victory with a score of 1-0.
Bandung Regency Persikab coach I Putu Gede said that Ezechiel’s goal was quite surprising because it occurred in the final minutes of the first half.
