It was so hard, PSM Makassar had to pay dearly for this match by losing two of its players. They were Yuran who got a red card in the 62nd minute and Agung Mannan (90+8).
Although PSM received a card penalty, Bernardo Tavares was also annoyed with the unsportsmanlike game shown by his opponent. One of them occurred in the reply goal scored by Fayadh Zulkifli in the 86th minute.

He described that at that time the players were not fully ready to repel the attacks they were building. Because the beginning of the attack came from the ball of fair play.
“This has never happened. They use fair play balls to score goals. We need to ask what kind of football they showed,” said Bernardo Tavares in his post-match press conference.
“Is this the football they asked for? But what I want to emphasize too, the players have great spirit even though we got a second red card,” he continued.
Even so, Tavares is still grateful that his foster children can perform optimally. With this they deserve to advance to the final round which will be held on 24 August.
As for the final, they will face the winner from Viettel FC (Vietnam) vs. Kuala Lumpur FC (Malaysia). These two teams will compete today at Thong Nhat Stadium, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
