In the East Javan derby Persik defeated Arema 2-1 at neutral Sidoarjo. Life without their star imports may soon become a reality but Persik showed they can still score. Khusnul Yuli opened the scoring for the 'hosts' on 38' before Serge equalised on 68'. Substitute Susanto made sure of three points for Persik and saw them climb to 3rd spot in the ISL.
