Persija Jakarta v PSIS Semarang 2-2

This crucial game saw its kick off delayed by some 20 minutes because of crowd congestion outside the the stadium but when it got under way PSIS started brightly with Julio Lopez instrumental.

Indeed JLo as he is known played a vital role when PSIS took the lead, passing on a give and go and allowing Abdurahman to finish neatly. A well worked goal, it sent the travelling fans into blue heaven.

Robertinho equalised on the half hour mark, a free header from a corner beating the defender on the near post. It was the Argentinian's first goal since arriving at the club during the mid season break

1-1 half time with hundreds of fans locked outside

Two minutes into the second half and Bambang scores a sumptious second for Persija. Aliyudin played the ball square and BP allowed the ball to run across the front of him, wrongfooting the hapless PSIS defender, finishing well from 18 yards. Bambang's 12th of the season. A minute later and Ilham was through but stumbled at the last moment. PSIS are looking ragged early second half.

PSIS did fight their way back into the game and on 78 minutes equalised when someone broke the offside trap and beat the keeper with a low drive across him, nestling in the far corner.

2-2 final score
