With Matchday 26 set to start Wednesday the 17th, there are 2 big matches to look out for that may have major implications on the title race.

First is the clash between Persib Bandung and Persebaya Surabaya. This match is very important for both teams. Persib need a win to maintain their dwindling lead atop the table, and Persebaya will also be in the hunt for three valuable points in order to stay away from the relegation zone.
The second game to watch is also the weeks last – Arema FC vs Bali United. Bali United in the third place and have narrowed the deficit between themselves to only five points.  A win against Arema FC, who are currently playing their home games behind closed doors, will give them a huge boost in their hunt for the title this season.
Meanwhile, in the relegation zone, PS Tira plays against PSIS Semarang today. PSIS have moved away from the red zone but the possibility of relegation remains if they can’t maintain their current form.
