Bola.com, Makassar – Coach PSM Makassar Robert Alberts revealed that he would prepare a special strategy to defeat Persebaya Surabaya in the 30th week of Gojek League 1 with Bukalapak on Saturday (10/11/2018).
According to Robert, the PSM needed three points to ensure the pursuit of two competitors, Persib Bandung and Persija Jakarta. "We lead the way, but with the five remaining parts, all possibilities come true," said Robert after the PSM training routine at the Mattoangin Andi Mattalatta stadium on Tuesday (11/06/2018).
Facing Persebaya, Robert said he was quite confused by the absence of several players. Especially in midfield. Where three players, Asnawi Mangkualam, Marc Klok and Rizki Pellu were subjected to non-corresponding sanctions.
PSM was not reinforced by Alessandro Ferreira Leonardo, who was called by the Hong Kong team. His absence clearly influences the balance of the team.
"I'm looking for a midfield formula. We need solid material to beat Persebaya," Robert said.
That's why Robert felt the need to conduct closed training on Wednesday (07/07/2018). "The appearance of Persebaya is more promising," said Robert. "The absence of striker David da Silva does not affect his productivity.
In Robert's eyes, Persebaya's PSM duel would be attractive. Both teams are listed as the most productive team until the 29th week. At the moment, Persebaya scored 50 goals, while PSM scored 46 goals.
"What should be noted, PSM so the second team is productive, but none of the players are among the top 5 temporary scorers. That means all players have a chance to score, "concluded Robert.
