Madura United really made careful preparations to win against PSM Makassar. The second week of the BRI Liga 1 2021/2022 duel will be held at the Madya Stadium, Jakarta, Sunday (12/9/2021) night.
Previously, Laskar Sape often had to settle for one point due to a 1-1 draw against Persikabo 1973 last week. In that match, Madura United first took the lead through Hugo Gomes Jaja before being equalized by Persikabo thanks to Ahmad Nufiandani.
The architect of the Madura United team, Rahmad Darmawan, has evaluated the poor results achieved by his team. He tried to correct the mistakes made by his team in order to get the three points against PSM.
“After we got one point in the first game, we continued to improve and train intensively. Some related to the weaknesses obtained in the first match became a lesson for us, “he said, Saturday (11/9/2021).
The coach, who is familiarly called RD, said that Madura United were often late in realizing their position in the game. That factor made Tira Persikabo 1973 able to reply to the opening goal they created.
This also happened when Madura United tried to open the opponent’s defense. According to him, the distance between players in each line is too far so that Madura United’s attack is far from effective.
RD stated that the error had been tried to fix. The results of the first week are very important so that the team can develop more.
“He has improved quite well in the training process the last few days. Hopefully the players are really able to translate what we have conveyed until the match, “said RD.
“If we look at the results of yesterday’s match in the first week, many are surprising. I think we have to be ready for anything in every game,” added the AFC Pro licensed coach.
This duel is predicted to be exciting. Madura United has been recorded to have met 10 times against PSM Makassar since 2016. As a result, both teams both recorded five wins without ever ending the match with a draw.
