Crazybola.com – Persib Bandung’s new signing Marc Klok took up to 86 minutes to score for his new club in the new Indonesian Liga 1 season, Saturday night (4/9), after an attack in the first half only hit the crossbar.
The former Persija Jakarta and PSM Makassar player signed a four-year contract with the Indonesian Liga 1 giants in June 2021 and he immediately proved his worth in the team’s first game.
The Persib Bandung vs Barito Putera match ended with a score of 1-0 with Maung Bandung dominating the match at the Indomilk Sport Center Stadium, Tangerang, in terms of attempted goals and shots on target.
Robert Alberts’ boys were more aggressive with 55 per cent of possession and five goal chances during the first half, recording three shots on target towards Muhammad Riyandi’s goal. Compare that to the visitors who had two goal chances and one attack on target.
Djadjang Nurdjaman’s men changed tactics by trying to control the ball more often during the second 45 minutes. Domination over the round to 61 percent killed Maung Bandung’s game and both teams failed to register a single goal opportunity.
That was before the blues registered two counter-attacks in stoppage time with Marc Klok managing to capitalize on one of them to score for Persib Bandung. Actually, the 28-year-old naturalized player who was born in Amsterdam could have ended the match sooner if the free kick in the first half of the match had penetrated Riyandi’s goal.
This is the second consecutive win from Persib Bandung over Bakantan Hamuk after winning 2-1 in a friendly in February 2020. Of the five most recent matches, only one victory was recorded by the blue team, with three draws and one advantage for Barito.
