SHORT notice on this one but we couldn't afford to let the price get smashed in and not see this game making the light of day.
PERSIBO BONJONEGORO v PERSEPAR PALANGKARAYA, 9.30am, Bet365
Persibo are a side we've been keeping a close eye on of late, though there's not really been much action to see from them. This is a club in a bit of turmoil. They played in the AFC Cup recently and conceded 34 goals in 6 games, which is really what put them under the spotlight.
Last week Persibo played their first league game since the 7th of March and were beaten 5-1 away to Persebaya in a match that saw them have to play their substitute goalkeeper as a striker for 45 minutes as they are currently struggling for players. Today looks to be no different as they are struggling to register any new players in time for this match.
Their opponents Persepar have had their own short-term troubles, but have won their last three matches and travel to take on Persibo with a squad of 19 players including their Brazilian and South Korean strike partnership.
Persepar should win this with ease against a side that has hardly trained and who can't even fill a bench at the minute. This is Indonesian football though so we're not going to get too hopeful of a huge scoreline but with Bet365 astonishingly pricing both sides at 7/5 as this is written, there will be value to be had in this game with possibly half-time goals, asian handicaps & HT/FT markets. We are still living in hope of Team Goals and a goals spread just in case this goes big but it is highly unlikely to see this. We're also keeping an eye out for any other bookies playing ball with this game and will try and keep you updated as best we can.
GOOD MORNING & GOOD LUCK TODAY… BP
