Lifting Mentality, Persebaya Captain Invites Teammates to Evaluate After Being Beaten by Dewa United in BRI Liga 1

Lifting Mentality, Persebaya Captain Invites Teammates to Evaluate After Being Beaten by Dewa United in BRI Liga 1

he captain of Persebaya Surabaya , Reva Adi Utama, immediately took action after his team was badly beaten by Dewa United. He will gather his colleagues to lift the team’s mentality.

Persebaya Surabaya  suffered a humiliating defeat with a score of 0-3 when they hosted Dewa United at the Gelora Bung Tomo Stadium, Surabaya, Tuesday (16/4/2024) afternoon.

“After this I will gather all the players, I will talk to them. “This is not the time to appoint one or two people, this is wrong and that is wrong,” said Reva.

This is Persebaya Surabaya’s biggest defeat at home since the League 1 era. Previously, they lost 0-2 when they hosted PS Tira, now Persikabo 1973, at the GBT Stadium too, on 11 September 2018.

The Attack Line Still Has Problems

What’s worse, Persebaya Surabaya is still having difficulty adding to its goal account. Dewa United’s three-goal unanswered defeat further highlighted the fact that Bajul Ijo is a team with a bad front line.

The Bajul Ijo team played very badly and were unable to provide significant resistance to pose a threat. Now, their problem is compounded by a defense sector that is easy to break into.

Plus, two of Dewa United’s three goals were scored by former Persebaya players. They are Ricky Kambuaya (40′), Ahmad Nufiandani (69′), and Alex Martins (72′).

“We have to work together to save Persebaya from remaining in League 1, we have to work together to get up, because if we can’t get up mentally, I think we have to stop playing football if there are players like that,” said Reva.

Playing Badly

Persebaya Surabaya played very badly in this match. Organizationally the game doesn’t look good. In fact, the Bajul Ijo team trained more and only had two days off during Eid al-Fitr.

The match against Dewa United should have made Persebaya appear better, but what happened was the opposite.

Overall, Dewa United has shown how to play aggressively and outwit Persebaya. This was proven by the home team not moving, and often even making their own mistakes.

Next facing Persib

Next, Persebaya Surabaya will play a tough away match entering its 32nd week. They will visit the headquarters of top team Persib Bandung, Saturday (20/4/2024). 

“So I will emphasize to the players, we have to fight together until the last match. “As a player, I want to forget this defeat, later the coach will carry out an evaluation, we will prepare mentally to face Persib in Bandung,” said Reva.

Persebaya is now in 11th position in the standings with 39 points. They are still not safe from the threat of relegation.

Because Arema FC, which is in 16th or top position in the red zone, has collected 31 points. This means there is a difference of eight points. Arema still has the potential to outperform with three matches remaining.
