Suara.com – PSM Makassar is ready to host Arema FC at the Gelora BJ Habibie Stadium, Parepare, Friday (20/10) evening in the match week 16 of BRI Liga 1 2023/2024.
PSM coach, Bernardo Tavares, assesses that his opponent this time is a team that has high fighting power. He saw Arema FC when their last match hosted Borneo FC in League 1, Ginanjar Wahyu et al were able to play extraordinary until the last minute even though they lost.
Honestly, Tavares paid special attention to Arema FC forward, Gustavo Almeida, even though the team arrived in less than good condition.

“Arema has the top score in the league at the moment. Gustavo is good for them but they also have other good players,” he added.
However, armed with knowledge of the tactics of Arema FC coach, Fernando Valente, PSM is determined to get full points. He has also prepared ways to anticipate the game of the team nicknamed Singo Crazy.
“We also learned that the Arema team plays by relying on ball possession. “They also rely on individual strengths such as their attackers,” said the UEFA Pro licensed coach.
“We have discussed this before to anticipate this, we have to work harder,” he continued.
