Opponents PSM, Madura United Not Enhanced 2 Key Players

Club Madura United will not be strengthened by two key players when facing PSM Makassar at Gelora Stadium Bangkalan, July 29, 2017 Judi Bola. Fabiano Beltrame and Peter Odemwingie are sidelined with a foot injury.

“Their legs are both swollen, now still undergoing physiotherapy for recovery,” said Madura United coach, Gomes de Oliviera, Wednesday (07/26/2017).

Seeing the condition of his injury, Gomes estimates Fabiano and Peter can not be played against the PSM because it leaves only three days before kick off.

The absence of Fabiano and Peter will obviously affect the team of sape kerrap troops. Fabiano who is believed to be the captain is a vital figure in the back line in stem the opponent’s attack.

So even Odemwingie figure, since joining Madura United, attack front-line power is dependent on him. Until the weekend of 16th, Odemwingie became the top scorer while with a collection of 13 goals.

The absence of Fabiano and Peter will obviously confuse the coach looking for a replacement especially a substitute for Odemwingie. After removing Baubacar Sanogo and Elthon Maran, Madura United players crisis up front.

Alternative Strategy

Gomes will likely make Greg Nwokolo the lone striker and play more midfielders like Bayu Gatra and Engelbed Sani to support Greg.

As for Fabiano’s successor, there is only one name of Munhar. In the 2014 ISC competition, Gomes always menduetkan Fabiano-Munhar. But the arrival of Fachrudin from Srivijaya made Munhar more inhabit the bench.
