President’s Cup News: Having won 2-0 in the first leg of the 2022 Presidential Cup semifinal, Arema FC wing-back Rizky Dwi Febrianto believes that his team still needs a win in the semifinal second leg match against PSIS Semarang which will take place at the Kanjuruhan Stadium, Malang, Monday (11/7) afternoon at 15.30 WIB.
According to him, the victory in the first leg does not necessarily guarantee that his team has been confirmed to be stable in the top party. They still have the second 90 minutes to go and concentration is mandatory for all players.
The strength of PSIS Semarang in this pre-season tournament cannot be underestimated. In the first leg, even though they had to lose at home, the team nicknamed Laskar Mahesa Jenar was actually able to appear dominant and created a number of dangerous opportunities in front of Arema FC’s goal, fortunately Adilson Maringa appeared mighty under the bar.
Seeing this condition, Rizky Dwi did not want to only target a draw in the second match because it would be very risky for his team when he again allowed PSIS Semarang to appear dominant.
“We know in the first leg we have got an extraordinary result. But of course it is not enough for us because there is still a second game at home,” the 25-year-old said as reported by the club’s official website.
He also mentioned that the mindset in the Arema FC team is currently the same, namely the match will start with a score of 0-0, so that all players must show their best performance to be able to seal tickets to the top party.
“I am the same as the coach, we have to assume the match will still be 0-0. We have to do our best at home,” concluded Rizky Dwi.
